View Melbourne from a perspective that most don't get to enjoy, with one of our relaxing photography cruises around Melbourne's waterways. Take in the sights of Docklands, the commercial port with large container ships, Melbourne city, historical bridges along with bird and marine life.
Our experienced Melbourne photographer Benjamin Eriksson is on hand throughout the boat trip to offer advice and encouragement to everybody's needs and welcomes any questions, whether you're a complete beginner or more advanced.

We offer photography cruises which suit beginner photographers through to the advanced photographers. Our cruise offers everyone a different perspective and something a little different from your everyday picture-taking excursion.

Onboard you are treated to a complimentary coffee or tea on our sunrise cruise or a beer, wine or soft drink on our midday or sunset cruise. We will also have some pastries for our sunrise cruise and cheese platter on our sunset cruise for everyone to enjoy.

While we can never guarantee a big colorful sunrise or sunset, we do get our fair share of amazingly colorful skies and being on the water the reflections can be stunning on calm mornings or evenings.

Like no other cruise, we actually stop and allow time for you to capture Melbourne's magnificent views. Enjoy the unhurried pace which allows time for swapping lenses, checking settings and reviewing results. Photography cruises is limited to a maximum of 20 people to ensure all participants are comfortable and can freely move around the vessel.
