The Buccaneer Archipelago is a group of more than 800 islands off the coast of Western Australia near the town of Derby in the Kimberley region. The archipelago covers over 50sqkm (19 sq miles) and is located between King Sound and Collier Bay near Yampi Sound. The shorelines of these rarely visited isles include mangrove estuaries, secluded bays, untouched beaches, cliffs, headlands, reefs, rugged gorges, and whirlpools. This area is known for its extreme tidal conditions-ranging up to 30 feet in places.
The archipelago was named in 1820 after the English buccaneer and privateer William Dampier, who charted the area in 1688.
