Overview

We are a family owned and operated houseboat hire business which operates in the Mandurah region of Western Australia. Explore the magnificent waterways of the Peel Inlet, Harvey Estuary and the Murray River onboard a fully equipped houseboat. The waterways abound with blue manna crabs, dolphins and waterbirds and the gentle, meandering Murray River is idyllic for a holiday of a lifetime.
