Spotting one of the rarest dolphin species in the world was a treat, and the added bonus of seeing bottlenoses, turtles, baby sharks, dugongs and a dozen other creatures of the sea, means our morning cruise will stay with us forever. The guides are very conscious of the dolphins' welfare and are active in finding new ways to responsibly use... More

We went out with about 20 other people on a morning snubfin dolphin tour, with a hope of seeing turtles and dugongs as well. The captain, Cameron, gave us lots of interesting information about the ecology, the tides and currents, the history of the Roebuck Bay, etc -- but still, 2 hours in and we hadn't seen any animals. He... More

All you need to know is go and book and Snubfin dolpin tour, guaranteed not to disappoint. Cameron is an excellent operator and Emma is also very knowledgeable about the area. The service is top quality right from pick up to drop off. The boat is well presented and has plenty of options for seating, standing, laying on the net,... More

Was above all our expectations. We laid on the front and just soaked up the views of Roebuck Bay, the sea life and the whale watching experience was amazing. The crew were friendly, looked after everyone and provided refreshments. The all female crew was so knowlegable and very experienced in windy conditions. Very impressed.

The Eco tour surpassed our expectations. We sailed on a pristinely clean boat, offered refreshments and snacks. Cameron, the skipper, was so incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the marine life and the environment. We were so amazed to se a family of sub-nosed dolphins swimming and feeding around us. Whilst entertaining us, Cameron was very aware of not disturbing the... More

This was a really lovely cruise. The captain and crew (Emma) made us really welcome. The boat is not a large one, but is a lovely 42 ft Catamaran with plenty of space for those who wish to sit down. Though not on plush seats! It is what you would expect for such a cruise. Well equipped, and perfect for... More

The captain seemed to have lots of knowledge but did not use a microphone so only a couple of people standing close to him could hear anything, including the safety briefing. The boat is not equipped for passengers and there was not enough seating or shade for the 27 people on board. Emma, the crew, told me they usually take... More
