Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Funcats is one of Perth’s iconic must do activities and one of the few places in the world where you can sail directly in front of a major city. With no experience necessary, there is no better way to enjoy our picturesque city than a relaxing sail on the beautiful Swan River. The fleet includes 40 catamarans, stand up paddleboards and kayaks. Catch the ferry across to South Perth and walk along the foreshore for eight minutes. No bookings required and a free lesson is included for those who haven’t sailed or paddled before. Please be aware that Funcats closes for the winter months

My hubby and I had an awesome sunny afternoon on the river we hired the twin sail catamaran and had heaps of fun hooning up and down the river, you can really get some speed up, I loved it and before we leave WA we are want to do it again! Excellent value for money a fun afternoon event I now want to buy a sail boat

Thanks for the great review Rebecca. I recall you and your husband coming down for a sail and I'm delighted you had a good time. We love seeing people enjoy the boats and our beautiful Swan River!

I liked this place and was sailing 4x in my holiday week in Perth. You can sail with a steady wind with fantastic views to the skyline of Perth and the Kings Park.
The staff of Funcat was really friendly and helpful (especially the woman - I forgot her name :-)
The renting was quick and easygoing.
Thanks - I definitely come back!

Thanks for the fantastic review. We are very lucky having staff who love helping people enjoy their day out on the water. The lady in the office is Jane, she does a great job of keeping Funcats running (mostly!) smoothly and looking after everyone's gear.
