Swan River Boat Hire in Perth and Fremantle

Swan River boat hire offers a unique and memorable way to experience the beauty of Perth and Fremantle in Western Australia. Whether you’re planning a corporate event, a family outing, or a romantic getaway, cruising along the iconic Swan River is an experience not to be missed.

Explore the Swan River in Style

Hiring a boat on the Swan River allows you to take in the stunning scenery at your own pace. Glide past the city skyline, admire the historic buildings, and keep an eye out for the local wildlife. With a variety of vessels available, from luxury yachts to cozy pontoons, you can find the perfect boat to suit your needs and budget.

Customizable Experiences

One of the great advantages of Swan River boat hire is the ability to tailor your experience. Many companies offer catering options, allowing you to enjoy a delicious meal or refreshments on board. You can also choose to add extras like music, decorations, or even a personal skipper to ensure a truly memorable day on the water.


We travel to a variety of well-known tourist destinations, which are both fascinating during the day and breathtaking at night. Sail beneath the Mitchell Motorway Narrows Bridge or take in the city views from Elizabeth Quay. As you sip wine and drift through the historic brewery, sail by water sports and sailing yacht activities. As we glide into Fremantle, look back at the breathtaking sights of Kings Park in the background.

We hired out the Live Wire for a birthday celebration on Friday night. We could not fault one thing it was a prefect night. The staff were amazing; super friendly and helpful. The photos didn't even do the boat justice it was huge, very clean and everyone was comfortable. I have been on a few boat cruises and i can say now i would not go anywhere else. Thank you Brandon and your team we hope to see you again very soon.

Hosted a 30th birthday party out on the Swan River with Pelican Charters in January and it was a fantastic experience! The crew and admin staff were friendly and really organised. It was great not to worry about organising cooking the barbecue too! The crew even ensured we were positioned in front of Elizabeth Quay when the cake candles were blown out for a fireworks display that was a huge surprise and delight for our guests. Thanks heaps! :)

We had an awesome Xmas party on board the Pelican and highly recommend Pelican charters to one and all. Peter (the Skipper) and Jaxon (deckhand) did a great job looking after us and we look forward to getting back out on the water in the near future. Merry Xmas!

We had our work Christmas party with Pelican Charters and do not regret it one bit! From the date of enquiry, to the service on the day, they were amazing to deal with. Everyone was extremely helpful and the crew members on board were friendly. We highly recommend Pelican and would happily use them again!!
