High tea on the sea


One of the great things about Melbourne is that there are many ways you can enjoy a romantic dinner with your partner. Whether you have a favourite upmarket restaurant to go to or you love nothing more than relaxing on the beach with your other half over fish and chips, it’s a city that truly accommodates all tastes. But if you’re keen to do something a little out of the ordinary, then why not enjoy a romantic Yarra River dinner cruise? Discover how Magic Charters can help you as one of the leading providers of dinner cruises in Melbourne.

When you and your loved one hop on board Magic Charters‘ modern vessel, you’ll enjoy a fabulous dinner boat cruise in comfort, style and elegance. We offer a delicious two-course buffet dinner, cooked on board by professional chefs. Complement your meal with a glass of wine or beer, or tea, coffee or soft drink.

Whether you are planning a romantic dinner cruise or an intimate corporate function, Melbourne’s spectacular city and bay views are best experienced upon a Magic Charters luxury catamaran.

Imagine enjoying fresh seafood and fine wines whilst watching the sunset transform the bay into a sea of pink, orange and yellow. Is there a more romantic way to enjoy Melbourne than with a cruise dinner? You’ll be pampered by our professional staff who pride themselves on their attention to detail and excellent customer service.

Your romantic dinner cruise will depart from Water Plaza, Victoria Harbour Promenade or Docklands and cruise under the Bolte Bridge through the Port of Melbourne, under the Westgate Bridge, and down to Williamstown.

The scenery was amazing, just lucky to get some good weather.We recommend this cruise.!!!Valerie WhiteValerie White ★★★★★ Wanted to thank all the team for a lovely afternoon on the river.Special mention to Natasha who was so accommodating, in arranging the day for us.Despite a rather dull and wet day the atmosphere on board was so warm and inviting .The staff were friendly and service excellent plus the food was delicious .We enjoyed being on the water and the sights of a working port with such huge vessels ,cranes and tug boats, very interesting .A really lovely way to spend an afternoon and a very nice birthday present from my familyHermeHerme ★★★★★ Planned my 40th birthday late February then got to see the actual boat with my girlfriends and first time I met Natasha and Capt. Angelo I said to my self this is the place I will celebrate my special day. The hospitality they showed me that day was extra ordinary. To make the story short we close the deal and booked the boat. Before the event I have been in contact with Natasha every now and then and she never fail me, she always helped me everything I need. Booked for 3 hours and added another hour. On the day of the event she allowed us ample of time to set up the venue. Natasha organised the food and drinks we brought and even herself served food to my guests. My friends were amazed how they kept the toilets very clean the whole time. The staff from the bar Carmen with the help of Jacks 2nd officer and Chief Engineer Ian they are all very good. And also Capt Angelo for setting up the drinks. I had hired a dancers and they all accomodate them from start to finished. I have too many to mention how we enjoyed our party, my Friends got back to me and they are all praising how the staff and the boat made their experience unforgettable. Even myself I still felt the butterflies in my stomach how happy I am after the party. Wow it was above and beyond expectations. Will definitely come back for high tea very soon. Highly recommended I have few friends asked me how they can book the boat. Yay! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. And thank you for my besties for helping me plan AngeRonVicLina MullinsLina Mullins ★★★★★ We have been on the Magic Charters for the Dinner cruise and the High Tea, we also had our engagement dinner on there. The staff are wonderful and Natasha has always gone out of her way to accommodate us. Food was delicious and there is always a variety of selection for everyone. The view is amazing no matter what season or time of day you go. I highly recommend this. Love this Dinner Sunset Cruise and will continue to go until I'm officially banned 😂😂Thank you team for a wonderful experience everytime.Con MinasCon Minas ★★★★★ Larissa MadiganLarissa Madigan ★★★★☆ I'd like to start by giving this experience 4.5 ☆. So many aspects deserved 5 ☆ except for a couple of small details.1. The boat. Lovely and clean. Modern and bright and the tables were spaced out enough that we had privacy. It did get a bit hot and stuffy at times but a visit out to the back of the boat allowed us to cool off in the fresh air. The loyalty free music was a bit like being stuck in an elevator at times :)2. The staff. Lovely, professional yet relaxed. Attentive and polite.3.The food. I was very grateful that Magic charters cater to Vegans and I was able to have a vegan version of the high tea while my husband had his own regular high tea and the couple next to us had a Celiacs version of the high tea.Tea, Coffee and sparkling wine top ups were offered regularly throughout the event. The quality of the food and drinks however were a little underwhelming. A lot (if not all) were obviously store bought items but not unpleasant, just average.4.The cruise. It was so interesting to see Melbourne from so many sides as well as the shipping areas and Williamstown.Getting up so close to the shipping container ships really makes you feel very small in comparison. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was relaxed enough while still feeling a bit special.It was a great finish to our day in the CBD and we would highly recommend it to anyone.Ron FodenRon Foden ★★★★★ Friendly staff and efficient. A great experience.Mark and SherleneMark and Sherlene ★★★★★ All inclusive on board food and beer n wine… amazing service and the views of Melbourne coming alive at Dusk is sensationalAsh HicksAsh Hicks ★★★★★ Cannot recommend highly enough!
