We cannot recommend Captain Alan highly enough. His boat is beautiful and he took such good care of our family on what was a difficult day spreading my father’s ashes. Alan was so supportive and kind. We would not hesitate to rent the boat again, it is a great boat….you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Alan and enjoy your next Indo adventure. Jen, Nicky and family.
Alan is an amazing captain! He is so kind and is so helpful! We highly recommend him!
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.
There is a feeling of elegance as you board this historical vessel making Vlaming sought after for wedding transfers, winery tours and any special occasions requiring long lasting memories.

We do offer the most classic, elegant boat and assure you a memorable cruise. For small tourist groups there is no more comfortable way to view Perth and its surrounding suburbs from the river.
