“My Fremantle is the water. Our beaches are world-class and there’s always somewhere sweet to chill with a macchiato after!” - Will
Fremantle's location on the edge of the Indian Ocean and at the mouth of the Swan River (Derbal Yerrigan) means the connection to water is strong.
Boasting five beautiful beaches, plus the gateway to Rottnest Island / Wadjemup – just 25 minutes away by ferry – you can experience a variety of marine and water-based activities abound in the seaside city.
Learn to stand-up paddleboard, take a sunset cruise aboard a luxury catamaran or get your adrenaline fix with a jet boat experience at Fishing Boat Harbour.
Whale watching tours provide an up-close experience of the annual migration of Humpback and Southern Right whales along the Indian Ocean and serious deep-sea anglers can catch a prize snapper on a day-long fishing charter.
Dolphins, seals, rays and migratory birds are often sighted on a sunset or daytime cruise on the river or around the harbour. To really immerse yourself in the salty breeze, harness your inner sailor and take a sail on Fremantle’s very own 1850’s style tall ship the Leeuwin II.
