Take in the views, then continue to Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm. Take a tour of the farm, which provides insight into the remote pearling industry. After, take a swim in the infinity pool that looks over Cygnet Bay and head to an included group dinner to get to know your fellow travellers a little better.
