What to Expect
Board your cruise boat and watch as Perth’s skyline glides by on the way out. Snap unobstructed photos of the city’s highlights from the deck of the boat, and enjoy a morning muffin and hot beverage. Before you disembark to an air-conditioned coach, enjoy your first tasting experience of local wine, cheese, and crackers. Focus on the Swan Valley’s picturesque scenery and listen to commentary from your guide as you make your way to tastings at local wineries and breweries. Once you reach Homestead Brewery, sit down for lunch accompanied by a glass of beer, wine, cider, or soft drink (you can relax, knowing you have a designated driver). Finish with a visit to the Margaret River Chocolate Company, to taste chocolates and truffles, and the Providore next door to shop for some produce and souvenirs. End with convenient drop-off back at your Perth, Guildford, or Burswood hotel.

We booked through an agent rather than directly on-line with Capt Cook cruises. Mistake, because when they cancelled our cruise, they didn’t (couldn’t) let us know. But we turned up at the Perth pier a day early just to check where to go, and were told tomorrow is cancelled -
