Did the wine cruise yesterday (21/01/17) for a birthday. We were there early and was first to board, however, they had chosen our seats for us. As adults, this was disappointing. Behind us was a big group for a party and in front of us was a group of 12 young girls. The captain did give out some instructions and... More

Great cruise to Fremantle. Travel time is just over one hour. Great to look at the houses along the Swan River. Fascinating to see the million dollar houses including Kerry Stokes and Gina Rynhart. The captain gave a great commentary. Highly recommend this river cruise.

Hi Katharine, Thank you for giving us a perfect rating and for recommending this cruise to other travelers. The million dollar houses along the shore are very impressive and can only be seen from the river. The Captain's commentary points out some of Perth's most iconic landmarks and also provides general information and facts about Perth which is helpful and... More

Great evening of dancing and viewing the city from the river. Food was fantastic. Good selection including prawns, beef and hot and cold selections. Must leave more room for the desserts next time. Excellent, all inclusive night out.

The return trip from Perth to Fremantle was excellent. However it would have been even better if the quality of sound from the speakers was improved. The captain provided a very detailed commentary but it was difficult to make out what he was saying. The free tea and coffee was a nice touch as was the wine tasting on the... More

A great afternoon trip to saunter down the Swan River with family and friends. An option to purchase lunch with our return back was available but priced out of reach for our troupe, so we went into the local cafe before departing and packed a few snacks. The guided tour was informative and interesting, not overloaded with 24/7 facts, but... More

Very informative commentary on the occasions when you could hear it , as it came across quite muffled at times. Free Coffee and Tea available on board, however it was advertised as Wine Tasting on the 15.45 return to Perth _ Wine was available but in very limited quantity. I would say there were 4 Bottles in total between everyone... More
