Day 1 Beagle Bay, One Arm Point & Buccaneer Archipelago

he Dampier Peninsula is an extraordinary blend of pristine beaches and dramatic coastlines, rich in traditional Aboriginal culture. Travelling up the red 4WD track, learn about the region’s fascinating history from our guided commentary. Our first stop is the Beagle Bay Aboriginal Community, home of the Beagle Bay Church with its glimmering pearl shell altar, for morning tea. Soon we arrive at the One Arm Point Community, perched on the tip of the Dampier Peninsula, to visit the Community’s aquaculture hatchery, complete with barramundi, pearl and trochus shell.
 
After a hatchery tour join Kevin, our local guide from the Ejai family, traditional owners of Jackson Island, at the family’s beach ‘bali’. Enjoy a picnic lunch while Kevin shares the traditions, lifestyle and culture of his family. After lunch we head for the remote Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm. In 1946 Dean Brown skippered a rickety wooden lugger into an unknown frontier to discover this hidden paradise: his descendants continue to operate what is now the oldest Pearl Farm in Australia. Embark an extraordinary cruise through the Islands of the Giant Tides to experience the remarkable tidal flows of King Sound.
 
As dusk approaches we head for our private Safari Camp, exclusive to our travellers. (LD)

Day 2 Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm, Kooljaman & Cape Leveque

Return to the pearl farm to gain an insight into this remote pearling industry on the Farm Tour, concluding with an in-depth pearl grading and appreciation session that will leave you feeling like a pearl expert! Come mid morning, we travel across the peninsula to beautiful Kooljaman at Cape Leveque.
 
You may like to discover the rugged red cliffs for which the area is famous or take one of the lovely walks. Alternatively you may prefer to enjoy a swim off the pristine beach.
 
Driving back through the dusk, keep an eye out for wildlife before arriving at your accommodation at approximately 6.00pm. (BL)
