Be whisked back in time to an era of courageous men who lived a life of danger and fortune on our tour of pearl luggers in Broome. Discover over one hundred years of history and let us share with you the tale of ‘The Sea, The Men, The Legend’ on Pearling’s doorstep, Roebuck Bay, Chinatown, Broome. It is often said that Broome’s pearling industry is as rich in culture as it is in pearls. Join us as we reveal the impact pearling has had upon Northern Australia and how the melting pot of cultures enticed by the lure of the pearl influenced Broome.

Surround yourself by a vast collection of original diving artifacts in our private air-conditioned museum then at your leisure view an exquisite selection of Broome pearl jewellery featuring the Australian South Sea Keshi Pearl in the Pearl Luggers jewellery showroom.

Pearl shell meat
As a part of your tour we treat you to a very special ‘delicacy of the deep’ – Pearl Shell Meat. A rare and expensive delicacy, pearl shell meat comes from the pearl producing Pinctada Maxima oyster. It has a subtle flavour with a soft but firm texture. It currently retails in Broome for $120 per kilo and graces the menu of very few restaurants. Enjoy a complimentary taste of this delicacy from the deep when you join a Pearl Luggers tour in Broome.
