Yardie Creek Boat Tours
A one-hour boat cruise along the protected waters of Yardie Creek is an ideal, relaxing and leisurely way to experience the spectacular colours and beauty of this rugged gorge. Learn what makes Yardie Creek special with experienced local guides who will point out the unique array of wildlife living in the gorge - including the rare black-footed rock- wallaby, numerous birds and their nesting sites and a surprising variety of marine life. We offer you an enjoyable, safe and eco-friendly tour with easy boarding access, comfortable seating and shade. Why not incorporate the Yardie Creek Boat Tour into your day on the west side of the North West Cape - a great thing to do! For those without their own transport to get to Yardie Creek, we also offer the YCBT Bus Transfer Service (for an additional fee). If you feel like spending a few hours at the magnificent Turquoise Bay beach to swim/snorkel or relax & don't have your own vehicle, why not use our beach drop off & pick up service - the Turquoise Bay Beach Service operates on a seasonal basis and bookings are essential - a cost efficient & easy way to get to one of the best beaches in the world.
We offer daily boat tours on the protected waters of Yardie Creek aboard our purpose built vessel "Yardi", that offers a safe, comfortable & well shaded journey within the Yardie Gorge - great for all ages and an ideal way to experience this special part of the world with local, experienced guides who are passionate & knowledgeable about the location and environment. We also offer a bus transfer service to Yardie Creek, in our well appointed Mini-bus or a beach drop off service to the beautiful Turquoise Bay beach.
Bookings are recommended for all services, due to the distance to travel from Exmouth to Yardie Creek (approximately a 90 minute drive).
Yardie Creek is an approximate 90 minute drive from the township of Exmouth, Western Australia. It is a sealed road all the way to Yardie Creek, we recommend that you pick up an Exmouth Town Map from the Exmouth Visitors Centre to assist with directions. Please also take care when driving in the Cape Range National Park and abide by the 80km speed limit, as there is often wildlife on/near the roads (eg. Roo's, echidnas, snakes & wedge tail eagles, to name a few!).
