Small bus through Gilford to Swan Valley by a very informative driver named Keith. Had a fabulous day with lunch, cheese, chocolates, afternoon tea & drinks along the Swan River on the way back to Perth. Staff on board the vessel were entertaining & just fabulous, they made a verry happy, joyous atmosphere.

I booked this cruise for a group of 12 lively ladies to celebrate my milestone birthday. From booking the cruise to boarding the boat, everything was really easy and communication great. The cruise is excellent value, considering all the inclusions you get. The cakes on arrival were fabulous, followed by generous cheese boards and then onto wine tasting.
The boat couldn’t sail all the way up to Guildford as planned due to a high tide, however this was no problem and we were kept informed along the way. We sailed to Marylands instead and a bus then took us up the Swan Valley. Fabulous lunch at the Mandoon Estate ( yet more food), then onto the always wonderful Lancaster Winery. Lots of wine tasting! And yet more cheese boards. Then onto the Margaret River Chocolate Factory- chocolate platters… we are very full up now! Back on the boat for the bar opening, more cake and some fantastic entertainment with Lauren singing. The boat had a real party mode on the way back with many groups having celebrations and it was so much fun.
Thank you to all the crew on the boat who worked so hard, especially Lauren ( fabulous voice too) and the lovely Emilie from Belgium. And thanks Kim, our tour guide who played some cracking 80’s tunes on our minibus.
I’d highly recommend this cruise, especially if you are celebrating something, I had a fantastic day!

Hi Salfordred_9, Its always our pleasure to welcome groups on board our tours, and the team at Lancaster Wines really do a magnificent cheese board and tastings. My personal favorite is the chocolate samples at the Margaret River Chocolate Factory - delicious! We appreciate all your positive feedback and will let the team at Mandoon Estate know, as well as our excellent crew, to keep up the good work. Kind regards, Travis

Fantastic experience, customer service and flexibility. The cruise from Perth to Swan Valley was the perfect start to a great day. Knowledgeable captain sharing information about the sights on the way and efficient and knowledgeable staff sharing wine tasting tips and techniques along with generous wine samples and a cheese board to get us started!
Long table lunch with adult beverage included was then provided after a very short drive from the jetty to the Homestead Brewery at Mandoon Estate.
After lunch we split into two groups. Those returning by bus and those returning on a later cruise. Despite having actually booked the cruise return we were graciously allowed to stay with the bus and visit additional wineries and a brewery. This made our day!
Highly recommended tour but ensure you start out hungry! You WILL be satiated...

Hi W3690RQpaulg, Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice and detailed review! We are glad you enjoyed the commentary together with the food and drinks on board. I absolutely agree to start the day hungry, because you will most certainly be full of nice food and great wine at the end of the day! Kind Regards, Rachel

We really enjoyed the cruise up and down the Swan, with good food, drink and entertainment. The crew were great, fun, helpful and informative. I think it was let down by the onshore wine tour portion that was conducted by another provider, as it was lacking in commentary and felt rushed. The locations visited were very busy and touristy and the male guide was rude and standoffish.

What a great day in the Swan River, wine, cheese, tastings and death by chocolate to finish off with. Very generous with the tastings on board, and unlimited wine on the way back - lots of people falling asleep though! The lunch at Homestead was superb as well. Never had chocolate liqueur either which was a novel experience. All in all a great day out.

Good afternoon Gill N, Thank you for your lovely review! It sounds like you had a splendid day up at the Swan Valley and on our Taste of the Swan Valley - one of my favorite cruises and tours we operate! The free chocolate at the chocolate factory accompanied with the liqueur hits the spot. We hope you'll cruise with us again soon! Kind regards, Meika at Captain Cook Cruises - WA

From stepping on board the boat and greeted with coffee/tea & muffins all the way through to a delicious lunch at Homestead Brewery, wine tasting at Lancaster winery and visit to the Margaret River Chocolate factory, everything was very well organised by the super friendly crew. It was a lovely day on Swan River complete with a detailed commentary and opportunity to meet other tourists in a relaxed setting. Plenty of wines & cheeses to sample all day.

We had a lovely day on this river cruise down the swan river and into the swan valley! The crew on board, Lauren, Rod and Andrew, were extremely friendly, and the entertainment from Lauren on the trip home was excellent! The wine, cheese, morning tea, afternoon tea and coffee provided on board was well worth the money spent! I would highly recommended this experience 😊

The relaxed scenic trip up the river was fabulous. The wineries etc visited enjoyable, but Lauren’s singing during the return home was brilliant! You do not expect the crew to be entertainers as well!

We had a wonderful time on the cruise. The captain and staff were very nice and welcoming throughout the whole time on the cruise. The entertainment onboard was very good. The female staff who sang was very talented. Will recommend Captain Cook Cruise to others.
