I had a great trip, lots of information and staff.

The trip was good, we got to see lots of dolphins and the friendly staff made the experience better. Explaining everything about the sites and what we are looking at. The boat was clean and very tidy, it would have to be one of the best tourist companies I have used. Thank you.

Hopped on the boat at 10am. Almost immediately seen dolphins drove around mandurah and went spotting.

Was a great fun morning out. The captain and the tour guide helping us spot dolphins the entire time. Also had lots of fun learning about mandurah. We saw lots of dolphins everyone on the boat seemed to have a great time 🐬 ☺️ will definitely make sure I do this again!

Unfortunately only saw two dolphins. The power fir the microphone was omit working but Tracey did a good job keeping the lower deck informed of what we were seeing.

An enjoyable trip. A good experience for my overseas guest even though there was a lack of dolphins. The staff were very courteous and friendly. We appreciated the ability to order fish and chips to have during the cruise as well as being able to have an alcoholic drink.
