Perth has everything you’d expect from an Australian city – long, sandy beaches, lush greenery, striking architecture and a relaxed, laid-back vibe - and the most atmospheric way to take in the sights is from the water. Whether cruising along the scenic Swan River towards Freemantle Harbour or venturing further afield to explore the islands of the Indian Ocean, there are plenty of options for cruises in Perth – here’s a breakdown of the top choices.

Lunch and Sightseeing Cruises
Whether you’re a first-time visitor or looking to get off-the-beaten-track, sightseeing cruises offer a unique overview of Perth’s attractions and you can even combine it with a coach tour of Perth or Fremantle, or entrance to Perth Zoo. Take a Scenic Swan River Cruise and spot top landmarks like King's Park, Fremantle harbor and the Bell Tower, or venture out to the suburbs on an Upper Swan Lunch Cruise, tucking into lunch and traditional afternoon tea as you drift past the famous Belmont Park, the prestigious Ascot racecourse and the impressive Burswood Entertainment Complex. For something a little more luxurious, opt for a Swan Valley Wine Cruise from Perth including lunch and wine tasting at the grand Sandalford Estate, or tuck into an array of fresh local seafood on a Fremantle Lunch Cruise.

Dinner Cruises
Perth is a magical place to spend the evening hours and there’s nothing more romantic than cruising along the water after dark. Choose a Perth City of Lights dinner cruise and indulge in a delicious 3-course dinner as you float along the Swan River, gazing out at the illuminated city and sipping wine on deck beneath the stars.

Rottnest Island Cruises
Just 18 km from Perth on the Indian Ocean, the tranquil, car-free Rottnest Island has long been a popular retreat for city dwellers and with its hidden bays, vast, unspoiled beaches and adorable population of quokkas, it’s easy to see why. Explore the island’s charms on a Rottnest Island Tour from Perth or Fremantle, then take a wildlife cruise to spot dolphins, seals and seabirds around the coast, or enjoy a Rottnest Island Snorkeling Cruise and discover an underwater world of colorful corals teeming with everything from harlequin fish to Western rock lobster.
