About Wild West Charters

We offer a unique opportunity to explore some of the most beautiful places in Perth with amazing information based tours. Our guides provide fun, informative, and safe experiences that are sure to leave you with lasting memories.

Wild Ride

Experience the open air and incredible scenery as you take a ride on one of our wildest boats! Our comfortable vessel is designed for all ages, with staged seating to personally savour each moment. Feel speed combined with dependable manoeuvrability no matter how rough the waters become; relax in knowing we’ll get you there safely—and back home dryly too!

Wild Destinations

Perth has some amazing tours to offer, both short and long! Take a journey through its iconic rivers like the Swan and Canning - explore secluded spots right next to Perth's bustling CBD. Be sure not to miss out on Kings Park as well; you'll find two contrasting worlds just minutes away by water. Venture past Perth’s shores for even more adventure- take in magnificent islands, reefs, sounds found within the warm waters of Indian Ocean that lie beyond her world class beaches!

Wild Life

Discover amazing native wildlife in their natural environment. From just meters away you can observe these animals interact with each other while respecting their space - all without ever having to step foot into a zoo. See rare Australian Sea Lions up close at Carnac Island or spot graceful black swans as they swim down Swan River alongside Indo-Pacific Bottle Nosed Dolphins (an endangered species!). It’s an experience unlike any other – one that will leave both young and old awe struck by nature's beauty!

Yes it is! You will feel the amazing and “wild” ride of jet propulsion!

Yes, to see as much as you can in 20 minutes.

No, you won’t. We offer a wild but enjoyable ride as we are not a thrill ride. We do not do spins or bucket stops. We do not throw people around – we pride ourselves on being smooth and keeping our passengers comfortable. We take out children and elderly and make it enjoyable for all – it’s what we do best!
