A Memorable Experience

This was a memorable experience for our family. A half day (5 hrs.) sailing cruise on a beautiful catamaran boat. Captain Rob and his crew member Adam were friendly and were so easy and pleasant to deal with. Not only did they provide amazing customer service and entertainment they also acted as a tour guide giving us info on the island (Peel Island) amongst other things. What we liked best about our trip was that it had an easy going vibe and also the scenery and the many activities Aria Cruise offered. It was a fun and also a relaxing day and was a memorable experience for us as a family. Thank you Rob and Adam and Aria Cruises for this experience. We will definitely be back again with our friends and family!

Whole Family Fun

Six members of my family, including a 1x 13 year old boy, and I had an absolutely amazing day on the water and on Peel island this week.The Captain and deckhand were lovely, the boat was fantastic, and the experience was something money could not buy. My family from Victoria were visiting us , and we don't often get together as much as we would like. A day out with Aria Cruises was an absolutely wonderful way of making lifetime memories. Thank you so much. We will definitely be returning and spreading the good word about our experience with Aria Cruises.

Great Day Out!

My team booked our work Christmas Party onboard Dream On and all I can say is it was one of the best parties we have had in a long time. The crew onboard added to the experience and looked after us. Amazing experience and will definitely book again and recommend Aria Cruises to the rest of our company for their teamparties.

Business Christmas Cruise

This is the second year we have used Aria Cruises for our end of year Xmas work function. It is a fantastic get away from work as the Aria Cruises team look after everything. Food, boat, location. It's a very simple and easy step on step off work function to arrange and use. If you have less than 20 staff or can split days between departments this is a perfect option for a short work getaway.

A Gift That Will Not Disappoint

We got this for my mum and her boyfriend as a Surprise for Christmas. They went yesterday and they can't stop raving about how good it was. My mum even got a photo with the skipper. I'm pretty sure they'll be back. This was one present that definitely did not disappoint.

Morning Cruise to Peel Island with Buffet Lunch

Jacob was a wonderful Captain, we thoroughly enjoyed our day. The catamaran was a good size and our family had everything we needed. We especially loved the boom net on the way home. Nothing was too much trouble for the delightful crew. We are definitely going again.

Super Day Over Christmas!

We have cruised with Aria several times previously so knew what to expect. This time we were with friends and family and it was, as always, spectacular. On this occasion, Jacob was the skipper and Reuben was the deckhand. Both were fantastic!! We have all agreed to make this an annual event over the Christmas period.
