Overview

Find out the secrets to creating some of the world's finest pearls on this family owned pearl farm 200km north of Broome: • Pearl Farm Tour (land-based) - discover the story of our pearl farm at Cygnet Bay and the life of the pearl from seeding through to harvest, and our beautiful pearl jewellery. This tour incorporates a walk around our land base. • Pearl Farm Patrol (land and water based) - in addition to your pearl farm tour, enjoy a 45 minute boat ride through the beautiful surroundings of our pearl farm, seeing the shell in their farm habitat and hopefully catching a glimpse of our hard-working pearling crew in action. Experience the world's largest tropical tides on our Kimberley Sea Safaris! During the spring tides cycle when the water movement is at its greatest our Giant Tides Tour takes in the spectacular tidal moves, with standing waves and whirlpools. During neap tides we offer the Kimberley Island Explorer, a slack water experience of this rugged and special land- and sea-scape. Our afternoon, or Last Light departures allow you to take in the seascape in the run up to sunset, with the changing colours of the Kimberley afternoon sky. On certain outgoing tides a spectacular coralline algae reef becomes exposed, creating a waterfall effect as the tide recedes. For Waterfall Reef dates please contact us! All Kimberley Sea Safaris are approximately 2 hours in duration, including transfer from our reception area on board our Sealegs amphibious vessels.
