The Captain was very pleasant, also the history of the river and the owners of the houses. Well done

We did this tour on our last day in Perth after a busy 8 days travelling the SW corner. We thought it was 90 minutes, but it turned out to be twice that, and it was a good opportunity to just sit and relax, and appreciate how vast the Swan River really is, and also the extent of the cities of Perth and Fremantle.The tour commentary was very good, and we learnt a lot about the local history. The only downside was that our photos are not very sharp as taken through the windows, possibly because of salt spray, but will still be good enough for our memory folders. Thank you for a very memorable trip. Wes and Julie Hart

What a great experience!
Our family were visiting from Spain and we thought a trip down the river would be a lovely idea. Even though we live south of Perth and visit the city regularly, we got to see it from an entire different perspective.
Unfortunately we were running a little late thanks to the traffic, but Captain Cook Cruises phoned to check if we were nearly there, and waited for us to board. The captain welcomed us as the late arrivals with a little chuckle which made us laugh.
We had a wonderful trip. The captain told us about the houses and boat clubs and many interesting stories about the river as we traveled along.
When we got to Freo we had a chance to chat with the captain and he was a wonderfully enthusiastic guy....really nice.

We would recommend this trip to visitors and locals alike. You won't regret it.

WE had a fantastic cruise to Fremantle and would recommmend it to all viewers of this site. The crew were very informative of sites along the way and very welcoming and friendly. Perth itself, an extremely clean and busy city.

Had a great trip down the Swan to Freemantle. I have done this a few times and will do it again. A great place to take family and friends who are visiting Perth.

This is a lovely and inexpensive way to show visitors the Swan River. If only the weather was a bit better it would have been perfect. Will definitely be doing this again.

What a lovely way to spend time in WA !!! I travelled with my Aunt, who uses a walking frame, and I would like to commend to you Siobhan who was most helpful in assisting my Aunt on and off the vessel as well as organising suitable seating. As it was also my Aunt's 92nd birthday, the day was special. The only disappointment was that no one advised me that we could have purchased lunch on board, however, we did have refreshments with us and the whole experience was very much appreciated. Thank you, (Dr.) Merryn Twemlow
