Blessed with a Mediterranean-type climate with mostly warm and sunny days throughout the year, Perth makes a great place to explore outdoor activities such as boating, swimming, or simply lazing on the beaches. Hire a boat in Perth for a great day on the water sightseeing or exploring nearby spots like Rottnest Island. The capital city of Western Australia is surrounded by the Swan River on the south and the east, which forms an idyllic setting to experience the many wonders that the place has in store.
There are many fascinating places in and around Perth where boaters can enjoy and explore the waterways. The winding Swan River offers many fishing, swimming, sailing, and kayaking opportunities. You could even hop on one of the river cruises between Perth and Fremantle for a relaxing journey. Enjoy the natural beauty all around and the many posh houses that stand proudly on the riverfront. If you are in a mood to navigate a little farther, take a cruise to the shores of the Swan Valley for a mouthwatering sampling of local food.
Hillary’s Boat Harbor, which is located just 12 miles away from central Perth, is an impressive marina that has something for everyone. When you are in Perth you can also visit the nearby Cottesloe, Port Beach, City Beach, Como Crawley, and Point Water for a day of family fun. The four Perth islands, Rottnest Island, Penguin Island, Carnac Island, and Garden Island, are a boater’s paradise. You can either visit these islands on your boat or take a day trip on a ferry or as part of a kayaking tour. However, you need your own boat to access the Carnac and Garden Islands. Rottnest Islands has fantastic surfing, fishing, and shore-based snorkeling opportunities.
We had a wonderful experience with Alan and his daughter on their beautiful boat. The wind was up but they found a protected little bay for us to enjoy the autumn sun. Can't wait to book it again.
I would like to comment about our wonderful boat cruise on Sunday 5th December for our family to say our final farewell to our parents who past away quite recently within a month of each other. It was a beautiful day made even better with the help and assistance of Captain Alan and Marley. He complied with all our wishes big and small and took us all on a lovely cruise on our beautiful Swan River , which unfortunately some of us locals lose sight of its glory and it was wonderful of him to remind us. I could highly recommend this charter to anyone who simply wishes to enjoy a day on a lovely old lady of the river under our summer skies and enjoy the beauty of Perth. Thankyou Captain Alan Kind regards , Dianne Chaytor , Ray Hince and families
We hired the boat (which came with a true gentlemen, in Captain Alan) for a solemn occasion of scattering my Dad's ashes. Alan was responsive and involved with us every step of the way, to ensure it was a memorable day for the family. We couldn't have asked for more or a better farewell to Dad. Thank you, Alan. God bless you!
Thank you Alan for a great experience, me and the girl had the best day. Alan is a great Captain, he took us to some great spots where we saw dolphins which was awesome. He’s very friendly and laid back and and the boat is beautiful. Highly recommend.
We had an absolute amazing time with Alan on his boat. The boat it self was beautiful and couldn’t recommend this enough! It was really an experience not to forget! Alan was great and found some lovely spots down the river. We even managed to see dolphins swimming along the boat. We couldn’t fault this trip!! It was amazing :)
Antoni and Kate were first class. It was a difficult day for our family, dropping my mothers ashes, but they were thoughtful and patient. Thank you again for your kindness and understanding. Please also note they were punctual. The whole family had a positive experience.
