Our bareboating hire on the Swan River does not include a professional crew. This means you, and your family or friends, hire a fully equipped electric driven picnic boat and operate the vessel yourselves. While on a bareboat, you decide your route and for how long you want to be on the river.

Embrace a journey free from fumes, engine noise, and harmful emissions, as you indulge in the beauty of nature aboard our electric boats.

What a great day! We took the six-hour package... definitely worth it. We were able to cruise up and down the river. Even though there were a number of boats, there were no issues in steering and enjoying the day. It was great to hook up to a few places and stretch your legs. Fantastic all around!

Had the most relaxing and amazing time on the river celebrating my brother's 25th birthday with the family along with our pup, Captain! Absolutely loved the fact that the boat is dog friendly! The boat was really easy to operate, very user-friendly. Yvonne and her two girls were really nice and are such a pleasant business owners! Can't wait for winter to be over already! Would definitely go back!

Best day ever!

Had a fabulous day with my friends on the swan river! Hired the boat for 5 hours and thought it may be too much but now I regret not getting it for the full 6. We brought drinks and snacks and had so much fun. Some went swimming and the water was lovely. We actually have seen a dolphin too. I’ll be doing this again!

Everything has been thought of

Amazing way to see the river and take everything in. I book a 3hr cruise for my wife and daughters birthdays and we all loved it. Exceptional service, very informative instructions by email and before setting off to ensure we understood all the rules of operating a boat. Anyone new to boats will feel very confident as soon as they set off. The boat is slow but it’s great, you don’t miss a thing and very manageable for new skippers. Everything has been thought of with this beautiful boat from wine glass holders, a bin to keep the boat clean and a partnership with a great platter company #grazingtheroof. Can’t recommend enough.
