Victoria Boat and Yacht Charters
Port Phillip Bay And beyond
Victoria presents the boating enthusiast a variety of activities in a multitude of environments. Set sail on Australia’s largest bay, board a boat cruise along the Yarra River or an historic paddle steamer chugging along the Murray River.
For those who like to get wet, they can visit white sand beaches along the Murray River, and the cozy bay beaches that expands along the Mornington Peninsula from Frankston to the heads. The unspoiled Ninety Mile Beach in Gippsland is also a magnificent boating playground just waiting for you to explore it. Victoria also offers scuba divers an intense underwater world of shipwrecks, varied marine life, kelp and soft corals forests. To get the most out of the underwater experience join the crew on a local dive boat to explore the rocky reefs and wrecks.
Surfing is also big in the warmer months in Victoria; tourists come from around the world to surf the breaks at Bells Beach. Learn to surf with an expert, or watch the champions at work at the annual Rip Curl Pro event. If you bring your own boat to Victoria, you’ll find launching ramps, public jetties and boat storage. Some accommodation businesses offer private jetty mooring for their guests. If you don’t have a boat, try one of the charter yachts, cruisers or day boats. There are good day cruises and extended cruises on offer.
Gippsland is home to Australia’s largest groups of inland waterways, and it is a popular destination for water sports enthusiasts. Explore the vast lakes, national parks, port-side villages and the Ninety Mile Beach. Further north, the seaside village of Mallacoota is surrounded by the deserted beaches, wildlife and whales-spotting of Croajingolong National Park. For a more relaxing water experience, hire a houseboat and Explore along the Murray River, past red gums and paddle steamers, and stopping off in historic ports to fill up on fuel and regional food and wines. Boating licences are required for most boat operators. Persons hiring or chartering a boat may be exempt, check this out with our helpful staff before booking we are more than happy to help!
Port Phillips wide bay is a fantastic and popular choice for boat and yacht charter fanatics who launch powerboats, yachts and other watercraft on the mostly calm waters. There’s usually a breeze to fill your sails, as well as excellent facilities, including launching ramps and marinas. If you don’t have your own boat, hire a boat from a local boat hire operator. You won’t require a license if you are over 16 years of age, and the boat is not capable of travelling at over 20 knots. You can also hire canoes and kayaks if you feel like a bit of exercise. Alternatively, book yourself on a boat charter and let someone else do the driving.
Phillip Island is a popular destination for those who like a day or two on the water, join a charter expedition departing from larger towns including Cowes, San Remo and Newhaven. There are many companies that run a selection of cruises including trips to Seal Rocks and French Island from Cowes jetty. You can also take a ferry trip to French Island or the Mornington Peninsula with Inter Island Ferries Service.
The Great Ocean Road coastline is a beautiful area that has to be experienced from a different perspective. The perfect way to do this is to hire your own Boat or Yacht charter and navigate your own way around the large region. There is also a number of Tour operators at that provide their expertise and outfit for all levels of experience, skills and exploration tastes and offer lessons as well as tours.
If you’d rather not do all the work, then the option is to join a tour operator on a picturesque cruise this way you’ll be able to sit back and enjoy every single minute. Operators run trips up the Glenelg River from Nelson and most main towns along the Great Ocean Road. There are many beautiful cruises running out into the ocean which take in local seal colonies or whales in season. Travelling by boat allows you to enjoy the scenery of every area your visit at a more leisurely pace. Cruising and fishing in Victoria is some of the best quality that you will ever see and the local rivers are a good way to experience the region of Victoria at it’s best.

Freshwater streams, lakes and reservoirs provide good catches from the bank, shoreline or boat, with the most commonly caught species being trout, chinook salmon, Murray cod and golden perch.
