Welcome, skip to the content.

Riviera Nautic has one of Australia's finest fleets for yachts and motor cruisers and the Gippsland Lakes are second to none for safe cruising with lots of easily reached and very beautiful destinations. Their wonderful boating holidays are a complete change from the everyday world - making them so special and relaxing.

The Lakes are sheltered from the ocean by a thin line of sand dune that forms the Ninety Mile Beach. There are two national parks, small port-side towns with restaurants and pubs, three rivers for cruising and fishing, and vast expanses of lake for outstanding sailing. No rocks, reefs or tides - so the boating is easy and safe.

The yachts offer everything from exciting challenge to quiet cruising: for sailors with lots of experience or those who wish to learn to sail for a lifetime's pleasure. The cruisers are a wonderfully relaxing way to explore the Lakes, even if you've never stepped on board a boat before.

The holidays are backed by outstanding service and Australia's most prestigious tourism award - the Australian Tourism Hall of Fame.

If you only have a few hours to spare, Riviera Nautic also offer a fleet of day boats, kayaks and scenic cruises onboard 'Riviera Scenic'. Riviera Scenic offers regular afternoon cruises that are a superb way to sit back and relax, whilst their experienced staff show you around the Gippsland Lakes.
