Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    There are cruises on the river then there is the very unique experience offered by The Little Ferry Company.
    Sitting onboard a boutique, solar electric boat with Edwardian design/fitout is more than a little unique. There is no smell of diesel or noise of a throbbing engine as you glide gently up the Swan River. Talk with the skipper as he takes you on a very personalized tour of the Swan River. He will provide some of the history and background to some iconic venues/locations along the way..
    • Elizabeth Quay
    • City landscape and points of interest
    • The Swan River [Derbal Yerrigan]
    • On The Point hospitality complex
    • Heirisson Island 
    • Perth Optus Stadium [and The Camfield restaruant/bar]
    • Crown Casino and Crown Towers
    • Claisebrook CoveThe little ferries carry a maximum of twelve passengers and add a little bit of magic to what is Perth's #1 river cruise experience [Trip Advisor] This is a hop-on/hop-off service so you can choose to have lunch/coffee/wine at one of the many bars and restaurants along the way and come back on a later ferry - have a chat with the skipper when you hop onboard to personalise your journey

    We were just walking past looking for something to fill in our extended days in Perth due to the bushfires. Best attraction we found in Perth. Beautiful day for a cruise down the Swan River. Rory was an excellent host.
