This is a gorgeous wildlife tour, taking in the full extent of the Mandurah’s pristine estuary and ocean - with dolphin watching guaranteed or you travel again for free. Mandurah is a lucky place. It is built on the biggest inland waterway - the Peel Inlet in SW Australia. This ecosystem is a wildlife lover’s dream. Because the waterways are protected, they are healthy and host huge populations of native crab and fish. This in turn attracts diverse and rare bird species, and means the waters are home to about 120 resident dolphins - the biggest resident population in Western Australia. This population is completely wild, and healthy. Our expert crew know where the dolphins live, and in turn the dolphins are unthreatened by our respectful interactions, and so will frequently engage with the boat. The remote nature of the vast estuary, and its wildlife means you could be hundreds of miles from anywhere, although wa quick, exciting trip back on the ocean delivers you back to the start.
