Wild Seafood Experience

Fresh Mandurah lobster, catch-and-dine lunch cruise

Fresh from Mandurah’s ocean, to plate

Catch and dine on ocean-fresh delights aboard our interactive seafood lunch cruise.

Nothing tastes better than fresh seafood – especially when you catch it yourself and someone cooks it for you! Our unforgettable Wild Seafood Experience is a seafood lunch cruise with a difference. Catch, learn, indulge and enjoy!

Western Rock Lobster (or ‘crayfish’, as it is commonly known in Australia) is most a delicious delicacy of our local ocean. Mandurah has a 100-year history as a seafood centre in Western Australia. It is home to an abundance of crabs, lobsters, crayfish and many other mouthwatering delicacies.

Your seafood lunch cruise will be cooked while exploring Mandurah’s beautiful canals and waterways. You might spot wild dolphins at play, plus pelicans, ospreys and other fascinating birdlife. We then anchor up on Fairbridge bank where main courses are served.
