What to Expect
This is a unique experience cruising aboard WA's only solar electric ferry - whisper quiet with no smell of diesel fumes. Eloquently styled in Edwardian fit-out our little ferry takes you on a cruise along the Swan River opposite the foreshore from Elizabeth Quay to East Perth. Our experienced skippers provide a personalised commentary along the way stopping off at;

On The Point: a stunning hospitality complex sitting out from the shoreline of the river housing eight different bars, cafes and restaurants

Claisebrook Cove: An absolutely unique slice of Mediterranean architecture with boutique cafes and

On the way back we drop into Optus Stadium for a special treat. Who wouldn’t want a guided tour around this stunning new, state-of-the-art complex. 60,000 seat state-of-the-art multipurpose stadium [opened in January 2018]. And sitting alongside.. The Camfield, the largest licensed venue in the Southern Hemisphere

You’ll be treated to breathtaking views of the playing surface, the Swan

River and Perth city from the Stadium’s highest vantage point, and also

experience the inner sanctum. Along the way you will discover sports

memorabilia detailing WA’s rich sporting history, and don’t forget your camera

because there will be plenty of photo opportunities around the Stadium.

The tour of the stadium takes around 1.5hrs and we return for pick-up and drop you back to Elizabeth Quay.

The cruise and tour takes 3.5hrs and departs from the Quay at 10.00am and 12.00pm every day [except on event days]

Cruise along quietly with no fumes and be entertained by the ‘driver’ along the way. A sort of guided tour as you head towards Burswood and the new Stadium. Here some of the history of the buildings and river along the way and grab a free bottle of water if you’re thirsty. The

Hi ronaldrover2018, thank you for your feedback and we agree that it is the best value for money and, the cruise & guided tour of Optus Stadium is quickly growing in popularity. I'm not sure whether the earlier cruise at 10.00am was booked out on the day you chose but there is generally that option if you prefer the earlier start to your day. Hope to see you back for one of our other package cruises sometime, cheers

Hi cjmale5929, thank you very much for your review. I think the two skippers who looked after you on your cruise were Mark and John :-) Good to read that you enjoyed your cruise and guided tour of the stadium and the hospitality/commentary of our skippers.
