This cruise was one of the best experience we've had at Monkey Mia. It was suppose to be a 2.5h trip but it lasted 3h. We saw dugongs, eagle rays, dolphins, baby dolphins, sea turtles. The skipper was very enthusiastic and would answer any questions you had. The morning trip also included a pearl farm stopover which was very educational... More

The landscape was rugged and beautiful. The sunset view at the various vantage points was simply stunning... Makes this place a peaceful and wonderful retreat to R&R. There were also attractions such as Shell Beach and the dolphins at Monkey Mia to keep the kids entertained. Well worth the 10hrs drive from Perth!

Kids liked the drive. The sea... More

It is so beautiful. There are many different and amazing beaches to visit along the Shark Bay. It is important to travel around prepared because there is no many shopping around to find food or drinks.

There are that many beautiful things to see it is quite likely that you could miss something. Shark Bay is a long way from anywhere so do not miss anything. your homework before you go. We had the benefit of a relative who knew the area well.

Fantastic trip around Shark Bay with a visit to the Blue Lagoon pearl farm, we saw turtles, Dolphins, dugongs and sharks, the 2 guys piloting Aristocat 2 were very obliging and entertaining with many passengers enjoying a ride in the boom nets when returning to the shore. This is a must if you are visiting Monkey Mia. Do not miss... More
