‘A unique tour … it’s hard to imagine a more intriguing encounter with the watery part of the world.’

- The Age

As morning and evening breaks over the Port of Fremantle you’re invited to hop on a boat to encounter the sights and sounds of the area from the people who live and work there. Inspired by the maritime signal of five short blasts to indicate uncertainty, this journey takes audiences out on small quiet boats to listen, to navigate the unknown and to discover new ways of seeing.
