We caught the Fremantle Explorer (Perth - Fremantle return) and it was perfect for those that want to enjoy the lovely river cruise plus spend a few hours exploring Freo. There are drinks available on board for those feeling festive!

This tour,in either direction, is really a highlight of of any visit to Perth. A hour spent relaxing and perhaps enjoying a glass of wine, while a very informative and interesting commentary explains the scenery and attractions you slowly pass by. Great photo opportunities are there or all. Young and old will all love the experience.

The people were lovely and service was great, but found the tour un interesting, the food disgusting and the wine poor for what you paid for it. Where we ate wasn't even a winery and was located in the suburbs near a truck yard

Went as a couple for a cruise recently. A bit overpriced and overrated, however nice view along the way, good for once. Wouldn't go again.

As a Perth local of thirty something years it was a great reminder of what is in Perth's own backyard to take the afternoon cruise to Fremantle and return to Perth . Great views of the city and properties surrounding the river, small pieces of local history were given out during the on board commentry, a passing parade of sailing boats, ships and other forms of water craft. Excellent value at $35 per person which included tea & coffee with wine tasting on the return journey.
