We took the 11am one hour boat cruise up Yardie Creek. Boxy, the boat driver and tour operator, was great. Very knowledgeable and full of interesting facts and snippets gleaned from a life time at Exmouth. I would highly recommend this trip.

Yes it would be safe for an 18 month old child, you have to drive out to Yardie creek, I not sure what the child price was but adults were $35.00 each
