A great afternoon trip to saunter down the Swan River with family and friends. An option to purchase lunch with our return back was available but priced out of reach for our troupe, so we went into the local cafe before departing and packed a few snacks. The guided tour was informative and interesting, not overloaded with 24/7 facts, but... More

Very informative commentary on the occasions when you could hear it , as it came across quite muffled at times. Free Coffee and Tea available on board, however it was advertised as Wine Tasting on the 15.45 return to Perth _ Wine was available but in very limited quantity. I would say there were 4 Bottles in total between everyone... More

On arriving at Sandalford we had a brief tour of the winery and then a tasting of six of their wines followed by a splendid two course lunch with a complimentary glass of wine... More

I am always a little hesitant about short cruises but this is one of the best ways to get a sense of the Swan River estuary and suburbs between Perth and Fremantle. Great way to start a day and then explore Fremantle and beyond. Jump on.

On our honeymoon, we booked on the day using voucher. this is great value, to get a window table you will need to book earlier but being sat in the middle tables was no barrier to our enjoyment because you get to move around and sit outside during the trip. We took the cat which restricts numbers making it a... More

Great cruise, food was excellent as was the wine. It was an evening cruise so not much scenery, however, the Perth skyline on the return was fantastic.
