There are between 75 and 100 bottlenose dolphins in the Mandurah waters who are very friendly and are often seen playing alongside the boat. Whilst there is a very good chance you will see dolphins, they are wild animals and sightings cannot be guaranteed.

Just completed day tour to Orchard Tour and Fruit Picking plus Dolphin Cruise Tour. It is a very satisfying tour, everything is well taken care of. We spend some good time at the Core Cider House, nice place to visit to, special experience for us. We tested a few fruits and also had a wonderful lunch, after that travel to Mandurah, and the scenery was beautiful, went to the stunning view beach before we went for Dolphin cruise. As we having two more tours with explore tour perth, we are very looking forward for it!
