Plan your cruise

The Popeye fleet has 3 boats, each able to accommodate up to 70 people. Boats are available for hourly charter during the day or evening.

The Popeye boats are due to undergo a complete new interior makeover over the next few months. Changes to the current fixed seating to accommodate tables for a comfortable dining experience as well as awnings to keep out the weather are just some of the exciting upgrades proposed.

So, not only will you be able to go for a leisurely cruise down the Torrens River, you will be able to have “High Tea” or enjoy a light meal as part of a corporate event or a special celebration.

Please look at our functions page for ideas and a list of our catering hire sheet.
