Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a magic day sailing with Aria Cruises to Peel Island yesterday with friends and family. Rob and Jasmine were great, keeping us entertained and well fed with a delicious morning tea and lunch washed down with a beverage. The weather and water was perfect- loved seeing the dolphins and participating in the water sports. My cruise was a birthday gift and it was certainly a birthday to remember. Would thoroughly recommend Aria Cruises -great fun, great value and an awesome experience.

Sailed with Aria cruises for the afternoon sail on Valentines Day from Ruby Bay Harbour. Exceeded our expectations. A great trip with a wonderful and entertaining crew. Very fresh lunch of chicken, fresh prawns, cold meats and salads with fruit, cheese, kabana and crackers for dessert. Wouldn’t hesitate to go with this crew again. Great value for money.

The Skipper Julian set a happy and positive atmosphere. The Peel island destination was lovely. Diving from the boat and paddle boarding activity was fun. Lunch featured a variety of meat and prawns and veggies. The trip was a peak summer but the boat was not crowded.

Wonderful cruise thoroughly enjoyed by our young Family
Capt Rob and crew were absolutely amazing in ensuring all guests were well looked after. We all really enjoyed ourselves and were blessed with the beautiful weather
Yacht was extremely clean, comfortable and food, drinks were fantastic
Definitely recommend booking direct with them rather than other organisations like scoupon.
Capt Rob will definitely ensure that you will have a fabulous time and he doesn't charge extra for his jokes

Rob and his two new young crew members were absolutely fantastic. I celebrated my 50-something birthday on Aria with family and friends and it was the best day in a very long time. The crew catered for guests ranging in age from 13 years old to 94 years old, the sound system for our party music was awesome, food great and the highlight was all of the water activities for the young people. Stand-up boards, floating sea mat and best of all boom netting! Rob surprised me with an amazing birthday cake as well. An unforgettable birthday.

From start to finish a fabulous day out, 5 hrs of pure fun. The boat was well maintained and very clean, the crew were attentive and friendly, very relaxed (but still professional). the lunch was generous and delicious, as was the afternoon tea. Activities were water based and would have been fun if the weather was warmer, but we did get to spend time on the beach on Peel Island. All in all a great day out, with like minded people, and I would highly recommend this trip.

Another magnificent day on the Aria with Captain Rob and crew Drew and Noah. An abundance of food for morning tea and lunch. Able to view whales, dolphins, turtles and stingray along the gorge walk at Point Lookout.
Can't wait to go again.

We did Aria Cruises River Fire cruise on the Brisbane River. Remarkable bucket list experience for us. Our friends and family are jealous. I could not recommend this cruise or any others by Aria Cruises strong enough.
