My Experience on Desroches

Incredible natural beauty & protected marine life

Desroches Island is a luxurious private resort situated in the Amirante Archipelago in the far outer reaches of the Seychelles, a cluster of remote coral atolls, 230km southwest of Mahé (the main island of the Seychelles). The Amirantes are regarded as some of the most pristine, untouched islands in the world.

Desroches is a truly remote destination of incredible natural beauty with miles of soft, sandy beaches, lush tropical forests and a pristine and vibrant marine ecosystem offering world-class fly-fishing, not to mention a wide range of other superb water and land based activities.

Considered to be one of the last true paradises on Earth, Desroches Island is blessed with a prolific abundance of marine life and exquisite coral reefs and is committed to protecting the unique fauna and flora of the area with ongoing research, rehabilitation and monitoring programs, focusing especially on nesting sea turtles, giant tortoises, sensitive marine habitats and forest rehabilitation.

A variety of excellent fly-fishing locations & opportunities

Desroches offers exclusive access to Poivre and is ideally located in close proximity. These atolls are recognised as some of the most pristine and untouched islands in the world and are blessed with an exceptional array of pelagic and reef fish species. This undisturbed paradise offers fantastic, onshore fly-fishing opportunities for catching Bonefish and Permit, making it a must-visit, world-class fly-fishing destination.

Desroches Island is surrounded by reef edges, immaculate beaches, sandy points and on the low tide shallow flats comprised of turtle grass, sand and coral. There are some great spots, which depend on the time of year, wind direction, tidal movements and bait proximity.

Also home to the most incredible variety of blue water fish species such as Sailfish, Dogtooth Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna and Wahoo, making it a great destination for offshore fly-fishing.

Experience a great sense of space, both indoors and out, with ocean views from your patio or deck and unblemished beaches just a few paces away.

There is no malaria in the Seychelles and no vaccines are required when visiting. Desroches Island has no cyclones (sheltered and predictable weather conditions), no poisonous snakes or spiders, no dangerous animals, no cars (no tar roads), no dangerous currents (all year round swimming and diving) and last but not least, no outsiders and unwanted visitors.

Experienced crew and purpose built boats

Our fly-fishing guides are all experienced professionals and have a comprehensive knowledge of the areas in which they operate. This together with the fact that they are continually looking for “new spots” makes them a very competent team to ensure not only a unique experience but also your safety.

Desroches has 2 purpose built 17ft Mitsi skiffs, all powered by 60hp Yamaha 2-stroke engines. They are perfect for accessing shallow flats areas and internally laid out with fly-fisherman in mind. There is a raised casting deck on the bow and an elevated poling platform on the stern.

Flyer is a 30ft walk around mono-hull, powered by twin 300hp Suzuki four stoke outboard engines. She is rigged with the latest Furuno technology for sounding and navigation coupled to radar and vhf radio type communications. The layout of this boat makes her extremely versatile for all kinds of fishing and ideal for doing the transfers to Poivre.
