In their own words:

Rod – My 4th trip with Aria Cruises on the “Dream On”, and it was another perfect day, aided by beautiful weather and calm water. Whales galore from the Gorge Walk on Straddie. I’m still smiling at the look of amazement on a Japanese guest’s face as skipper Rob showed his card tricks. Always a fun and relaxing day with Aria.

Nancy – My husband and I went on this wonderful catamaran cruise yesterday from Cleveland over to Peel Island for a wander around. Rob not only provided a wonderful lunch, his stories and jokes made this most enjoyable day out. We couldn’t have asked for a better day! The weather was great, the day was fun, relaxing and the other passengers were great. Watching the sunset on our return was a great way to end our day out adventure. Thanks Rob, we won’t forget your jokes or card tricks!

Aaron – Loved the tour guides was awesome how they both went out off the way to teach my son to snorkel was the best weekend we had in a while thanks a lot guys

Natalie – The endless list of possibilities Moreton bay offers! Specifically loved our trip on Aria Cruises in October with the family over from the UK! Nephew got to drive the boat, we saw Dolphins, had a great experience, very friendly staff and we even had fun swimming back to the boat. One of the best days they have had 

Diane – Omg, an amazing way to spend the day! Highly recommend

Chris – We took our Grand daughter on the Moreton Bay Buffet Cruise. We left at Raby Bay Mariner at 8am. Had morning tea and a leisurely trip over to Peel Island. You could swim, fish off the boat or explore. Got back on board after a few hours and lunch was served. Salads, cold meats and prawns, all terrific. 1 complimentary drink, either beer wine or soft drink. If you wanted more you could buy it on board. There was also a lovely fresh fruit platter afterwards. The crew on board were amazing and the skipper let our grand daughter steer the boat for awhile, which was her highlight. Great day had by all. Thank you.

Jan – I loved sailing around Moreton Bay on Aria Cruises. Swimming at Peel Island and watching the Dolphins playing in the Ocean. So peaceful 

Evelyn – We had the best time with the crew they were fun and very friendly enjoyed the trip over to Peel Island and back and will be back again, thanks Guys.⚓️

Kayleen – I know we were blessed with gorgeous weather, so it would be hard to have a bad day. But besides that, lunch was yummy, skipper had an endless supply of jokes, and Tammy is just a beautiful person. But I was surprised by the excellent condition of the ‘ship’. Plenty of space to stretch out and be alone, or join in and mingle with the other guests. The water at Peel Island was crystal clear. Divine day. Thanks Rob, Louise and Tammy.

DeeJay – A massive THANK YOU to Harry & Brett for a wonderful day out whale watching on Sunday. What can I say…great friendly crew, great food, well stocked bar, comfortable Catamaran and amazing playful whales. Was a perfect Fathers Day. It was a full day 8am till 4:30pm onboard “Dream Away”. Shortly after setting sail we were served a variety of yummy muffins and tea and coffee. Then after a few hours whale watching lunch was brought out and it surpassed my expectations. All kinds of cold cut meats, fresh crisp garden salad, Pasta Salad, BBQ Chicken, fresh bread rolls, fresh local king prawns etc and complimentary beer/ wine. Then after lunch we stopped at Fraser Island for a walk along the beach and for those that wanted to swim on the boom nets sailing back towards the harbour as they then brang out a variety of the most gorgeous cheeses with bickies and fresh fruit and Coffee/ tea. I highly recommend it. Awesome day, We really do live in PARADISE !!!

Simon – Couldn’t have asked for a better day. 6 hours in total, cruising through Moreton Bay, arriving at Peel Island for a dip and fish, all whilst enjoying a few cold ones. Cracking day, thanks to the skipper and deck hand for your hospitality. All the best, will certainly recommend to all our friends. “Dream On” Aria Cruises Moreton Bay!

Rebecca – Hey Aria team, thanks so much for a wonderful trip to Peel Island on Saturday. We had an amazing time – can’t believe the awesome weather and that we saw a baby dolphin! We wanted a chilled out hen’s day and you guys delivered. We also really appreciate your flexibility with us bringing our own catering for all our weird and wonderful dietary requirements lol! Big thanks to Harry and Helena for looking after us, ferrying us around in the tender, showing us the sights of the bay and letting us drive (steer?) the boat! We had a lovely time 

Tamara – What a fantastic service that Aria Cruises provided for myself and my family. This was such a special cruise the entire day was sensational, the captain was one of a kind and without him the day wouldn’t have been such a great success! If you are wanting a trip of a life time and to see up close and personal with the whales here in Hervey Bay. I suggest you look know further I give this company my highest recommendation, and all the very best for the future. Kind regards

The sail home was fun with the occasional spray of water coming over the starboard bow …. One of the best “value for money” days out anywhere in Brisbane. Thanks again to Rob and his crew. Jeffrey and julie

Gail – joining a small group of others (max of 20) aboard the Dream On, we motored out of Raby Bay to Peel Island, which took about 90 mins. There we anchored at Horseshoe bay, where you have plenty of time to fish, swim,walk the beach or just do nothing. Our captain for the day, Harry, filled us in on interesting facts about the bay and islands. Peel island was a leper colony until the late 1950s but is now a national park with bush camping.
Food on board was plentiful and fresh, with morning tea and lunch provided, with a complementary wine beer or soft drink. For the journey back, the wind came up and we were able to hoist the sails- that was the highlight for me. If you want to be able to relax and enjoy a few hours on the water, this is the trip for you.

Nicole – My dad and hubby did a fishing charter on sun morning and loved it. Hubbys fish went overboard apparently (so he tells me lol ). Will definately book again
