There’s a wizard-themed boat cruise coming to Melbourne

Wizard boat cruise

A wizarding themed boat cruise is popping up on the Melbourne Docklands on September 3 for one day only.

Melbourne’s wizard boat cruise is an 18+ cruise along the Harbour Esplanade, which will allow passionate Melburnians to learn spells, drink magic potions and enjoy a boozy brunch fit as you cruise around the iconic sights of the city.

While the whole thing is clearly very much Harry Potter-inspired, it lacks official licensing so expect a lot of innuendo and near-fits.

The boat cruise is titled The Wizard’s Cruise, and is marketed as an event for all lovers of magic and fantasy.

“Witches and wizards (young and old) can anticipate a spellbinding atmosphere where imagination runs wild,” the organisers said. “A place of pure imagination, great food and even better company. Come and discover the magic.”

Tickets cost $99 per-person and include one wizards themed roast (vegetarian option available), one side and a “magical beer” on arrival. There is also a full themed cocktail and drinks menu onboard including butterscotch beers, bloody unicorns, magic mocktails and more.
