Overview
For a quick day trip from Perth, head out on this scenic dolphin-watching cruise to the Mandurah estuary. Just an hour’s drive from the city, this area is teeming with wildlife including wild dolphins and a number of different bird species. This 1-hour cruise includes time in the Creery Wetlands and scenic canals.
What to Expect
Arrive at your boat in Mandurah to begin your one hour tour of the waterway. Take a scenic ride through the Ocean Marina to spot some incredible luxury homes before heading out to Peel Inlet and the estuary.
These shallow waters are the perfect place to view dolphins playing, eating, and resting in their natural habitat. Look upwards to spot some of the 130 bird species that also reside in the Creery Wetlands. Learn about all the wildlife in the area from your guide while enjoying the relaxing cruise.
Enjoy an extra half hour of cruising for the noon and 1pm departures with a stop at a local fish and chip shop—not included in the price of the tour.

Relaxing cruise with clear commentary

We hopped on a tour on New Year's Day which turned out to be perfect choice. Staff were quick to point out the playful dolphins and other interesting sights. The background music was light and relaxing and boat was busy but not overcrowded.More
