Our Story

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

Free Lesson

Anyone Can Learn

We firmly believe this is one of our strongest qualities. Even if you have never sailed or paddled before, Funcat's friendly and experienced staff will have you out on the water in no time. After some basic tuition and demonstration you will be out sailing on the beautiful swan river before you know it.

This is inclusive in the cost of the hire and doesn't cut into your hire time!

With our stand-up paddle board and kayaks, we recommend booking online, but we are also happy to take phone bookings on the day you want to hire. We don’t accept phone/email bookings in advance.
