Always a good experience.

I've been travelling with Captain Cruise quite a few times and have always been happy to do so.
This trip between Perth and Fremantle is a lovely relaxing and beautiful trip whether you choose a return trip or just from one end to the other.

Round trip from Perth to Fremantle & back again
Jun. 2021
We did the round trip sightseeing cruise from Perth to Fremantle & back again.

It's the same boat as the lunch cruise which is served on the main deck and the sightseers are on the first deck.

The staff were very friendly and once we were on board, the passengers on the first deck were left to enjoy the view.

As we'd booked a return trip, we weren't allowed off the boat once we got to Fremantle and if we were to do the trip again, we would have only booked one way so we could get off and explore. Luckily we'd explored a fair bit of Fremantle in the days prior to the cruise.

Definitely recommend a cruise down the river to enjoy Perth from another angle. The crew shared lots of local info along the way which made the trip interesting.

Good afternoon Sally, Thank you for taking the time to leave a lovely review for our Swan River Scenic Cruise, it is a great way to see parts of Perth and Fremantle from the river. We certainly agree, for those who wish to explore Fremantle we recommend booking a one way cruise and catching the train back to Perth. Thanks again Sally, we hope to have you on board again in the future! Kind Regards, Paula - Captain Cook Cruises WA

Seemed to fly (sail?) by.
Dec. 2019
Not being a real fan of cruising, I was a bit hesitant to voyage from Barrack Street Jetty to Fremantle when my brother suggested it. However, my experience from start to finish with Captain Cook Cruises changed my mind and the experience worth it.

The one hour and fifteen minute, one-way journey to Fremantle, seemed to fly (sail?) by as we got to enjoy a unique perspective of the Perth Skyline from the water and took in unobstructed views of downtown Perth, elegant homes (mansions), parks and marinas along the Swan River all whilst listening to the Captains' detailed and entertaining commentary.

I did the two-way version
Jan. 2020
I left from Perth and when I booked had to chose how long I wanted to spend in Freeo. The options were something like 2 hours, 6 hours or 8 hours, there was no middle ground so I ended up doing the 2 hour version. I spoke to a couple on my boat who'd gone for the same option and we all felt at the end that it wasn't enough time to properly see the place, you had to have one eye on the time the whole time so it was a bit stressful. I got a taste of Freeo though. The boat rides were both pleasant, with interesting commentary and on the return journey a free wine sample (thimble size though!) Crew were friendly enough and it all went smoothly, just disappointing choice of departure and return times.

Not very wheelchair accessible - a sill to get over to get into the boat.
Mar. 2020
Interesting experience riding with the same company two days in a row - we went to Rottnest the day before and on this Perth to Freemantle cruise the next day. As a person with disabilities who uses a wheelchair, the experience on the first cruise was EXCELLENT on how I was treated - there were ramps all the way along for me to get on and off the boat. This cruise was NOT accessible - there was a ramp up to the boat however one had to go over a high sill to get into the boat. Now, on the outbound, I could see they were boarding the boat fast, however on the inbound they KNEW I was on the boat and should have put an additional ramp down so I did not have to go over the sill.

Good morning Imnei Thank you for your comments - we really appreciate your feedback. Yes, our vessel to Rottnest Island is 100% wheelchair accessible, and we are very proud to offer this service. The vessels that we use on the Swan River services are not quite as accessible, and it really depends on what vessel we are using on what day. I can certainly see your point on the day that you cruised with us however. It would have been a good idea for the crew to put in place an additional ramp to make disembarkation easier for you. Please be assured that we always aim to make our vessels as accessible as possible, and we will take your feedback on board for when we are operational again. Thank you Imnei. Kind regards, Katrina

Good morning SPALVIS, Thanks for your feedback. We agree, if you are visiting or live locally, the one way late afternoon cruise from Fremantle to Perth is a 'must do', and a great way to see our beautiful Swan River! We hope to welcome you back with us another time. Kind regards, Katrina

First time on the river route
Mar. 2020
Having visited Freemantle several times before by road we thought a 75min cruise on the river would be a pleasant enough way to travel down & then return by train.
All started off OK with some historical & wildlife commentary but that descended into who has the most obscene amount of money to spend on mostly a ghastly architectural monstrosity, which means $$$ does not = taste. So glad I am poor.
No mention of the container rainbow approaching Freemantle but at least we were spared how many rivets were used in each bridge.
The bar provides a range of drinks, however, we were to find out that a flat white (a stupid description, I would like a short black or is that not PE ??) simply meant a coffee with a splodge of milk from the fridge, oh well it was not overpriced.
Despite this I would still recommend the trip, at some times maybe with ear plugs.

Very good way to get to Fremantle
Feb. 2020
I enjoyed this trip. There was a commentary as we went down the river that was interesting. It was not particularly crowded, I enjoyed a coffee on the way, and the drop off was at the market, so made a good start to seeing Fremantle. We only went one way by ferry and went back in a ride share, which for two was cheaper.

Sound System Deficient
Mar. 2020 • Couples
Very very hard to hear what is being said with the on board commentary. Near impossible as sound system has way too much bass plus with the noise of the Diesel engines running I missed about 50% of what was said so that certainly needs fixing ! On board drinks are expensive ! Milking the tourists to the max comes to mind !
