RIVIERA NAUTIC The award-winning team at Riviera Nautic in Metung provides excellent services in charter yachts and cruisers. The Riviera Nautic charter fleet is large and diverse and includes yachts, cruisers and day boats. The boats have been carefully considered for their ability to take holidaymakers to all corners of the Gippsland Lakes and provide quality accommodation and space to holiday in comfort. All yachts and motor cruisers are fully equipped - the cruisers even have televisions and DVD players. Barbecues are a standard inclusion, so you can cook up a meal all within site of the best lake views. Great care is taken when charters are booked to ensure the customer’s needs match those offered by the boat chosen. A boating licence is not required to charter any of the vessels and help is never far away should you need it, with 24-hour support available throughout your charter. BULLS CRUISERS Bulls Cruisers has operated on the Gippsland Lakes for more than 70 years and now offer cruisers that sleep two to 10 people. Each vessel has toilets and hot water for the showers and a fully equipped galley with a fridge freezer. The Bulls Cruisers fleet also includes two well-appointed, roomy yachts that sleep up to five people. While sailing experience is preferred, tuition can be arranged at additional cost for those wanting to try their hand at sailing on the yachts in the fleet. If you are looking for a lake adventure but only have a day, why not hire one of the Bulls Cruises’ day boats or their classic fishing boat. Visit Ocean Grange, Sperm Whale Head or 90 Mile Beach and drop a line as you go. Kayaks are also available for hire and their fuel jetty is available to all, 365 days of the year.
