Sail Boat Hire (Catamaran hire) on the Swan River, Perth

I was looking for something to do with my two boys on a Sunday afternoon and thought I’d check out the South Perth surf cat hire.

Wasn’t sure what to expect though after returning to the shore I wish we had done it earlier! With a nice southerly wind blowing it made some great fun cutting across the swan river.

The boys had a fantastic time and I’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone else that is thinking of doing it.
