Very popular hour long cruise cruise around the Marina, through the canals and upstream to the new traffic bridge. A recorded commentary was played as you passed through the Canals which explained the history of the area. We received bonus on our cruise with sightings of several pods of dolphins

Very friendly staff, lovely wines. So it was a pity about the food. We had the grilled fish and chips, I think they got the food at Ninos. It was awful, very fishy soggy chips. It was still a lovely night, beautiful views from up top and nice breeze, (bring a jacket, I was glad I did). Would do this... More

I and my group had boarded Mandurah Cruises in last September. We hope to see a dolphin, but unfortunately not even a single dolphin appear. Affordable to board cruise, quite worth it. Good staff throughout the trip.

Hello pelus0na, Thank you for your Trip Advisor review! We are unhappy to hear you did not enjoy your cruise or fish and chip lunch. As the dolphins are wild and we do not bait them therefore cannot guarantee them however as there are over 80 dolphins that live in the waterways it is uncommon not to see one. We... More

Been there twice. First time for watching dolphins, second for Christmas lights. We enjoyed both times, but I personally more like dolphins watching. One time in life it is more than enough to see Christmas lights. It is hard to get tickets for Christmas lights watching so if you want you should buy them before.

The Christmas lights canal tour was a great experience for the whole family. Extended family ranging from great grandparent to 1yo went on the smaller cruise boat which had 24 people onboard. It is not an in-depth tour, more a boat ride that showcased some superb Christmas lights and really built up to the best 'streets' in the canals. Once... More

Went just before Xmas. Nice crowd on boat, seemed full but once gets going people love around and lots of room. Played Xmas tunes, Santa on waterside. Took 2.5 yr old grandson and he didn't get bored at all.

Slow tour around the canal properties, but we wanted to see Dolphins. Does not go out to open sea at all. We did eventually see a couple at the end. They don't guarantee sightings of course, but this is really about how the other half live.
