This was the most exciting trip in a boat. The skipper was entertaining and was a great host. You are kept entertained for the whole trip. He knew a great lot of history of the area. The walk over the sand dunes was great. Morning tea (lemon cake made by his mum) was very nice with a cuppa tea. I would recommend this trip to all ages.

Wow is right!
You would think just cruising on the beautiful Walpole and Nornalup inlets would be enough but the funny and informative narrative from Gary Muir on the natural and human features of the area was excellent and so was the Lemon Madeira cake for morning tea. When in Walpole , do the cruise.

If you are anywhere in the deep south west of WA and you don't do the WOW wilderness tour you have missed the most unique, entertaining and educational experiences. What really tops this tour off and makes this tour an unbelievable experience is the owner and operator Gary Muir. You could do this tour a dozen times and still be laughing and learning something every time. I highly recommend this tour as something you must do at least once in your travels around this beautiful country.
