About Us

River City Cruises is a family-owned Queensland business owned by Darren and Carolyn Timms.  In 2013, River City Cruises celebrated 10 years of cruising on the Brisbane River.  The boat, the M V Neptune was originally built in the river for the same purpose it is being used for today.  The vessel is a boutique style vessel with spacious deck areas offering uninterrupted views of the passing scenery as well as comfortable indoor areas.

The crew pride themselves on providing quality customer service while maintaining a safe and comfortable journey for all passengers.  Our Captain Darren is ex- Australian Navy and provides an interesting yet entertaining commentary.  The crew is made up of fun and enthusiastic staff who will ensure you will have an enjoyable cruise.

You will see there really is no better way to see Brisbane than from the decks of M V Neptune.

"Hi - We were lucky enough to hop on board your boat for your River City Cruise last Sunday morning and had a magic experience.  Although being locals we have never thought of doing this cruise before.  We have once gone on the CityCat but the cruise we had with you on Sunday was far superior.  It was more relaxing and intimate and your narration of the history and sites as we passed was superb .. and the morning tea was both unexpected and delicious.  Thank you for making our day so special.  We will definite;y enjoy your hospitality once again in the future and will tell our friends and family about our wonderful cruise with you."

"Hi Carolyn - We had a fantastic night! I thought the girls on board were so friendly, easy going and very helpful.  The service of food was spot on, plenty of it and served on time as requested, let's just say nobody went home hungry.  Drinks were flowing all night and i was very impressed with lemon and lime being on hand that night.  Everyone loved the music! even though it was old scholl we all went down memory lane and had a sing along.  Alll in all a great staff event that was thoroughly enjoyed by all of us.  We didn't even want to get off the boat when it finished!"
