Description

Broome Sunset, Seafood & Pearling Cruise

A unique, all-in-one tour showcasing the best of Broome

Join us for a fully-inclusive afternoon and evening cruise on board our deluxe 69-ft triple-deck pleasure boat in Broome.

You’ll be treated to an exquisite 7-course menu of WA seafood and fresh local ingredients, prepared by a private chef on deck. Take in 360-degree views as you sip on premium beverages, served all-inclusive throughout the cruise.

We have proudly partnered with the oldest Australian owned and operated pearl farm, Cygnet Bay, to present Broome’s only pearl farm tour. We give you a firsthand experience of seeing a live onboard pearl harvest. Cygnet Bay is part of the world’s only sustainable wild pearl fishery, growing the purest and rarest pearls on earth. Carefully cultured over many years, Cygnet Bay’s world-class pearls are over a thousand times rarer than diamonds.

Our chef then prepares a delicacy of rare pearl meat for your indulgence. This marine bounty has a fresh and sweet taste, with a lovely texture. 

Your seafood feast continues as we cruise and anchor close to Cable Beach for seated dining. Be mesmerised by Broome’s famous golden sunset from this breathtaking vantage point.

The next day, visit Cygnet Bay’s headquarters in Broome’s central Chinatown to witness an exclusive grading of the harvested pearl by professional jewellers. See ceremonial Aboriginal ‘Riji’ carved pearl shell, or try on an old-style diver’s helmet!

Broome Cruises’ Sunset, Seafood & Pearling Cruise is a complete ‘best of Broome’ tour package ~ a breathtaking journey of the senses that is the only one of its kind in Australia.
