Overview

Head out on a wildlife adventure with this breathtaking cruise tour in Mandurah as you get up close with the region incredible marine life, and especially the way-too-adorable-to-be-true Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins.

Travelling by a 1400hp safari vessel called the Spirit of Adventure, you will get to see the amazing dolphins up close as they show off their cheeky nature – playing and diving through the water around you. Mandurah is home to the largest residential population of Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins in Western Australia and you can experience this abundance in all its glory on this tour. The region’s wetlands are internationally recognised as some of the best in the world in terms of marine biodiversity, so you can be sure to spot some amazing marine birds including pelicans and ospreys. In fact, if you visit October and March, you can even spot rare North Asian migratory birds. Accompanying you all along will be an immersive life commentary from our expert guide who has tons of knowledge on the region’s dolphins and other wildlife. 

The tour takes a lovely route, letting us cross the gigantic Peel-Harvey Estuary, the largest in Western Australia’s South-West and about twice the size of the Sydney Harbour, as well as cruise through the Dawesville Cut, a man-made channel between the Peel-Harvey Estuary and the Indian Ocean - getting you a cruise that is not just adventurous but equally scenic with a spectacular coastline to feast your eyes on! Don’t forget to avail a complimentary 10% discount at their Gift Shop on-board, filled souvenirs and locally-made goods.
