Cruise across the flooded fault line where the ancient Kimberley Rock begins and witness the visual spectacular of the thousand Islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago.
The 2 hour Island Explorer Tours depart from the land base at Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm on our amphibious Sealegs vessels. Guests are transferred to their tour vessel, a 12 seater rib with twin 250hp engines, ideally suited for the tides of the area.
Cruising through the pearl farm and along Joligo Beach to One Arm Point, the islands of the Buccaneer Archipelago come into view. The Kimberley’s extraordinary geological past becomes apparent at Pearl Passage, a fault line on the edge of the Canning Basin which runs all the way down to the Pilbara and separates the 300 million year old rock on the mainland from the true ancient Kimberley rock of the island, between 1.8 to 2.4 billion years old.
This neap tide experience traverses the intertidal zones of the beautiful and the deserted ‘thousand islands’ which make up the Buccaneer Archipelago.
