What to Expect

Join us for an all-inclusive afternoon and sunset cruise as we showcase the unique flavours and iconic coastal scenery of Western Australia’s amazing South West. This unforgettable cruise is a half-day, progressive dining experience, visiting a series of beautiful bays with courses served along the way – each celebrating the quality produce of this exceptional region. 

 

On arrival at the tour departure point at Quindalup, you will transfer out via tender boat to be welcomed aboard our 60ft deluxe charter boat, Reel Affair II with a gin cocktail. Breathe in fresh South West air and enjoy the ultimate vantage point of the region's most idyllic scenery as you relax on the upper sun lounge deck or lower main deck. Enjoy being hosted by our ultra-friendly, experienced crew who will provide expert commentary of the region.

 

We slowly cruise the coastline of Geographe Bay to see well-known beaches, bays and landmarks. Sip on premium beverages, served complimentary along the way, as we take in views of Old Dunsborough, Curtis Bay, Castle Rock, Meelup Beach, Point Picquet, Eagle Bay and Bunker Bay. Please note, the cruise route may vary due to weather conditions.

 

While you cruise, indulge in an exquisite 7-course degustation feast, crafted by a private onboard chef. Reflecting the best of the region, the gourmet menu features an array of delicious WA seafoods and fresh local ingredients the South West is renowned for. Each course is accompanied by paired wines from the winemaker at Howard Park Wines, Margaret River.

 

While nestled in a tranquil bay, you can choose to dip your toes in, swim, snorkel or float in the crystal clear waters, or simply relax on deck and keep a lookout for dolphins or seals at play. Anchored close to shore, we transition to seated, white-tablecloth dining for main courses. Top off your magical afternoon watching the sunset over Cape Naturaliste, with views of stunning cliff formations and the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse.

With advance notice, we can cater for gluten-free, dairy-free and non-seafood diets – please advise us of special dietary requirements in the notes section of your booking, to ensure you receive our Alternative Menu. At least 72 hours’ notice is required for any special requirements. Notification of food intolerances on the day is unlikely to be able to be accommodated, as logistics are planned well in advance.

Please be aware, as we are a boat with limited cooking facilities, we cannot vary the menu a great deal. If you do have particular dietary requirements, please call us so we can consult with our chef.

We cannot take bookings from guests with anaphylactic allergies, as given our small cooking environment onboard, we cannot guarantee an allergen-free environment.

This tour requires all guests (under supervision from the crew) to step from the beach or very shallow water onto a tender boat (about 30cm), and then from the tender onto the main boat, and so you must be mobile enough to do this. If you have any people in your group with special mobility requirements, please contact us to discuss if this tour is suitable, before booking.
