If you wanna experience the true beauty of the waters and skyline of Perth city, take this tour. It will worth all your cents. It starts from the city centre and ends at Fremantle so it's like cruising the whole of Perth city without the traffic jams on the road and continue to enjoy the sights in a very comfortable seat. If you have very limited time in Perth, this will make your short trip more memorable and enjoyable.

We took the Swan River Morning Cruise to Fremantle and return. The cruise provided the opportunity to see how the Swan River dictated the developemnt of Perth and how the river plays an important part in the of lives of people who live in Perth. The commentary was well paced and informative pointing out points of interest along the way. A worthwhile opportunity for visitors to Perth to see the city from the water.
