Swan River Cruises
Perth's #1 Rated Swan River Cruise!
There really is no better way to enjoy the sights of the beautiful Swan River than with one of WA Fishing’s Swan River Cruises. Even though fishing is our passion, it is not the only thing we love. Let us delight you with a relaxing 3-hour cruise on the Swan River from Perth to Fremantle and back again. Your enjoyment is our prime concern and we strive to bring the same flawless service to our Swan River Cruise as we bring to our deep-sea charters. Enjoy your skipper’s colourful and informative commentary as you sail past famous landmarks like old Swan Brewery building, the Bell Tower, King’s Park and the Royal Perth Yacht Club.
On the way to Fremantle, you will have ample time for photos and videos of the one of a kind scenery and landmarks as you appreciate the grand waterfront homes as we glide past the prestigious suburbs which line the river. Once we near Fremantle you will see where the Swan River meets the Indian Ocean, and experience the lively inner harbor of Fremantle. This harbour serves as the chief port of the city of Perth and it hosts the popular Club Marine Fremantle Harbour Classic, an annual yacht race held within the Fremantle Harbour. While on board, we will provide you unlimited coffee, tea, and soft drinks served with lunch and our famous mini fruit pies.
Our three-hour Swan River Cruise runs at 9:00am, 1:00pm, and 5:00pm daily.
We also offer sunset cruises on the Swan River. We depart at 6:00pm and follow the same route as our daytime river cruises; however, our sunset cruises also feature wine and cheese tasting. The skyline after the sun goes down is a beautiful sight that you won’t soon forget.
The Swan River Cruise is also an option for private outings. We offer the same amenities and attention to detail as our deep-sea charters, but at a slower pace with a shorter duration. Don’t forget that our river cruises are a wonderful option for special events, our guests particularly enjoy booking private parties for Australia Day and New Year’s Eve, because of the amazing view of fireworks displays from on board. The skyline also makes a stunning backdrop for intimate wedding celebrations and family gatherings.
Fishing Along the Swan River
If you are in the mood for a Swan River outing with a bit of fishing, consider booking our Swan River Fishing Charter. Your excursion begins at 7:00 am when we head downstream where the best variety of fish are located. Because of its proximity to the Indian Ocean, many varieties of juvenile fish inhabit the area. However, our crew will check out the catch for keepers.
On the Swan River, you will also have a chance to land some species of fish inaccessible on our deep sea fishing charters. The black bream and the bar-tailed flathead are abundant as are herring, tailor, flounder, silver bream, pilchard, and mulloway. Additionally, this area is a great location for king prawns, river prawns, squid, and crabs. Our skipper and crew provide the same service for our Swan River Cruise as you would receive on a deep-sea excursion.
As with the deep-sea charters, our main concern is your enjoyment while catching fish; we handle the rest of the details including morning hot beverages, breakfast, coffee/tea and juice, as well as lunchtime burgers and beverages. Charter Fishing Perth provides the same equipment and helpful services on our river excursions. The same terms apply concerning the weather conditions for the Swan River Cruises as for our Deep-sea charters. Be sure to confirm your reservations before heading to the dock.
