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.

Yardie Creek is definitely a "bird-lovers" paradise - so many to spot & observe as you cruise along in "Yardi" - thanks for your great review & feedback - I'll make sure Ash see's this one! Cheers, YCBT

Had a great time cruising down the yardie with Boxy. He certainly knew his stuff. He pointed out all the animals along the way. We saw wallabies, lots of birds and their nests. Was very quiet and relaxing trip. Worth the drive.More

We did this boat cruise up the creek into the gorge. The guide was amazing. He could tell you where every bird or rock wallaby was. Very informative. Enjoyed the tour immensely.

Great Tour - well worth it - the tour operator was good enough to add an extra tour due to excessive school holiday period demand
