An incredible experience my family and I decided to do on a whim. Beautiful views of Perth that you wouldn’t find anywhere else, and an amazing skipper. I’m not usually one for thrill seeking, but this experience allowed me to experience a safe and thrilling boating experience with the sharp turns and speed. Absolutely amazing for the whole family!!

Great little tour of the Swan river but not for the faint hearted. Bring your sense of adventure and enjoy a unique view of the city from the water.
