Swan River Boat Cruises

Swan River Boat Cruises - Hire a boat on the Swan River for the best party cruise

Swan River boat cruises offer the best and most affordable boat charter hire options whether your cruise leaves from the city of Perth or leave from beautiful Fremantle.

Choose from our wide range of boats ranging from 2 to 200 guests. Get ready to have some fun on a Swan River Boat charter.

Most of our Swan River party boat cruises offer:

  • Large BBQs
  • BYO drinks and food
  • Catering packages with many affordable gourmet options
  • Great deck space for dancing and moving about
  • Party lights
  • Plenty of iceboxes or eskies
  • Sound systems with iPod connection

Swan River boat cruises are a minimum four hours though there are exceptions to the rule (especially for wedding cruises and wedding transfers).

Two time slots to choose from for Swan River boat charters

  • Swan River Day cruises - Between 9am and 5pm
  • Swan River Evening cruises - Any time after 6.30pm

(* We like to provide a one-hour window between all day and evening boat charters to allow sufficient time for the skipper and crew to clean up the boat).

The majority of Swan River charter boats are based in Fremantle and for that reason it is cheaper to hire a boat from there. Perth City departures and returns tend to cost slightly more, as the owners have to cover travelling time and extra staff costs. For a boat this amounts to three hours travelling on the Swan River with no guests on board.

Carnac Island

Carnac Island is a favourite boat charter destination

Carnac Island boat charters have practically become more popular than Rottnest Island boat cruises. It seems like almost every major boat party event and raft up happens at Carnac Island.

Carnac Island is closer to Fremantle than Rottnest. It has gorgeous, crystal blue water, seals in abundance, and her bays are more sheltered from the prevailing winds.

It takes less time to get to Carnac Island and offers a more pleasant journey. You generally cruise into the wind on the way out and have the wind behind you on the way back. Perfect for those who suffer a bit from motion sickness.

And if the seclusion and tranquility aren’t major pull factors, then perhaps your budget will be.  When you go to Carnac Island, you aren’t charged a $16 fee (tax!) per person for the joy of going there. When you go to Rottnest Island you are!

If you do the sums, there are considerable savings to be had and some boats will even offer you a discount for Carnac Island cruises.

For more information on Carnac Island cruises, speak to our friendly cruise managers on 0405 353 353 or click here to email us your wish list.

Swan Valley Winery Cruises

Swan Valley Winery Cruises - take your friends to the  Swan Valley wineries

Swan Valley winery cruises are an amazing experience that few charter boats in Perth WA can offer. That’s because the Causeway Bridge (near Victoria Park) is so low that most boats can’t get under it.

However, there are a few winners that can get from Barrack to the Sandalford Winery and guess what, BlueSun2 has them!

Swan Valley Winery Cruies - three options

  • Up to 15 passengers - BYO your own food and drink
  • Up to 100 passengers - Fully licensed vessel
  • Up to 150 passengers - Fully licensed vessel

Boat cruises to the Swan Valley take 2.5 hours from Perth to the Sandalford winery. Boat hire is normally a four-hour minimum and you can go one-way, though terms and conditions apply.

You can also join other passengers on one of Captain Cook’s winery cruises.

Booking a Function at the Sandalford Winery

The iconic and much touted Sandalford Winery is a winning destination for both tourists and corporate clients alike. Her location in the Swan Valley is both stunning and amazing, with her sweeping vistas of growing vines and lush lawns. But hidden within is her award winning restaurant and her fabulous selections of wines.

From BlueSun2’s point of view, the Sandalford Winery is a wonderful destination that can be reached by boat!

Call us on 0405 353 353 for boat cruise options or for more information on planning:

  • Winery Tours

Rowley Shoals

The Rowley Shoals - the most prized diving and fishing destination in West Australia

No company in West Australia has done more to promote the Rowley Shoals than BlueSun2.

Over the last 12 years, we have been behind over 15 televisions shows, from fishing (Fishing Australia, I-Fish, Fishing WA) and diving, to luxury travel programs. As remote as this destination is, we have helped to put the Rowley Shoals on the map, whilst also being a part of the "catch and release" fishing program that is now an accepted industry standard for all vessels going to the Rowley Shoals. In 2005, we helped to secure one of only three tourism licenses for vessels to go to the Rowley Shoals.

Today, we want you to experience this totally and utterly amazing marine wilderness.

Much more information is available on BlueSun2's other website www.kimberleyboatcruises.com.au  so click on the link here and see what the Rowley Shoals has to offer.

 A bit of background history on the Abrolhos Islands - what to expect

There are 122 Abrolhos Islands that are fed by the southward flowing Leeuwin Current creating a living marine haven for rock lobster, coral and a vast array of fish. Stunning lagoons are plentiful and there are even perfect diving and snorkelling spots too. For the more adventurous, join us for some world-class surfing adventures.

Nothing beats the Dutch history of the Abrolhos Islands, especially the horror story of the Batavia shipwreck in 1629 that left 100 sailors stranded for two months to fend for themselves and against each other. This is a shocking story of murder and mayhem, where relics survive to this day.

Geraldton is the nearest port to the Abrolhos Islands and is only 60kms north of Perth.
