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.

On the Margaret River Cruise two of the staff were really multi-tasking on the way home they started to sing and they were really good. All staff from the... More
