What you can expect on a Swan River Cruise on board the Lady Grace
On a typical Swan River Cruise , depart Fremantle the leisurely cruise up to Perth to see the breathtaking city lights by night or the picturesque views of the skyline and tranquil bays during the day. Cruising from Fremantle to Perth takes about 1 1/2 hours, we then like to moor near Mosman Bay or Point Walter while we cook your BBQ an allow you time to enjoy your meal. We then head back to your return point. We can change this itinerary to suit your requirements, its not set in stone just a guide. There is no better way to see our beautiful Swan River then cruising along in our Lady Grace enjoying the views perhaps with a glass or two of champagne. Our minimum booking is 4 hours , although we can extend your cruise.
