Overview
See some of Perth’s top sights from the water on a leisurely Swan River cruise. As you depart the city center, admire Perth riverfront attractions like the Bell Tower and King’s Park, and glide past pretty suburbs to reach Fremantle, located where the river meets the Indian Ocean. Coffee and tea are provided on board, as well as wine tastings on select departures. Choose a departure time when booking.
What to Expect
Your cruise starts in central Perth, where you’ll board your boat and set off down the Swan River, catching sight of landmarks like the Bell Tower, the old Swan Brewery building, King’s Park and the Royal Perth Yacht Club. Float past the city’s upscale suburbs to admire waterfront homes, and take in the bustling inner harbor of Fremantle, a historical port city on the other side of the river.

Listen to commentary from your captain, who turns around at Fremantle to make the return trip to Perth. A selection of Western Australian wines are available for tasting during the 9:45am and 2:15 departures. Your cruise ends when you arrive back at the starting point.

Great service, fantasic way to travel from Perth to Fremantle. Commentry was informative, comfortable ferry trip with sensational views, some of those houses on the river banks are amazing. Swans on the river were beautiful. Worth the trip.
