Full description
Depart on a thrilling 1.5-hour wildlife watching journey aboard a supercharged vessel, the Spirit of Adventure. Enjoy guaranteed wild dolphin sightings in their natural habitat, all just an hour from Perth city center, with an accredited and licensed dolphin watching company.

Set sail in the calm waters of Mandurah’s Mandjar Bay and head out via the Port Mandurah Canals, lined with magnificent homes to the Creery Wetlands teeming with birdlife including pelicans, osprey and cormorants. From May to October migration occurs, with sighting of birds from as far as Russia recorded.

At any time on the cruise, keep an eye and watch for dolphins. Mandurah has a resident population of around 130 Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins, feeding and playing in the waterways. They may even surf the wake of the boat, something they enjoy doing on the Spirit of Adventure.

While onboard, take the chance to learn about the dolphins, the unique marine environment and the regions history from well-informed tour guides.

Once you pass Boundary Island the fun begins; here the captain steps up the speed, cross the vast Peel Inlet, twice the size of Sydney Harbor, and the largest estuary system in South Western Australia

Continue through the Dawesville Cut, a purpose built man-made channel, between the Peel-Harvey Estuary and the Indian Ocean. From here the Captain will step up the speed again for a thrilling and adventurous ride in the rugged Indian Ocean waters, bringing you safely back to the Mandurah town centre.
