Not being a real fan of cruising, I was a bit hesitant to voyage from Barrack Street Jetty to Fremantle when my brother suggested it. However, my experience from start to finish with Captain Cook Cruises changed my mind and the experience worth it. The one hour and fifteen

I left from Perth and when I booked had to chose how long I wanted to spend in Freeo. The options were something like 2 hours, 6 hours or 8 hours, there was no middle ground so I ended up doing the 2 hour version. I spoke to a couple on my boat who'd gone for the same option

Interesting experience riding with the same company two days in a row - we went to Rottnest the day before and on this Perth to Freemantle cruise the next day. As a person with disabilities who uses a wheelchair, the experience on the first cruise was EXCELLENT on how I was

Response from SeaLinkWA, Front Office Manager at One-way Sightseeing Cruise between Perth and Fremantle
Responded Apr 5, 2020
Good morning Imnei Thank you for your comments - we really appreciate your feedback. Yes, our vessel to Rottnest Island is 100% wheelchair accessible, and we are very proud to offer this service. The vessels that we use on the Swan River services are not quite as accessible, and it really depends on what vessel we are using on what day. I can certainly see your point on the day that you cruised with us however. It would have been a good idea for the crew to put in place an additional ramp to make disembarkation easier for you. Please be assured that we always aim to make our vessels as accessible as possible, and we will take your feedback on board for when we are operational again. Thank you Imnei. Kind regards, Katrina

Good morning SPALVIS, Thanks for your feedback. We agree, if you are visiting or live locally, the one way late afternoon cruise from Fremantle to Perth is a 'must do', and a great way to see our beautiful Swan River! We hope to welcome you back with us another time. Kind regards, Katrina

Having visited Freemantle several times before by road we thought a 75min cruise on the river would be a pleasant enough way to travel down & then return by train. All started off OK with some historical & wildlife commentary but that descended into who has the most obscene
