Gorgeous afternoon on the water
Booked our tickets as a family so two adults and two children aged 7 and 10. We all absolutely enjoyed ourselves. We saw so many dolphins- including a mother and baby- it was hard to know where to point the camera! The crew were very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend this cruise to others.

Lots of Dolphins!
We booked the tickets online and glad we chose the Adventure cruise.

The tour was conducted for 1.5 hr and was well organised/fun. We had being to so many dolphins in Australia to (Sydney, Gold Cruise) and this is the only cruise that we get so closed and saw so many beautiful dolphins. Highly recommended!

We took visiting friends on the Dolphin Adventure Cruise and it has been an amazing experience. I know that Mandurah Cruises offer a wide selection of cruises but this one is by far our favorite (we're locals and go on their boats regularly). The staff in the shop were very friendly (even though it was very busy at the time) and the cruise itself was pretty amazing . We saw heaps of dolphins, skipper Heidi took us as close the dolphins as possible and tourguide Robyn shared all her knowledge on the dolphins. Already looking forward to visit again.

Brilliant cruise
Sep 2018 • Couples
We went on a rainy afternoon for the 1 1/2 hour cruise and did not hold out much hope of seeing any dolphins. Reece the Captain was great and he told us they would do their best to find dolphins for us and he was true to his word. Seeing two dolphins swimming and jumping alongside the boat at speed was a joy to see and we saw more dolphins later on although this time it appeared they were feeding. Well worth going on the cruise, dolphins aside, the speed of the boat and doughnuts will bring a smile to your face! Our cruise more than made up for the rain that day.
