Experience Western Australia's best kept secrete. A day on Dirk Hartog Island with Island Life Adventures.

It is Shark Bay's number one must do experience that combines marine life and island life to create an unforgettable adventure for all ages.

Jump aboard 100 percent Wild with their passionate local staff for a cruise across the waters of Shark Bay. Look out for dolphins, manta rays, turtles, sharks, whales and dugongs. Enjoy a barista-made coffee or herbal tea at Australia's best beach bar, the Inscription Bar and Cafe. Join a guided tour of the old shearing shed to discover the island’s pastoral history. A BBQ lunch with freshly made salads and daily baked bread. The afternoon adventures include a 4WD tour to the west side of the island to view the spectacular landscape and visit the Blow Holes and Surf Point marine sanctuary. For those who stay behind at Homestead Bay, take a walk along the beach, go for a paddle on a kayak or SUP board or just relax at the bar. The island produces its own gin, Inscription Gin. Discover the story behind the how the gin is made and the world heritage botanicals infused into the Dampier 1699 Gin and the Rose de Freycinet 1818 Pink Gin.

On your return trip to Denham, look out for marine life!
