Stuart our guide was extremely knowledgeable and an expert in his field. Very passionate and he loves imparting the history of Broome and the pearling industry. I had no idea how important the Pearling industry was to Broome's development. Next time we will also do the Willie Creek Pearl Farm. Enjoyed the titbit of muscle meat as well.

Super friendly, informative and helpful staff! Took my 85 year old nanna on the camel as well and she was quite comfy and able to do it. Would definitely recommend this company - they were really great.

An incredible ride with stunning views. There was a stand to help everyone get on the camels and you got to feed them a carrot at the end.

A fantastic way to enjoy a sunset at Cable Beach. Was very relaxing.

Great view. Sound was a little distorted caused by wind.
