Captain Proud was originally built as the Proud Lady and worked as one of the original showboats on the Port River.
In 1993 the vessel entered the River Murray from the sea at the Murray mouth near Goolwa and traveled to Echuca. The Captain Proud has now returned to Murray Bridge where it used to trade since 1995.

Captain Proud has proudly put back into service by Greig and Vesna Donaldson and its Dining Room has been Recently Renovated. Captain Proud is available for charter and cruises 7 days a week. We have standard Daily Cruises from Monday to Sunday from the Main Wharf at Murray Bridge (near the old trains).

Please visit to see all our cruises and we also have real time on line bookings. Instant confirmation so please print the confirmation and bring on the day of your cruise.
Why not try us for any of our cruises and your special occasion.
