Had a tour on the Swan River today through to Mandoon Estate with Kevin our captain. Kevin was so welcoming and friendly and we really enjoyed how quiet and peaceful the boat tour was down the river to a beautiful spot for lunch. The ice provided was fantastic for some drinks on the journey and the music was lovely. Would highly recommend for a good day out with a group of friends, especially for a special celebration.

We had a group of 12 cruise to Mandoon Estate. It was such a fabulous day, the ferry is well equipped with glasses, napkins and plates. You can take your own food and drinks onboard. There is ice and an ice bucket in the middle, which was great. The boat omits no fumes and is dead quiet. Rory was great, made us all feel comfortable, and did not intrude on our experience. We had 2 dolphins give us a send off from Elizabeth Quay, which was extra special. At $75 a head, including transport from Mandoon, wonderful value! Such a lovely 3 hours cruising the river, highly recommended.

Hi Jo A, you've described a perfect day out.. a gentle cruise up the Swan River and some equally gentle wine tasting and scrumptious food at Mandoon Estate. Thank you for your great feedback, we really appreciate it. Hopefully you can join us for a Twilight Cruise in the New Year. Cheers

My friends, who are an ethnic pot-pourri of cultures, asked me to organise something different from the norm as an afternoon activity. So, I booked the 5 of us on a two hour Swan River Cruise with the Little Ferry Company, departing from the Barrack St Jetty at Elizabeth Quay. Because I chose the 12noon departure, I decided to bring an afternoon tea aboard the boat, and our Skipper Bob was happy enough for us to do so. The Boat was well equipped with 2 electric motors, which gave it the capacity to travel at 8 knots/ph. This had to be the most comfortable and most enjoyable ferry ride I have every been on in my life, and I speak from experience. Of course the weather was in our favour, and the temperature was just right. We made a few stops in our journey up and down the Swan allowing for a rest room break. The boat comfortably accommodated 13 people, and was especially entertaining because of the on-board commentary provided by Skipper Bob. He was an absolute delight and Fountain of Knowledge, when it came to giving us the history behind some of the historical sites along one of Perth's most under-rated tourist attractions...the Swan River. Skipper Bob was not your run of the mill pilot. The owner, Kevin, had provided him with a very attractive uniform, magnificent boat, and Skipper Bob provided us with a commentary, that included some humorous anecdotes, and perfectly complimented our journey as we enjoyed our specially prepared afternoon tea with wine. Even if we ran into a bit of bad weather, the boat was designed to protect us from light rains, harsh sun, and guaranteed a smooth & quiet cruise. I would strongly recommend this Little Ferry Company Cruise to all residents of Perth, their families, interstate & overseas visitors, and anyone looking for a most relaxing and enjoyable day out in Perth. The Barrack St Jetty is easily accessible by buses, from the Elizabeth Quay Bus Station, which is virtually across the street from the Elizabeth Quay Foreshore Development, boasting some of the best eateries in Perth, and one of two of Perth's only 5 Star Luxury Hotels...The Ritz Carlton. This Tourist Attraction turned out to be the best experience we've had since arriving 40 years ago, and sensational value for money.

"..the best experience we've had since arriving 40 years ago" We've been doing this now for over five years and whilst we have, in my humble opinion, deserved our Trip Advisor ranking of #1, we have never received such a comprehensive glowing review.. fantastic. Thank you Richard S! Its the sort of feedback that gets you up in the morning. It is certainly something that I will share with our crew - it adds sunshine to what has been a very long Covid winter -:)
