Worst experience of my life took friends from South Africa on a river cruise from Perth to Fremantle and return with lunch included. So bad had to get off in Fremantle and get a taxi back to Perth. Lunch was greasy chicken in a box,...More

Having lived in Perth for almost 7 years, this was the first time I ventured out to see what humpback whales. Believe it or not, I didn't know that was possible in Perth until I stumbled upon a Groupon offer. The trip was very much...More

Picked up a Groupon for a whale watch from Hillarys Boat Harbour and it was worth double what we paid. Best Groupon experience ever. The boat was lovely, crew were happy, friendly. We saw heaps of whales and I spotted a Great White shark. Don't...More

The captain / tour guide is clearly very knowledgeable about Perth, and justifiably proud of the Swan River. However, his non-stop political diatribe and unfunny and rude jokes detracted from the enjoyment of the tour. I hope that there weren't any overseas visitors present, because...More

The lady at the counter was very rude, sarcastic and not helpful at all. They have big advertising signs stating prices are from $25 and another one from $18, but you get told that they are from $28. Very confusing advertising.

Half the price of other tours, ok food and drink weren't included but a cup of tea was $3. The driver/guide was very informative if a little opinionated. The boat was comfortable with aircon and plenty of 'open' areas to take pictures. The back of...More

I am surprised the Proprietor of this cruise still has a license to run his business. The overall experience was terrible. The boat itself is old, uncomfortable, has no air conditioning and is untidy and not fit for purpose. You couldn't go out on the...More

Very old, run down, and hot boat. Was purchased through the Groupon deal they had on offer. Would definitely NOT be a repeat customer! $35 for a bottle of Bowlers Run Wine ($3) from Dan Murphy's is an insulting price. No air-con on a hot...More
