Great trip. Highly recommended.

We took the trip up the Swan river with the destination being a vineyard and some wine tasting and lunch. It was good fun from start to finish.

We chose the cruise to Fremantle at 9:45 returning at 15:45 - to allow plenty of time to explore Freemantle. The cruise was informative and leisurely with free tea and coffee (am/pm) with wine tasting on the return. Nice sights en route and a pleasant way to see Perth from a different perpective.

Pre booked tickets although that is not always necessary. Parked close to the ferry terminal in Fremantle. The vessel is well staffed with outdoor seating to the front and rear, and a larger shaded indoor area. The journey takes approximately 90 mins. We were lucky enough to see the river dolphin swim by. The Captain gives a commentary on various... More

My husband and I had the opportunity of cruising down the Swan River sipping a nice wine purchased on board, enjoying finger food which we took on board and singing, dancing and watching the birdlife and growing buildings around a very pretty river.

Definitely worth the cruise $30 per adult one way to Fremantle without lunch. The trip is very informative as you're crusing along the Captain is sharing alot of local knowledge. Some of the properties and their value is jaw dropping!
