Mandurah Ferry Cruises - (Mandurah WA, Australia)

The first weekend in Perth (Day 1 and Day 2), thanks to the sponsor for organising this Saturday's outing. Started at Mandurah, upon arrival, we leisurely walked around within the large nature surrounding area with a couple of eateries and retail outlets and when the rest of the friends arrived thereafter, we hopped into the boat for this one hour dolphin and scenic canal/lunch cruise.  

Indeed, a lovely late morning start as the boat cruised down the waters, for the first 15 minutes, there was no sight of the dolphins. Meanwhile we tucked into the fresh crispy batter coated fish and big batons of fried chips, sipped into the soft drinks, continued chatting and looked out of the boat to admire the tranquil view. Still, the dolphins were no where to be seen.   

Since I have been seating for the last 1/2 an hour, I felt restless and so, I went down to lower deck. At that moment, there they were - the dolphins emerged from the water, jumped, flipped and what not for the next 15 minutes. But soon, the excitement was over as they slowly swum deep down and away from boat while I continued standing as the cruise ship made a turn in front of the canal houses before returning to the starting point.

Getting down from the boat, we then journeyed to "Kings Park".

  1. Nothing more enjoyable than a calming, peaceful cruise, get to see and experience both land and water and have time to daydream and mull things. That 6th photo reminds me of the Taiping Lake Gardens way back in the past. Harks back to the good 'ole days minus the hustle and bustle.

  2. So beautiful. The water so clear over there. can even see the stone the bird standing on

  3. I love cruises...not many cruises available in malaysia for day trips.
