Dampier Archipelago – 'North West Wonderland'

Discover the secrets of the magnificent Dampier Archipelago aboard 'Blue Marlin' 12 metre cruising vessel.

Let Skipper Brad, an enigmatic local operator take you on a memorable day out on the warm waters off the coast of Dampier to discover some of the 150 beaches surrounding the 42 islands that make up the archipelago. 

Hear historical facts as Skipper Brad points out places of interest including those visited by maritime explorers like the Pirate William Dampier and where he first stepped ashore.

Visit the islands where our early pioneers set up a sheep station, the first Australian pearling industry and the early Malus Island whale flensing beach.

Sail by the huge iron ore and LNG carriers docked against their immense loading facilities and infrastructure.  Watch the tugs in action.

Be taken back in time when you view the ancient rock petroglyphs.
