A disappointing tour from Perth to Fremantle by boat.

Having already done the tour with the same company from Fremantle to Perth, I was looking forward to doing the reverse journey. However this boat was much inferior to the James Stirling I had experienced the day before, with virtually no outside seating (3 seats...More
