Your Taste of the Bays
a delicious, dreamy day
IN THE SOUTH WEST
Just imagine. You are in the lush Margaret River region of Australia’s South West. A place filled with breathtaking scenery and the most exquisite-tasting gems from nature’s pantry.
You are on a pleasure boat, cruising on calm, turquoise water. Sipping a cocktail. Bubbles and fine Margaret River wines. Chilled local beers. Your own private chef and crew.
You are dining on fresh seafood and produce, locally grown. Gourmet cuisine, served in a unique 7-part feast with friends.
Imagine floating, or taking a dip in a secluded bay. The simple serenity of relaxing on a deck, surrounded by the most magical views. Then a colourful sunset finale.
It sounds so special – because it is. Welcome on board the South West’s new Taste of the Bays Cruise.
A Unique Taste of WA
The South West on a plate. Cruise with us to be served a very special taste of this iconic region’s very best. All in a way that is totally relaxed. Just like a private dinner party.

Arrive via a complimentary (optional) coach transfer from one of several local towns, to the tour departure point at Quindalup, located between Dunsborough and Busselton. The 3.5 to 4-hour voyage then begins with a short transfer on a tender boat to our main 60-ft cruise boat, Reel Affair II.
Enjoy a welcome gin cocktail as you step on board, followed by the first of 7 lovingly prepared courses. Breathe in fresh South West air and absorb the region’s most idyllic scenery, as you relax on the upper sun lounge deck or lower main deck.
We slowly cruise the coastline of Geographe Bay to see well-known beaches, bays and landmarks. Courses are served along the way, as we take in views of Old Dunsborough, Curtis Bay, Castle Rock, Meelup Beach, Point Picquet, Eagle Bay and Bunker Bay.*
Created by a private chef on deck, the menu features West Coast Rock Oysters, Mandurah Blue Swimmer Crab, line-caught local fish (such as Dhufish), Abrolhos Island Sea Scallops, Blue Ridge Manjimup Marron, Southern Forests Black Truffle, Yallingup cheeses and woodfired breads, Margaret River nougat and chocolate, and more. View our full Menu here.
Each course is carefully matched with Margaret River wines, selected personally by the winemaker at Howard Park Wines. Your choice of premium beverages are served throughout the cruise, including still and sparkling wines, locally-brewed boutique beers and cider, plus imported beers, non-alcoholic beverages and soft drinks.
While nestled in a tranquil bay, you can choose to dip your toes in, swim, snorkel or relax on float mats. Or simply enjoy the picture-perfect view on deck.
Anchored close to shore, we transition to seated, white-tablecloth dining for main courses. To finish, Mother Nature presents you with a magical South West sunset, observed from this exclusive setting on the water.
