A wild continental shelf

Under 500 people visit this otherworldly and enchanting coral landscape each year. Dive to see 233 species of coral and 688 species of fish that rarely can be found near the shore.

Heaven On Earth

Pinch yourself. Clear your regulator and count to ten. Yes, it’s real. The warm, crystal blue waters gently laps against your body as you relive what you’ve just seen. Giant Clams, Wrasse, a bazillion tropical fish of every shape and colour. Heaving yourself onboard the Ocean Dream’s tender, your smile says it all. Friends have the same bedazzled look. Clerke, Impérieuse and Mermaid Atolls are everything and more than what you had read about Rowley Shoals. As you motor back to the yacht to enjoy an aperitif before Chef’s evening creation, you pinch yourself again just to make sure. For here, 260km out in the middle of the Indian Ocean, you may have just discovered heaven on earth.

A beautifully pristine pin-drop in the Indian Ocean, unspoiled Rowley Shoals is a diving nirvana. The Shoals’ three atolls lie along the edge on one of the widest continental shelves in the world. The atolls have shallow lagoons that are teeming with marine life and with the shoals experiencing a huge tidal range, enchanting coral gardens are a feast for the eyes. Not only is Rowley Shoals home to over 688 species of fish, further out in the big blue, you’ll see marlin, sailfish, whales, turtles and dolphins. Then it’s time to pinch yourself again.
