About Waterfront Charters

Waterfront Charters is one of the original tenants of the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. The founders of the business are still involved in the daily operations, and strive to provide unique fun filled experience on the water. Our boats are situated on Quay 5 and North Quay right outside the Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre in the waterfront and provide the perfect interaction between the city and the working harbour.


Daily scheduled Cruises - a range of boat trips operating daily from 11h00 until the last cruise of the day; the Sunset Champagne Cruise
Private Charters - choose from our range of eight vessels (power and sail)

Last month a group of friends went on the jet boat . WHAT AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE IT WAS. We couldn't have choosen a better day for this. The weather was perfect, the sea was so calm. Half way through the ride, hundreds of dolphines started swimming and jumping along side the boat. I have never seen such a beautiful sight in my life. The staff was so friendly and welcoming as well. I will definetly reccommend the Jetboat to everyone & anyone thats up for something new and exciting to do.
