Important Note: When cruising with us, we can cater for 4 basic dietary requirements: Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten Free and Lactose free. However please note that these MUST be pre-booked at time of reservation. We will not be able to cater to dietary requirements advised on the day. Unfortunately we cannot cater for guests with allergies/adverse reactions caused by food. Whilst we have made every attempt to meet a variety of dietary requirements we have met with our suppliers and have been advised that they “cannot guarantee” that our stock has not been in contact with nuts, eggs, soy, or bee products etc during and throughout the manufacturing process. For this reason above, we cannot cater to allergies and are sincerely sorry. We can however welcome all guests with food allergies on a cruise, at a discounted price, so that those guests (if they choose) can bring in their own meal that has been prepared to their exact requirements. Please also understand that whilst sailing we cannot change ingredients for food preferences / individual tastes. (i.e I do not like tomatoes). As we are a vessel, we are unable to stock a large amount of excess food on board to suit all requirements/preferences. Our team of chef’s spend an incredible amount of time sourcing and preparing the menu items and are also confined to an extremely short period of time to serve food in order to keep the cruise operating within the allocated time. Due to these reasons (and in order to keep the cruise at a value-for-money price) we simply cannot provide individual chefs to meet specific tastes nor change or swap ingredients to suit individual preferences. Please remember to advise us when you are making your booking of your dietary requirements (Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten Free or Lactose Free). We have a wonderful variety of food on board so please feel free to peruse our menu online prior to cruising. Please feel free to call our reservations office for further details.

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.
