The best way to experience Cable Beach and the beautiful coast is by boat and our Willie Sunset Pearl Lugger Tours.
Departing: 02.30 pm
Returning: 06.30 pm
Duration: 4 hours
Willie Cruises and its experienced crew offers people the opportunity to experience the blue waters of Broome in Australia’s north west aboard ‘Willie’, the last operating pearl lugger in Australia. ‘Willie’, a 67’ Gaff Rig Schooner modelled on the designs of early 1900 pearl luggers was built to fish for mother of pearl shell Pinctada Maxima, the shell which put Broome on the map and shaped the history of the region as it is today.
Sailing between Roebuck Bay and the idyllic Cable Beach, ‘Willie’ allows you to see how a traditional gaff rigged sailing vessel operates with all sails heaved up manually just as our forefathers did, whilst taking in the beautiful sunset. With plenty of comfortable seating options aboard, anyone can enjoy the calm waters and natural beauty of the coastline surrounding Broome.
To make your cruise with us completely stress free we will pick you up in our courtesy bus from your location and give you a brief tour and history on route to the beach. Once there you will be able to kick off your shoes and feel the beautiful sand of Cable Beach, and wet your feet in the warm Indian Ocean as you make your way to our waiting tender which will transfer you to ‘Willie’.
You can completely relax hearing stories of the rich history and culture of the area, and enjoy the delightful complimentary food served by our crew and chilled beverages of your choice from our well stocked open deck bar. Our crew will happily point out the abundance of marine life from turtles, seas snakes, dolphins and the mighty humpback whale, to dugongs, manta rays and the plethora of pelagic fish – all in a day aboard Willie Cruises.
