      Highly recommend this cruise.
      Highly recommend. Lots of dolphins and the stuff were knowledgeable and accomodating. It was nice they let everyone move about the boat for different views and it was just the right length of time.

      Highly recommended!
      I booked the day before for my daughter and I. A well organised cruise/tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it and saw approximately 10 dolphins, including two playful ones jumping alongside the boat which had everyone excited. Commentary was very good and informative. We enjoyed being able to move around the boat freely and my daughter loved the having the opportunity to use the kid's captain wheel and binoculars. We are looking forward to doing this again soon.

      Pleasantly Surprised
      We did this cruise at the suggestion of our friends and were pleasantly surprised at the extent of the tour and the commentary was exceptional. Saw a very quick flash of a dolphin’s tail but that’s nature. Thank you or a lovely afternoon.

      Wow! Beat cruise offered by Sea West .
       We were truly spoilt with 2.5 hours of breath taking scenery and Dolphin's galore who put in extra appearances along our journey. It was fantastic to see a new mother with her baby calf. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise with Captain Francis and 2IC Emily. They were so very kind, helpful and informative. A very helpful lady, rearranging our cruise from Tuesday 2nd April to Saturday 6th April so that we could take advantage of viewing the Giant Troll on the water as well as Dolphins. Ask for the 2 hour Giant & Dolphin Cruise.

      We didnt quite make it this time as they had engine problems so the cruise was postponed by the company who offered everyone a full refund or an alternative cruise on another day. Good on the. We have cruised a few times before.There was still a big que even on a Thursday in March. It was a warm day and UNFORTUNATELY there is NO SHADE . The Council should do something as it was BOILING and NOT suitable for our climate

      Mixed experience
      We didn't have too much luck with dolphins (if I'm ever back in Australia, I can come back for a free re-try though, per the satisfaction policy), but we got to see a lot of birds such as osprey! The waterways are very interesting, I would have loved to have more time out at the nature section at the end. I had booked the 11:30 cruise because I wanted the fish and chips option, but I learned on the boat that you have to book that ahead of time - I guess maybe by calling them if you book through Tripadvisor? (If you check their direct website, you can see the information there). But I also learned that I could just go to the fish and chips place (next to the boat dock) and get my own order afterwards, which is what I did.

      Holiday cruise
      This is a really excellant cruise. Everything taken care of. If the weather is a little rough tge pots are in shallower water. Having a go at lifting a pot is great to see what you are catching to eat. The food on board is out if this world. Goid drink on board too. The crew are very good no issue is a problem. In my mind value for money

      Amazing
      We did the Christmas lights canal cruise and it was so worth it! Houses are gorgeous and the boat itself is lovely and a very relaxing ride. Around an hour drive from Perth and if I go back to Perth this is the first thing I would do

      Mandural Christmas Light Cruise 2023
      We did a family Christmas light show in early December. The cruise itself was ok- well managed, clean toilets and on time. However only about 25% of the houses had lights on so it was quite disappointing to spend that time and money to see so few houses all lit up. I would not recommend it either for toddler aged children who want to run around as there are no barriers to stop the kids from falling in.

    My wife and I did the Wednesday trip and found the small number of fellow travelers (12) just great. Good value for money with great staff looking after all our needs. Nice lunch with morning tea and afternoon tea provided ,just a great way to spend the day sitting back and watching the dolphins swim past and traveling up the Murray was just terrific. The stop over and walk to Coppers mill was okay but after fighting the Mozzies , we both agreed next time we would stay on board and just enjoy the river and watch the bird life.

    Great, thanks Roger. I am so glad you enjoyed our Murray River Lunch Cruises. Sorry about the mozzies, I believe the Shire have been spraying the estuary so I hope soon they are diminished.

    Top score: What a great day out. Highly recommend the lunch cruise. The boat was not over crowded, allowing you to just relax and view the sights.

    Staff were very welcoming. Cruising along the canals, the staff explained some of the sights and history. We slowed down to observe the many dolphins we were lucky enough to see.

    Tea, coffee and biscuits were provided, morning snack of cheese and biscuits and lunch was all superb. I would highly recommend this cruise, you will not be disappointed.

    What a pleasant day leisurely cruising the estuary and Murray river, for four and a half hours. You could sit either on the higher or lower levels of the boat, both with good views. There were points of interest told to us over a speaker system and some history of the area, as well as having the wildlife pointed out. We saw plenty of birdlife and also the beautiful dolphins .
    The crew were very friendly and helpful. They served up a delicious cold lunch selection on board when we were cruising the river area, and the Buffet was served both upstairs and downstairs.
    Only one small complaint was that the music upstairs was a bit too loud with 6 speakers at head height up there! Downstairs it was much quieter!
    People with walkers and wheelchairs were able to board easily, but you needed to be ambulant to use the toilet facility.

    Had a wonderful day with the Mandurah cruises luncheon trip
    We are locals but had a friend here from Sydney .
    The whole experience was amazing .
    The Crew were
    Friendly Engaging and knowledgeable and really came across as enjoying their job.
    The lunch was great.
    We were so fortunate to experience a large pod of Dolphins joining the trip across the Estuary .
    A stop at Coopers Mill was interesting History and the journey up the Murray while enjoying lunch was very relaxing.
    Would certainly recommend this as a special day trip
