After morning tea you will visit the sea turtle sanctuary where you can observe turtles feeding and surfacing for air.

    the tour was absolutely amazing. what an experience! all staff was super friendly and helpful especially Sierra was taking care of me i fell behind most of time as im not very good at snorkelling. bring warm clothes with you! when you come out of water after snorkelling it is colder than you think actually even though it was 22 degree especially if its windy and overcast.

  • The Pinnacles: Desert Sunset and Star-Gazing Tour from Perth

    2. The Pinnacles: Desert Sunset and Star-Gazing Tour from Perth

    Discover the magic of the Pinnacles Desert on a 9-hour guided tour. Head west to the Turquoise Coast and keep an eye out for native wildlife. Stop in Lancelin for a walk along the beach. Experience the thrill of sandboarding down giant sand dunes. Board the bus and visit Ngilgen Lookout to see seasonal wildflowers and admire views over the Indian Ocean. Go for a guided walk on the beach at Hangover Bay to see native plants that were used by the Aborigines for food and medicine when they lived off the land. Enjoy dinner at the Observation Deck in the Pinnacles Desert, accompanied by a glass of Margaret River wine. See the sunset over the Indian Ocean and later marvel at the stars with the help of Astro binoculars and a telescope.  See the Rings of Saturn through the telescope and photograph the moon by attaching your smartphone to the telescope.

    Big day out! Gavin was fantastic. Pinnacles and star gazing was magnificent, we’re so lucky to have such a clear night!

  • Perth: Pinnacle Desert Sunset and Stargazing with Dinner

    3. Perth: Pinnacle Desert Sunset and Stargazing with Dinner

    Heading north away from the city towards Yanchep National Park, you will make a quick comfort stop which will provide an opportunity to see the koalas and kangaroos. From here you will go up the coast towards the magical Pinnacle Desert to view the mystical limestone rock formations.

Experience the moon-like landscape come to life as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean and the moon rises. Once darkness falls, you will head to the fishing town of Cervantes for your included dinner in a traditional Western Australian tavern to soak up a real Australian atmosphere. Following dinner, you will head out into the night to experience the star-filled night sky. You will head back into the Pinnacle Desert to the observation deck to experience the tranquillity of the national park, and view the nig...

    A most enjoyable trip to see the wonders of the Pinnacle Desert. The only disappointing part was when we went star gazing, the clouds moved in and consequently no stars. Can't blame the tourist operator for that.

We had a wonderful day spotting lots of sea life that we didn't expect to see, including whales, dolphins, turtles, countless fish and even spotted a tiger shark, leopard shark and reef sharks (thankfully from the safety of the boat). The crew were lovely and knowledgeable, and the lunch was delicious! Highly recommend!
