On behalf of my entire group, I would like to extend our greatest appreciation to Riviera Nautic for helping us with our little getaway last weekend.

Both families in our booking had an outstanding time using the Crusader, jetting around to some different areas on the lake to enjoy some fun watersports. We did everything from kayaking, paddleboarding, jumping off piers and the boat, fishing, swimming and just chillaxing on the beaches and on the top deck of the boat.

Your friendly and professional team delivered an excellent service from start to finish. The wonderful communication leading up to the event made it easy to plan and address our questions and the support and guidance throughout the briefing and whilst away on the trip was fantastic.

We have recommended your company to a number of our friends and we would happily re-book with you again in future.

Again, thank you all for making our getaway so memorable and enjoyable.

We recently booked a 7-day sailing holiday with Riviera Nautic and had the ABSOLUTE BEST time.

We were able to sail our own boat and enjoy the stunning natural beauty of the Gippsland Lakes. Our yacht was well-maintained, clean and super comfortable. I was worried how we’d go with 2 kids and 2 adults on a boat for a whole week, but it didn’t feel cramped at all, and it was amazing to dock next to a jetty or pull onto a beach and swim, walk, fish, play and explore to our heart’s content.

We got to hang out as a family and spend proper quality time together – sailing during the day and playing board games on the boat at night – away from our usual screens and devices!

The Riviera Nautic team gave us plenty of guidance and were always available to answer questions both before we arrived and once we were on the water.

Highly recommend a boating holiday and with Riviera Nautic, it was so easy and so, so much fun. Thanks RN team!
