Starting from $25
Hire a Kayak and explore the beautiful Swan River at your own pace. There is nothing more tranquil than skimming quietly across the water not disturbing the natural wildlife. Often seen while Kayaking on the Swan River are dolphins, the famous black swans and pelicans.
Funcats Watersports was founded in 1975 as a School Sailing business and we have been committed to customer satisfaction ever since.
Over the years, the business grew in size and popularity and has become the largest catamaran hire business in Australia. Today we offer a range of options for both Locals and Tourists.
Our business has become an iconic part of South Perth and it is not uncommon to have the entire fleet of 40 catamarans sailing on the Swan River in front of the city.
We do our best to ensure a wide selection of options to suit everyone. and in more recent times Funcats has introduced both stand up paddle boards (SUPs) and kayaks into the hire fleet.
Funcats really does have something for everyone! We hope to see you soon
Do I need to book?
For anything less than 3 catamarans there is no need for you to book. For the kayaks and stand up paddleboards we recommend booking online as we do not have as many of these crafts. Book online here
Which payment methods do you accept?
We accept all major credit and debit cards, and cash.
Do you offer gift cards?
Yes, we do! Give the gift of an experience on the river with a funcats gift voucher, you can either buy one on the website here or drop down and visit us at the river to pick one up!
At what age is it safe to take children on a catamaran?
5 years old is the youngest age we will allow children on the catamarans. If you wish to take young children on a catamaran we suggest that you discuss this with us on the day. Many factors such as sailing experience, how windy it is, and the conditions on the day very much influence the advice we give to hirers.
