Summer in the south west is best enjoyed from the back of a boat. Preferably someone else’s boat, and definitely with a private chef handing you oysters.
Sunlight glints off my friend’s earrings and the scent of grilled barramundi wafts as we lounge, Riesling in hand on a vivid yellow float mat. We’re in eight metres of water off Meelup, water so clear you can see ripples in the sand at the bottom.
We’re aboard South West Cruises’ Taste of the Bays, a progressive dinner cruise aboard a customised 60ft sightseeing boat – where the star of the show is Western Australian seafood.
