What a relief it is to ride aboard an electric boat with no diesel fumes or noise! A great little trip in the tranquility of a small, silent vessel with excellent commentary! Thanks!

Arrange a few friends and seek out this option. You have run of the boat, bring drinks and nibbles. Glasses and ice supplied. Relaxing way to get a different view of Perth. No snazzy commentary, just down to earth care from Captain Bob.

We have some very special boats ozzie021 [solar electric old fashioned design] but, what makes our ferry cruises a little bit special is the skippers - they're equally as old and understanding :-)
