Choose your Christmas Lights Cruise Boat

Would you rather tour Mandurah’s Christmas Lights with Rudolph or Blitzen? Our faithful BBQ Boats Rudolph and Blitzen are equally fabulous at guiding us through the canals at night, and they each take nine guests, so if you’re coming with friends be sure to book the same boat so you can cruise together.


We depart from the Stingray Point Jetty, behind The Sebel Mandurah, on Vivaldi Drive.

Please arrive 20 minutes early as the Christmas Lights Cruise will start promptly.
