Full description

Cruise across the flooded fault line where the ancient Kimberley Rock begins and witness the visual spectacle of the Buccaneer Archipelago. Your tour departs from Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm on an amphibious sea vessel.

Transfer to the tour vessel, a 12-seater rib with twin 250-horsepower engines, ideally suited for the tides in the area. The highlight of this tour is the emergence of a reef with a cascading waterfall on outgoing tides.

Cruise through the pearl farm and along Joligo Beach to One Arm Point. Marvel at the islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago that come into view.

The Kimberley’s extraordinary geological past becomes apparent at Pearl Passage. This is a fault line on the edge of the Canning Basin, running all the way down to the Pilbara. 

With turquoise blue water and white sand beaches largely untouched by human interference, the region around Cygnet Bay is considered one of the most beautiful locations in all of Australia.

Extend your stay for a night or longer and experience life on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula with a million-star view.
