Fantastic experience
Nov. 2021
This cruise was absolutely wonderful, the weather was great and the staff were amazing, they were very professional, courteous and very helpful.
The wine tasting on the way up was great, the wine tour and lunch were excellent as was the wine and entertainment on the way back.
It was the best way to spend a day out.

Fabulous well organised day. Great staff who worked brilliantly together. Good two course lunch at Sandleford Winery. Good choice of menu. Wine tasting before lunch and one glass of your favourite with the meal. Excellent commentary on the outbound journey and entertainment by the crew on the return - two very good vocalists.

Fantastic Cruise! Coeliac Friendly!
Sep. 2021
This is the second time I have done this particular cruise (4 years apart). The staff couldn't do enough for me. Recently diagnosed with Coeliac (Gluten free), I wasn't expecting to be able to eat much of the food provided, but was very pleasantly surprised. All my needs were catered for! What a fantastic day for my 1st Wedding Anniversary! 5*

DON"T BOOK ONLINE!
1.25% Surcharge for paying by Visa or Mastercard, only other option is POLi (Australia Post Polipay) however if your bank is not supported they give you no other option to avoid fees. Why is there a fee anyway? If the local lunch bar doesn't charge me any extra for using my card to buy a $3 sausage roll, why would Captain Crook need help covering a transaction fee after I am already paying them hundreds of $$$?

Hello jackmE6262SS Thank you for providing feedback regarding credit card surcharges. Customers are always welcome to pay with a debit card, or cash, in person at either of our ticketing locations, in Fremantle or in the Perth City to avoid credit card transaction fees. Payment via Bank Transfer is also more than welcome, with no fees charged. Kind regards, Kat

Jun. 2021
I was not sure what to expect but it wasn't this. We were met on arrival at the jetty and from then on it was fabulous. You board and have a coffee, tea and something to eat then the wine tasting starts and the information with each wine is very extensive and well done by Lisa.. The cruise itself is very informative and well presented by Andrew with Co-Captain Jess. Hope I got the names right. Lunch and tour of Sandalford was done by Tanya and Victoria and again well presented. Then time to shop and back to the cruise. More wine on the return and also singing and entertainment by the crew. I was amazed and loved the whole day. There was a great sense of humour from the crew which lightened the mood and everyone enjoyed. Well done to Captain Cook and especially to Andrew, Lisa and Jess.

Swan River cruise
May 2021 • Solo
This was a fabulous trip with lots of fun. The staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was excellent, the wines good and the tasting notes helpful. The best part was on the way back to Perth one of the staff (Lauren) broke into song with some fabulous tunes like Amy Winehouse and other Cabaret type tunes. She was so good and people started to dance in the aisles. Not only were we enjoying this but she seemed to be as well. Would highly recommend this trip.

An Excellent Day
Did this trip a couple of days ago with family members. Had such a great day. Tea, coffee, wine tasting and a cheese platter on the way to Sandalford Winery. Commentary on the way there. One of our group needed gluten free for the cheese platter and that was no problem at all. ‘V’ (our tour guide at the winery) met us at the boat with a buggy so anyone who needed a lift to the winery had one, though it was only a few minutes walk. After a guided tour through the buildings we were led to a private room where we sat at round tables to sample 6 more wines and were served a beautiful two course lunch. The sauce on the barramundi was lovely. After lunch we sampled some dessert wines at the cellar door and were able to purchase wines. Back on the boat we cruised back to Perth enjoying yet more wines. All served with a smile. The crew were all great and helpful and Jessica entertained us with her lovely singing voice. I have been wanting to do this for a while and was very impressed with everything. I would definitely do this again.

A great day out but a little expensive
Dec. 2020 • Friends
17 of us boarded the cruise at Elizabeth Quay and we headed down the river towards the Sandleford Winery. The staff were very welcoming and we enjoyed the wine tastings on the way. Sandlefords is a beautiful winery and the tour was done really well along with the wine tastings. The food looked beautiful but I was definitely disappointed with the taste I had the ravioli. The cruise on the way back was more full and instead of 5 of us round our table on the way there we had to have another 3 strangers added. They were a lovely bunch and we were all given beer/cider as compensation which was a nice gesture but we were still a bit squashed. We had to wait 30 minutes before the bar opened on the way back and the entertainment was good, one of the singers were amazing but it was just a few songs. I have been on this tour before a good few years ago and i felt it was a greater value for money than this time. Would I go again probably not but we did have an overall fantastic time.

More expensive than lunch cruise buy less value
Morning was long drawn out with a few small tastings . Finally got to bus pick up to be rushed to lancaster cheese wine on small time frMe thdn chocolate fact. Off to brewery which was nice and lunch good. Then back to boat . We upgrade drinks package and got told another half hour wait for bar to open.

Hi BtazGallacher Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate all feedback that we receive as it provides us with the opportunity to review our product and hopefully improve it for next time. We are sorry that you found the day so long and drawn out. It sounds like you were on the Taste of the Valley Tour which does visit a number of different venues and so there is a time limit with each stop, so that you can get back to the boat in time for the afternoon return cruise. Hopefully we will have the chance to welcome you back again, perhaps with a more relaxing option, such as the Swan Valley Gourmet Wine Cruise. Kind regards, Kat

Fantastic Day
Oct. 2020
Booked this cruise to Sandalford Winery for lunch. What a brilliant day. From start to finish we were looked after so well. Lots of wine tastings on the boat on the way up along with a cheese board, then a tour of the winery building, the most delicious lunch (with wine) and more wine tastings. Then back onboard for included drinks and desert on the way back to Perth. Staff member Lauren sung for our entertainment on the return journey. What a fantastic voice she had. We loved the day. It was great value and lots of fun, and also relaxing. We would highly recommend this day out to everyone. Much thanks to the excellent crew that day for making the day very memorable.
