Vineyard tours are popular with tourists visiting Australia, but most of the country's wine regions don't offer cruises through wine country. However, in Perth, boats are a popular way for wine lovers to get from one vineyard to another.

Cruise and Sip Your Way Through the Swan Valley

When it comes to full-day wine-tasting cruises in Perth, guests have a plethora of options, depending on your preferences and budget. Whether you would prefer to have an utterly indulgent day or stick to a simpler itinerary, Everything Australia has the perfect tour for you. Keep reading to check out our top food and wine tasting tour recommendations.

Set sail on one of the Food and Wine Tours from Swan Valley Tours, a prominent tour operator in the region. The company offers two different wine tasting Perth trips: the Swan Valley Indulgence Cruise Tour and the Cruising the Swan Tour.

If you choose the Indulgence Cruise Tour, you will board the Captain Cook Cruises' River Queen boat at the Barrack Street Jetty in Perth. As the cruise departs, sit back and watch the city fade away while you sip on tea or coffee and delicious breakfast muffins.

As you float down the river, your wine experience begins with your first wine tasting, accompanied by a selection of local cheese. Take your time sipping the various flavours before the ship docks for your first vineyard tours at the Water's Edge Winery.

At this point, you will meet your Swan Valley tour guide, who will take you for tastings at two boutique wineries as well as two local microbreweries. Munch on a freshly prepared lunch at Homestead Brewery (with a drink included).

Your final stop will take you to the Margaret River Chocolate Company for a chocolate and truffle tasting. Don't forget to pick up some of these goodies to take home and share with your friends and family before boarding your coach back to the Perth CBD.

On the Cruising the Swan Tour, you will take a slightly different approach. In the morning, a coach will pick you up from your accommodation to take you to the scenic Swan Valley. On this trip, you will tour three boutique wineries and sample their finest wines. You will also have the opportunity to stop by the Margaret River Chocolate Company for some sweets.

After a delightful day of wine tasting, you will hop aboard a river cruise back to Perth. Enjoy the sunshine as you float back to the city while enjoying the open wine bar onboard.

Both of the trips from Swan Valley Tours offer complimentary photo service so that you can take home professional pictures from your big day out.

If you prefer more time on the river, you might enjoy Perth's Famous Wine Cruise. This full-day trip is the longest-running day tour in Perth and takes you to wine country and back aboard a Captain Cook Cruises ship. In between voyages, you will enjoy lots of delicious food and wine.

As your vessel begins to float down the Swan River slowly, your captain will share some background and history about the region. As you absorb the knowledge, you will be treated to an assortment of gourmet cheese and biscuits, paired with wine tastings from local Swan Valley vineyards.

From there, the boat will dock at Sandalford Estate, one of Western Australia's most prestigious wineries. The professional staff will give you a behind-the-scenes tour of the vineyards and wine-making facilities before you dive into a tasting of Sandalford's award-winning wines. Your wine flight includes samples of six premium wines, and you will receive a tasting booklet where you can record your tasting notes.

While you sip on your wine, the staff will begin to serve a delectable two-course lunch. The chefs change the menu seasonally but expect to find classic lunch dishes such as chicken, fish and pasta. You will also have your choice of wine served alongside your food.

Before you leave Sandalford Estate, you will have the opportunity to browse their souvenir shop to find gifts to take home for your loved ones - and cruise guests will receive an exclusive discount.

When you return to the boat, the crew will provide live entertainment for your journey back to Perth. While onboard, you can also take advantage of the complimentary local wines that will be served once again.
