Discover the unique marine world that Mandurah is so famous for, on a 1 hr cruise through the city’s calm, inland waterways.
Enjoy the chance to spot playful wild dolphins as they feed, rest and play in their natural environment. Mandurah is home to Western Australia’s largest population of residential Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins – around 120 dolphins reside here! However, keep in mind that Mandurah’s dolphins are wild creatures viewed in their natural environment, so sightings aren't guaranteed.
Renowned for being one of Australia’s oldest fishing towns, Mandurah’s waterways produce some of the most highly prized seafood including the Western Rock Lobster. Watch as your tour guide showcases how to catch these iconic creatures and see them up close in the onboard live tank.
Explore more than 20 kilometres of the city’s illustrious canals, framed with luxurious homes. Then cruise into the region’s vast wetlands, protected by the United Nations as a natural site of worldwide importance. Here you can use the binoculars to look for pelicans, ospreys, black swans, cormorants and other water birds. Along the way, you will also see significant heritage-protected landmarks and important cultural sites that still stand today.
Live commentary is provided throughout the cruise by your knowledgeable tour guide and captain. If you have any questions about the unique marine environment and region, don't hesitate to ask them!
This tour is fun for the whole family! Kids can help the Captain 'drive' from the custom junior steering station at the front of the boat. Otherwise, simply sit back and relax as you take in the sights.
