Your skilled captain navigates smoothly through the hidden whirlpools, unmarked rocks and reefs caused by the largest tides in the Southern Hemisphere. The islands’ rocks are over two billion years old, still in pristine condition due to the isolation and minimal tourism of the area. Head towards Talbot Bay and see the majestic Horizontal Falls. When the 12-metre tide turns, strong currents rush through the two narrow coastal gorges, creating a cascading effect. Later, explore the stunning white sands at Silica Beach.
