As you cruise along, your guide will provide interesting commentary on the history of the area, back to when only the aboriginal people lived here. Despite its rather foreboding appearance, the land around Yardie Creek supports a wide variety of wildlife. Birds are abundant and red kangaroos are also commonly spotted along the shore.

    After cruising Yardie Creek, you will next drive to gorgeous Turquoise Bay, perhaps the most picturesque beach in Western Australia, and pause for photos before returning to the pier.

  • Coral Fantasy By Glass-Bottom Boat

    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a picturesque drive, much of it along the coast of the Cape Range National Park.

You can expect to see parrotfish, angelfish and damselfish.

    The reef is made up of 250 species of coral, including staghorn, cabbage and plate coral. Ningaloo is a fringe reef, not a barrier reef, meaning it is closer to shore with shallow water between the two, so it’s easy to snorkel.
