Departing Broome and track across the Dampier Peninsula and overhead King Sound, home to Australia's largest tides and amongst the highest in the world. Overfly the Horizontal Waterfalls described by Sir David Attenborough as ‘the 8th Natural Wonder of the World.’ Fly across the stunning Buccaneer Archipelago, home to 1,000 islands made of Precambrian sandstone over 2 billion years old. Fly overhead Koolan and Cockatoo Island, home to the world's richest iron ore deposits. Landing at the Ardyaloon (One Arm Point) community, enjoy a refreshing swim at the beautiful Jologo Beach. Visit the Ardyaloon Trochus Hatchery and Aquaculture Centre for a guided tour with an experienced local guide. Enjoy a fascinating and educational tour of the Hatchery which contains a diverse range of fish, coral, and crustacean species whilst learning about the Bardi-Jawi people’s strong connection to their saltwater traditions and get up close and personal with some of the fish and coral species most prevalent in the area. We then take the short flight across to Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm where you will enjoy a Pearl Farm Appreciation Tour, giving visitors an insight into the fascinating history of pearling in Cygnet Bay and how they cultivate some of the most sought-after and beautiful pearls in the world. The knowledgeable tour guides will demonstrate a pearl harvest giving a glimpse into a fully operational pearl farm. The tour concludes with an in-depth pearl appreciation session that will leave you feeling like a pearl expert. Enjoy a delicious lunch and a quick swim in the on-site swimming pool before headng off on a sea safari boat tour to explore the ‘Giant Tides’** of the spectacular Kimberley Coast – an isolated and rugged coastline where tides of up to 12m push their way through the islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago off the tip of the Dampier Peninsula. Feel the power of the world’s largest tropical tides as you cruise amongst the giant whirlpools and standing tidal waves. Venture into Escape Passage, recently described by scientists as the fastest ocean currents in the world! After the sea safari, we then head back to the airstrip for a scenic flight to see the spectacular bays and beaches of the Dampier Peninsula, Beagle Bay, James Price Point, Willie Creek and Broome's world-famous Cable Beach as we track coastal southbound back to Broome.
