The Mighty Swan River is an alluring attraction for gatherers to the Perth CBD of Western Australia, bringing locals and tourists alike to converge to the stunning water’s edge and take in the majestic views of the river and the towering city in the background.
Now there is another way to take in the sights and the surrounds of the swan river and it comes courtesy of The Little Ferry Co. A luxury little ferry shuttle that guides you around the Perth area and drops you off for dinner.
Any more relaxed, you would be in paradise.
The Little Ferry Co.
The Ferry Service offers a boutique experience along the Swan River where small groups can mingle and socialise in the quiet tone of the solar powered ferry.
Passengers can then disembark off the ferry at a couple of select locations and enjoy quality dining at a variety restaurant in Claisebrook, or the popular “On the Point” location, which is home to some of Perth’s finest restaurants.
The ferry itself is small in structure, but big at heart. Completely run on solar, the ferry travels at speeds of approximately 4-5 knots and flows smoothly through the water without little fuss.
The Little Ferry occupies 13 passengers who can enjoy a quality ride, with the only sounds coming from the chatter of the passengers or the captain giving a detailed narrative of the surrounding attractions.

Embark at Elizabeth Quay
Elizabeth Quay is the vibrant hub of Perth City with an array of city art, walking paths, kids’ festivities, cafés and restaurants. It is also the home for all major Ferry shuttles and Cruises coming out of Perth.
The Little Ferry Co. shuttles can be found tucked in behind the Trans Perth Ferry service. Just keep an eye out for the pretty little boats that are waiting for you to board off the jetty, situated near the V Burger Bar.
Dine in Style
As mentioned previously, the services run throughout the day and stops at three separate locations, Elizabeth Quay, On the Point and Claisebrook.
Upon disembarking, you can choose from a number of top quality restaurants with riverfront views.
From there the choice is completely yours, you can dine in style, take in a few drinks, enjoy a coffee and later embark on the returning ferry without any added fees.
Sightseeing from the Swan
With the ferry running at relatively low speeds, sightseeing is easy to appreciate with the wonderful scenery and attractions that are around you.
On one side, you are faced with the city views, towering apartments and luxury town houses that you can only dream of occupying. On the other side, there is the popular Perth crown casino and hotels, gorgeous parklands and the new Football stadium, which is to open in 2018.
It would be a shame to leave your camera at home.
