Ash took us up the creek in his small boat and we saw lots of wildlife including lots of wonderful Rock Wallabies,Osprey and Rays. Ash was an informative and funny guide whose personality and extensive local knowledge really added to the enjoyment of the trip. Would definitely recommend and the drive round to Yardie Creek is beautiful.

OK its a bit expensive but for 1 and half hours I think it was worth it. Ash our boatman was amazing - he didnt stop talking the whole time BUT everything he said was interesting. He was also funny. We say rock wallabies, sting rays, ospreys, Myrtle the Turtle and fantastic rocks. We also did the walk - you... More

Thanks for your review & feedback - just a reminder you can also book direct with us as owner/operators on 0499 20 29 20, or the Exmouth/Ningaloo Visitors Centre in town (9949 1176)...it is a long drive out to Yardie Creek from Exmouth (87kms), so it is wise to book ahead to confirm details etc. We do also welcome "walk-ons"...

Our tour guide was Ash, his knowledge of the area was only surpassed by the natural beauty of the creek. The wildlife seen on the cliff faces an DC in the water was brilliant. A must do experience.

Just do the walk you will probably see more half an hour trying to spot a stingray. The boat can't go far up, you do see rock wallabies etc. And the guide was entertaining but $70 per couple is too expensive.
