Day 1: Beagle Bay, Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm & Buccaneer Archipelago
 
The Dampier Peninsula is an extraordinary blend of stunning coastline and indigenous culture. Travelling up the red 4WD track, learn about the region's fascinating history by guided commentary. Your first stop is for morning tea at the Beagle Bay Aboriginal Community, home of the Beagle Bay Church and its glimmering pearl shell altar.
 
By mid-morning, arrive at One Arm Point (also known as Ardyaloon) home of the Bardi-Jawi people, an indigenous community perched on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula, and visit the Community’s aquaculture hatchery for barramundi, pearl and trochus shell. We’ll also visit Kevin and Donna, traditional owners from One Arm Point who will tell us about their history and life on the peninsula as they make us a traditional sand cooked damper to enjoy with our picnic lunch. After lunch arrive at Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm to enjoy a pearl appreciation tour and then embark on an extraordinary cruise through the Islands of the Giant Tides.
 
In the evening, you'll reach the remote private safari camp, exclusive to our travellers and nestled on the beach overlooking the bay. In this stunning location, you can swim, explore the mangroves or go for a walk in the dunes to find some old pearlers graves: truly a privileged experience. (Lunch, Dinner)
 
Day 2: Kooljaman, Cape Leveque & Broome
 
Travel back to Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm by boat to undertake a tour of Australia’s oldest pearl farm. Learn about this fascinating history from local guides descended from the very first pearlers. From here, you'll soon reach Kooljaman at Cape Leveque, where you may like to swim on the Eastern beach, take one of the lovely walks over the Cape itself or alternatively you might choose to go for a wander along the Western beach where famous red sandstone cliffs tower above the white sand providing some of the most famous images of this area.
 
Driving back to Broome through the afternoon, keep an eye out for wildlife before arriving back in town at approximately 6.00 pm. Your trip ends upon arrival. (Breakfast, Lunch)
