The boats are solar powered, so the cruise is quite leisurely. Captain Rory and first mate Mark are very helpful and knowledgeable about Perth, their boat and the river. This suits a small group. Claisebrook Cove is a great destination.

The ferry is beautiful with timber finishes, open windows and the electric motor is so quiet it's like drifting up river in old fashioned style. Our skipper was fun, relaxed and knowledgeable about the sights we were passing and even the dolphins made an appearance!

This was a great way to see a bit of Perth that is experiencing a lot of change, especially around the new Stadium. The solar batteries and electric motor meant that we didn't have to put up with the noise like regular ferries. Capt. Rory...More
