The Swan River is Perth's largest river and main geographical focal point of Perth. The Swan River is feed by the Avon and Canning rivers. Most Swan River cruise embarkation locations are at Barrack Street Jetty, cruise past Kings Park and at Port Fremantle where some Swan River cruises enter the Indian Ocean to head out to Rottnest Island, Cockburn Sound and Garden Island. Most Swan River wine cruises depart from the Barrack Street Jetty near the Swan Belltower and meander north east to vineyards for wine tasting in the Swan Valley.

Visit the South Perth Zoo which is 10 minutes walk from the Swan River. Peak hour commuters use Swan River ferries to cruise home fast to distant ports of the Swan River without stress of traffic jams. Functions held on Swan River cruises include Perth weddings, birthday parties, Christmas parties, hen's night, wine tastings, business meetings, family reunions  etc. The Swan River is broad at "Perth Waters" but I remember before the Narrows bridge / Mitchell Freeway ramps were built, the Swan River edged right up to Mounts Bay Road. A number of Swan River charter boats take group bookings for Swan River cruises. Others boats have scheduled Swan River cruises.
