Then upon entering the winding Murray River, guests will be treated to stunning views of quaint canal homes and even more wildlife.

Whilist aboard, guests can enjoy either a delicious buffet lunch (Wednesdays only) or 2-course lunch at a waterside restaurant on the Murray River (Saturdays only) before cruising back to Mandurah. There's no better way to explore Mandurah's waterways!
