Thetotal time of cruising for the one-way trip is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.I was initially hesitant about how long the cruise was, especially with threekids aged 5 and under, but the time flew by. For a large part of it, the kidswere kept entertained with the Bingo sheet provided by Captain Cook cruiseswhen we boarded. The kids had lots of fun trying to spot enough things to getBINGO – and claim a prize from the lucky dip.


Ourcruise was on a weekday so was relatively quiet. There was lots of room for usto spread out, and to also explore the boat. There is seating available insideon two levels of the boat including booth seats with a table, or you can wanderoutside and enjoy the view and the wind in your hair.


Tea,coffee and water are provided for free on board, as well as a selection ofother food and beverages to purchase. Duringthe cruise there was lots of informative commentary. Even though I’ve lived inPerth my entire life, there were still interesting things to learn. We also hadthe added bonus of seeing a pod of dolphins!


Allin all we had a great afternoon out, and the kids have been raving about itsince. This is a super fun way add something different to your day out in the city or Fremantle.
