Sail your own way on the Swan River

Only 15 minutes from Perth CBD and Perth Airport you’ll find our launching point at Maylands Peninsula, a river suburb in Western Australia’s capital city. It is the perfect gateway between urbanism and wine land.

The Swan River invites you on a long history line of Indigenous sacred stories, Perth settlement, modern architecture, and fantastic wildlife.

With over 35km of river to explore, you can spend the day discovering new and familiar places from Perth CBD to the spectacular Swan Valley – Western Australia’s oldest wine region.

On your arrival at Maylands boat ramp, we will run you through our safety introduction on how to drive the boat and basic maritime rules so you are confident in handling the boat. This will also be in your confirmation email and onboard the boat. After this, you are free to choose your own route and cruise the Upper Swan River at your own pace. Your Nauti adventure awaits!

We’ll be at the jetty when you return to help with mooring the boat.

You can find more info in our FAQ section here . Please make sure you agree to our T&C’s and understand that when you’re the skipper, you’re responsible.
