Mandurah Cruises Go Plastic Free

Mandurah Cruises have gone PLASTIC FREE and encourage you to get on board a plastic free lifestyle to help keep it out of the ocean and create a safer environment for our dolphins and other wildlife. We are refusing single use plastics by changing to recycled paper bags and calico bags in our gift shop, offering reusable cups on board our vessels, removing straws, changing to bamboo cutlery and recyclable cardboard trays on our daily lunch cruises, putting recycle bins in our office and vessels.

Why is plastic such a problem? 300 million tons of plastic is produced every year, half of which is for single use. More than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans every year and scientists predict there will be more tonnes of plastic than tonnes of fish by 2050! These plastics are designed to last forever, they don’t break down, rather they break up and become permanent pollution that our wildlife will consume or become entangled in. Our crew are regularly scooping up plastic bags from the water which are one of the most dangerous items to our marine life as they looked like jellyfish in the water – a common food source for a large array of marine life.

Mandurah’s Dolphins

Mandurah has a healthy population of Bottle Nose Dolphins (tusiops truncatus) that is estimated to number up to 75 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!
