Interesting experience riding with the same company two days in a row - we went to Rottnest the day before and on this Perth to Freemantle cruise the next day. As a person with disabilities who uses a wheelchair, the experience on the first cruise was EXCELLENT on how I was

Good morning Imnei Thank you for your comments - we really appreciate your feedback. Yes, our vessel to Rottnest Island is 100% wheelchair accessible, and we are very proud to offer this service. The vessels that we use on the Swan River services are not quite as accessible, and it really depends on what vessel we are using on what day. I can certainly see your point on the day that you cruised with us however. It would have been a good idea for the crew to put in place an additional ramp to make disembarkation easier for you. Please be assured that we always aim to make our vessels as accessible as possible, and we will take your feedback on board for when we are operational again. Thank you Imnei. Kind regards, Katrina

Good morning SPALVIS, Thanks for your feedback. We agree, if you are visiting or live locally, the one way late afternoon cruise from Fremantle to Perth is a 'must do', and a great way to see our beautiful Swan River! We hope to welcome you back with us another time. Kind regards, Katrina

Having visited Freemantle several times before by road we thought a 75min cruise on the river would be a pleasant enough way to travel down & then return by train. All started off OK with some historical & wildlife commentary but that descended into who has the most obscene

I enjoyed this trip. There was a commentary as we went down the river that was interesting. It was not particularly crowded, I enjoyed a coffee on the way, and the drop off was at the market, so made a good start to seeing Fremantle. We only went one way by ferry and went

Very very hard to hear what is being said with the on board commentary. Near impossible as sound system has way too much bass plus with the noise of the Diesel engines running I missed about 50% of what was said so that certainly needs fixing ! On board drinks are expensive !

I am pleased to let you know that we are looking at replacing our speakers on board the vessels over this down time, so hopefully there will be an improvement to the sound quality once we are up and operational again, Thank you Ozi_999 Kind regards, Katrina
