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.

This is a great tour for kids; it's only 1 hour so they don't get bored, & for a short stretch of creek there are lots of things for them to see. Ash was a great tour guide: funny, informative, but informal. We don't normally like organised tours, but this one got the thumbs up

This is a great outing while you are visiting exmouth. It's a fair drive but when you are driving through stunning scenery it's hardly a chore. The Roos, emus and echidnas help pass the time! Book in advance in school holidays...just pop into the visitor centre in exmouth. Some people turned up without a booking and the boat was full.... More
