Private Charters

Perfect for special occassions, corporate charters, bespoke tours and International markets


Explore, Taste and Sip, while cruising in style on the glistening waters of Port Philip Bay.
Surrounded by sights of the magnificent You Yangs Ranges, the Melbourne city skyline and more, all on your privately chartered vessel.

Our fully refurbished Huon Pine, 40-year-old vessel, provides for a luxurious, exclusive and unique coastal experience.

Seafood, wines and good company!

Sip on a local Bellarine wines and learn about the processes of growing Portarlington mussel from our mussel farmer Lance Wiffen. Touch the mussel ropes as they’re pulled from the water and get a front row seat to the whole farming process. Watch Lance shuck his locally grown Angasi oysters, before tasting them 3 ways.

Cooking demonstration and tastings will introduce your group to delicious mussel recipes that you can savour alongside premium local produce.

Our beautiful vessel has been fully refurbished and is very comfortable, with indoor and outdoor seating, heating and cooling, and a bathroom thats worth taking a selfie in! We cruise fairly close to shore, and enjoy many wonderful sights from that vantage point.

Create the ultimate experience:

Bring the group across to Portarlington, direct from Melbourne via ferry. Only 70 minutes away from the city, cruise on the comfortable Port Phillip Ferries, which travels daily between both destinations.  If you really want to create a special getaway, book your crew to stay at the stunning boutique Portarlington Grand Hotel. It’s a short 5 minute walk away from our tour on Portarlington Pier, and many of their rooms have views across the bay.

We can also arrange pick up from Geelong or Wyhndam Harbour. Travel fees may apply
