Yardie Creek wildlife
The diversity of wildlife living along the rock-face is what makes the creek so special and such a joy for photographers to shoot. Cute little rock wallaby's, menacing western osprey's and elegant eastern egrets all find a home along the creeks walls.

Welcome to Yardie Creek Boat Tours (YCBT) and Turquoise Bay Beach Service (TBBS), we invite you to join one of our boat tours for a relaxing, informative & eco-friendly cruise along Yardie Creek or if you don’t have your own transport while in Exmouth, we can drop you off at Turquoise Bay to enjoy the stunning beach!

Our boat cruises depart from the Yardie Creek jetty, situated within the Cape Range National Park in Exmouth, Western Australia. Board our safe, comfortable and well-shaded vessel “Yardi” for a one (1) hour boat cruise along the creek and learn some interesting things about the local region, the unique flora & fauna, local history and our beautiful environment…a great experience for all age groups.

We recognise and acknowledge Baiyungu, Thalanyji and Yinigurdira people as the traditional owners of Cape Range National Park.

What a great tour. Ash was so knowledgeable but also funny and retaining. He showed us so much beauty up and down the creek - a real Flora and Fauna eye opener 😲😲😲

Highlight of our time in Exmouth!A couple minutes with Boxy is more informative than a trip to the museum. We thought we were just going for a scenic cruise but we got so much more! Honestly felt like a tour of his home - he’s so passionate and knowledgeable about the area and has so much to share.

Ash is a character and is great fun. We enjoyed the time on the boat and could spot heaps of wild birds and wallabies. It is really well priced, I highly recommend this tour!The tour is a well-oiled machine and is guaranteed to please 👍
