Whether you’re on your first date with the girl you super-liked on Tinder, or looking to sweep your life partner off their feet, Radelaide has got your February 14th romantic rendezvous covered.

Your knowledgeable skipper will highlight landmarks and points of interest along the way, making for a pretty and educational date. Opt in for the whole trip, stop off at the zoo, or travel one way only - with no bookings required you can cruise on down (hah) whenever suits you.  For more information, suss here.
