Cruise was enjoyable enough. Smooth ride. Liked sitting out the back on the way back to feel more like I was actually on a boat ride. Pretty much impossible go hear captain or guides instructions over PA inside so commentary was inaudible. Didnt bother us as I was travelling with locals who could point out sites. Happy to just enjoy view.

Lovely experience, clean facilities, friendly staff

This was an amazing experience with great views and knowledgeable descriptions from the captain of the sights we were seeing. We were very impressed with how clean the facilities were and also how friendly and approachable the staff were on board. We will definitely tour again if we visit Perth again. A+

We had a wonderful day on our swan river cruise. Went on the older boat first which was lovely. Nice hot coffee and lovely staff. The only negatives were the smell of beer in carpet near the bar and unable to hear the commentary about the history and the sites. On the way back after a few hours spent at the Fremantle market we returned on a newer boat. The commentary was Chrystal clear and the staff again were lovely. Very spacious with plenty of room. Only negative here was that the coffee was cold. Overall an interesting day which we all enjoyed thoroughly.
