Our dolphins are very friendly and are often seen playing in the wake of our vessels as we cruise by the award winning Mandurah Ocean Marina and glide past the Venetian Canals. Marvel at the luxury canal homes right beside you, and see the world renowned Ramsar* listed Creery Wetlands and their abundant birdlife – all brought to life by our informative Captain’s commentary.

Mandurah’s Dolphins

Mandurah has a healthy population of bottlenose dolphins (tusiops truncatus) that is estimated to number between 75 - 100 individuals, depending on the time of year. The number increases around mating times when males come in and join the pods. The pods of dolphins average around 10-15 and have sometimes been seen to be as large as 25 down to solitary dolphins or smaller family groups of 3-4.

Their average length is about 3 metres, with calves being about 1 metre long at birth. We normally see baby dolphins appear between December and April. Mandurah's wild dolphins are medium grey in colour with light flanks and pale bellies. They can live up to 30 years and can swim in short bursts up to 40km/h and they love to play in our ferries bow waves and wash. As a matter of fact dolphins are the only other mammals apart from humans that continue to play well into their adult life. And Mandurah's wild dolphins are very playful!
