"Compact Luxury"
Dec 2019
We booked this package through Red Balloon and everything went smoothly. this included our own skipper and champagne & cheese and this was ample for our party of six. We did have the convenience of adding our own Christmas treats as well.
Matt the owner is one of the friendliest operators around. He is very responsive to phone calls and helpful to all our questions even when we forgot to pay for an add on but after calling Matt he was happy for us to fix up the following day.
The electric boat is very quite and although not very big comes with all the luxuries one needs. There is a small bar fridge and tiny rest room. The cafe blinds are clean and easy to see through and protect from the breeze.
All boats are named after Matt's children and we had the pleasure of travelling on the Pia Mae, which now has the cleanest floor. This was our only issue that the Champagne flutes didn't sit correctly in the cup holders.
Our skipper Chris was a delight to have on board and we cruised along a 5 knots. the 90 min ride was perfect as we traveled along the Yarra river pointing out different landmarks.
Our weather was perfect and we can't thank Matt & Chris enough for their efforts in making our Christmas treat stress free and enjoyable.
We were amazed

Highly recommend this adventure
