Amendment To Ferry Routes

Route changes in effect during April, May & until June 25

Due to construction related river closures for the Optus Stadium, the daily ferry service is temporarily closed and replaced with a special Swan River Cruise tour.

The river channel running under the Matagarup Bridge, adjacent to Optus Stadium, will be closed during the most part of April, May & June. The construction of the bridge is in its final stages and this incorporates a lot of activity on the water with heavy lifting cranes and barges. As a result, there will be no access to Claisebrook Cove during this period.

In light of these developments, we are introducing a special Swan River Cruise tour over April and May to replace our regular ferry service, which will head up to the bridge construction and take in some of the fascinating construction works with some insightful commentary from our trusty skippers.

Our morning and afternoon tea cruises will also divert to On The Point and the Barmah Café (Tony and his crew are great hosts!)

In other news..!

As of June we will not only resume services to Claisebrook Cove but will be including the new Jetty at Optus Stadium on our regular ferry run. It's an exciting time to be living in Perth!
