I made a mistake and booked the wrong day, but that was no problem and was told not to worry about it. It did not appear as if we would see dolphins (the purpose of the trip) but the skipper was determined and we were rewarded with a pod doing all the usual dolphin tricks at the very end of the trip. Mandurah looks so different from the water, well worth the trip. All the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Happy Granddaughter.

The Canal Cruise was excellent. We were lucky to see several dolphins which swam near the boat, much to the delight of the passengers! The fish and chips that we ordered were delivered very soon after we left the jetty and were delicious, and at a reasonable cost - a very thoughtful addition to the cruise. In addition, the seating was very comfortable, and the informative commentaries were very interesting to hear. Tea and coffee was also available and also toilet facilities. Everything was well organised, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended.

I took 9 year old twin granddaughters and they had an amazing time, so good in fact that I booked the Christmas lights tour as a gift for their family. They were thrilled that this would be their Christmas present and can't wait for it to come around. It was a perfect day, we only saw one dolphin but they were so excited by it. Thank you for an very special experience.
