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!!
