Join us onboard Kalbarri’s only River Cruise on the Murchison, listening to entertaining and informative commentary about the fishing industry, history and flora & fauna of the area as you cruise leisurely up the lower reaches of the river, witnessing the beautiful open spaces and river scenery.
Enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the Murchison River on this Kalbarri Wilderness Cruise. Your experience begins when you board the vessel and receive a brief safety speech and introduction. Once you set off you will follow the channel upriver with full commentary along the way. You will move at a leisurely pace, there is no rush and there’s a lot to see. The lower reaches are home to a number of species of birdlife including Ospreys, Kites, Pelicans, Egrets, Australian Shell Ducks, Black Swans and our local White Breasted Sea Eagles, so you will need to keep your eyes peeled, and with the river sometimes getting as low as 40 mm deep, ou might even see with mullet jumping, small fish and crabs.
At the turnaround point, you might have a little time to pull up to the shore and take a stroll along the riverbank, where Emus, Kangaroos and Goats are often seen, then on the return journey, you will have plenty of time to relax, take photos and enjoy your environment. Your cruise comes to an end at the Murchison River Mouth, one of WA’s most treacherous, where you can't help but be impressed as you watch the water move through the channel and boats come and go.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
