Cruise into your next event with us.

You, your guests, a boat or three and a good time.

ENTERTAINMENT 

For whatever event you have in mind there is an abundance of entertainment options. The Popeye has been host to various Adelaide Fringe shows, painting classes, cabaret acts, weddings, cocktail courses, movie screenings, Christmas parties, art exhibitions and so much more. You can hire your own band or performers or get some extra inspiration from our past events on Facebook or Instagram.

FOOD

Always welcome to bring your own family favourites. For those in search of that perfect pasta that pairs best with our red wine of choice, we can call up our friends at Andre’s to whip up something special. Or lets host a three course meal, organise a Frenchy soiree, or order your own pizza delivery. Whatever floats your boat.

DRINKS

To not take advantage of great South Australian brewers, wine makers and distillers would be very un-Australian of us. Proudly stocking local favourites in wine, beer, cider and spirits. And don’t forget the cocktails.

SPACE

We can host up to 49 guests on board with unlimited options on how to use the floorspace. Cocktail tables, silky persain rugs, a 5m long center table, rustic bench seating or free floor space.
There is surround sound with the ability to play your own music, hire a DJ, strum your guitar or leave it up to us and our Spotify collection.

WAIT STAFF

Need a hand? We’ve got it.

WEDDINGS,
CHRISTENINGS…

FOR A DAY WITH A DIFFERENCE!
We will make sure your next event on the Popeye is a memorable experience, whether you choose to celebrate on board or merely use us as a shuttle service from one location to the next.

SCHOOL EXCURSIONS & REUNIONS

SCHOOL OR FAMILY REUNION.
Children enjoy the fun in learning about the history of the river. Why not combine the trip with a visit to the zoo?

BIRTHDAYS AND ANNIVERSARIES

A TRULY MEMORABLE EVENT!
An unforgettable venue for your celebration. Why not host a party with fingerfood and drinks for your family and friends, select the music and have a wonderful time.

SOCIAL CLUB AND CHRISTMAS FUNCTIONS

COMBINE YOUR EVENT WITH A CRUISE!
Rather than repeating what you did last time. Do something new and fun. It is a great way to socialise and if it is in December …. You never know, Father Christmas could arrive by paddleboat!

COCKTAIL PARTIES & HENS NIGHTS

AS FORMAL OR CASUAL AS YOU WOULD LIKE!
Enjoy canapes and decadent desserts, champagne, and orange juice as you smoothly cruise down the River Torrens.

CORPORATE PROMOTION & TEAM BUILDING

A GREAT EVENT AWAY FROM WORK
We are located a short walking or tram distance from the CBD. Take a day to make your business stronger and ensure your staff get to know each other better.
