Boat Hire in Perth

From sailing the Swan River to relaxing on Rottnest Island, Perth boat hire is never a bad idea. With white sandy beaches, clear blue skies and access to some of the most spectacular reefs on the planet, Perth knows how turn on that Western Australia magic without even really trying.

One of the sunniest cities in the world also happens to be one of the most relaxed. Perth combines the best of modern city life – the parks, the restaurants, the bars and the cafes – with a laidback coastal charm you can feel from its beautiful beaches, bays and nearby islands.

It’s no wonder boat rental in Perth is a popular choice for families and groups looking to celebrate any event on the water. Whether it’s a half-day boat hire in Fremantle (bring your fish and chips on board!) or a trip out to Rottnest Island or Carnac Island for the day, Floatspace has personalised options for all budgets and group sizes.

Boat hire prices in Perth vary depending on the size of your group, the size of the boat and whether you choose to add on catering and drinks packages or just BYO your own food and beverages (which majority of people do).

For small boat hire in Perth, you might pay from $395 per hour for up to 30 guests aboard a fantastic catamaran like West End. Great for bucks parties, hens parties and birthdays, this two-level boat has a BBQ and eskies on board, plus inflatable rings so you can float around those clear waters of Rottnest Island and Carnac Island. A great-value option compared to on-land venue hire for parties and events.

For party boat hire in Perth catering to larger groups of more than 40 guests, you’re looking at prices from $435 per hour on CETO – a boat with a top-notch sound system, state-of-the-art lighting and room for a DJ and up to 50 guests.

Going even bigger? With room for up to 100 guests, Marine 1 starts from $705 an hour. This twin-deck floating venue is just made for epic birthday parties and corporate events – it has DJ booths, a deep bottom deck dance floor, cosy upper level lounges and weatherproof side clears. Party boat charters in Perth don’t come better than this.

Things to do in Perth by boat

The Swan River (Derbarl Yerrigan in the local Noongar language) is a sparkling jewel that makes Perth shine even brighter. View the Perth city skyline while sailing the Swan River, taking in stunning views of icons like the Bell Tower, Kings Park, the Swan Brewery and the Royal Perth Yacht Club. If you get in early enough, New Year’s Eve boat hire gives you the best views of Perth’s famous fireworks.

Want to go further upstream? Swan Valley cruises are great if you feel like sailing up to your wineries without anyone in your group needing to be the designated driver.

For watersports activities in Perth, you’ll find plenty of opportunities for surfing, paddleboarding, kayaking, kitesurfing and jet skiing around Perth. Favourite spots for swimming, surfing and snorkelling include Cottesloe Beach, Trigg Beach and Scarborough Beach.

Hire a private boat from Fremantle Harbour (or “Freo” as locals know it) for longer adventures out to Rottnest, Carnac and Garden Islands. Rottnest Island is the perfect weekend or school holiday getaway – not just thanks to those ridiculously cute quokkas. “Rotto” has soft-sand beaches, walking trails like the Wadjemup Bidi, and local wildlife including up to 50 shorebird species, approximately 400 species of fish, bottlenose dolphins, humpback whales, New Zealand Fur Seals and Australia sea lions.

If you have more time on your hands, you might want to book a boat for a trip up to Ningaloo Reef to meet the local whale sharks, or even further up to the Kimberley to explore the most pristine, rugged landscapes on earth.

Whatever event or trip on the water you want to have, Floatspace’s boats will make it one to remember. View all of our boats in Western Australia below - or enquire with Floatspace if you have any questions.
