Your journey commences at Elizabeth Quay in Perth, where you will meet your skipper and take a 14-seater jet-boat ride to Fremantle. Travel across the Swan River and see landmarks including beautiful Kings Park and stunning mansions along the way as you following the contours of the spectacular river.

On arrival at Victoria Quay in Fremantle, your opportunity to explore WA Maritime Museum awaits!
