Madfish Charters can take you on an Eco-tour that will give you an overview of all that is to see in this area. We can take you on a great bird-watching tour, a tour of native flora and fauna sites, or give you a look at some of the sites that highlight our rich indigenous and cultural history. A part of the edge of Wilson Inlet also forms part of the world-famous Bibbulmun Track.
The inlet has a surface area of 48 square kilometres and closes seasonally. It’s 14 km long from east to west, and about 4 km wide. A sand bar isolates the estuary from the Southern Ocean for about half of the year. And we have reptiles too! There’s the Spotted Brown Snake, and Eastern Tiger Snake can be found here. During our eco tours, wherever you look, in the forest, underwater, in the air, the trees, there’s something fantastic to experience!
River cruises are an absolute feature of Madfish Charters. Three rivers flow into Wilson Inlet, Little River, the Denmark River and Hay River. Through these rivers you can view some of the most beautiful corners of this classic environment. The rivers are alive with bird and fish life, bordered by rich vegetation and contain many stories about our current and past cultural heritage. Some rivers are inaccessible in certain times of the year due to water depth and flow.
Madfish Charters can be used for scientific research tours. The Iona V is a very stable boat capable of taking a research group and a significant amount of equipment to any area of Wilson’s Inlet.
