Departing from Eagle Street Pier, we head out for the first of many perfect photo opportunities along the Brisbane River.

Enjoy the sights as we leisurely cruise past many of the city's sensational attractions, which may include the beautiful botanic gardens, kangaroo point cliffs, maritime museum, Southbank precinct and the Brisbane wheel.

A sure scenery highlight would have to be the iconic Story Bridge - a heritage-listed steel cantilever bridge that connects the north and south of Brisbane.

Please note, the cruise route is subject to change, dependent on the tides.
