Fabulous skipper who told us about the pearling operations on our way out to the tidal waterfall. Ben was able to answer all our questions in detail & offered to take photos of us & the waterfall. A great experience! Don’t miss it!

Fantastic tour to get an overview of cygnet bay pearling industry and how it works. Then the fun starts with a couple of hrs cruising around observing the incredible tides, whirlpools and waterfalls. Highly recommend!!

It was a much better experience than I was expecting. Enjoyed the tidal flows and the waterfall reef. Fantastic.
