Dive the Mackerel Islands, Western Australia
The waters off the Mackerel Islands boast a spectacular art gallery. Located just north of Ningaloo Reef and Exmouth Gulf, a dive playground awaits for those who seek to discover new aquatic frontiers. New dive sites are being discovered all the time and most of the marine life here has never come into contact with a human being.
Whether you’re a scuba pro, a reef rambler, seaside whale watcher or you prefer to drift along with a snorkel, the Mackerel Islands is marine life at its most beautiful.
Our ‘house’ reefs, easily accessible from our beachfront cabins, offer some great snorkelling for those wishing to explore sites close to shore. Low tides are common and make for a tranquil, enjoyable reef adventure while friends and family watch from their cabin’s outdoor entertaining area. A mask and snorkel gives kids unlimited entry to admire the action.
Diving around the waters of the Mackerel Islands is an optical feast for any scuba enthusiast. Endless seascapes abound, the hypnotic lure of sea life drifts and rolls like your own private showing of a marine movie. Thevenard Island is the main base, with all the essential facilities required for excellent dive expeditions.
