Desroches Island is at the centre of a coral atoll and natural marine sanctuary blessed with flourishing marine life and multi coloured coral outcrops. Protected from commercial fishing practices and 230 km from Mahe-Seychelles, the isolated location of Desroches Island ensures that scuba divers can enjoy an aqua marine spectacle like no other. With over 18 classified dive sites to choose from and a vast amount of virgin reef still to be explored, Desroches Island is arguably the best place in the Seychelles for scuba diving. Forming part of the Amirantes outer islands (considered some of the most pristine and untouched islands in the world), Desroches Island offers a pure diving experience guaranteed to produce a wildly wonderful underwater paradise....
With the possibility to explore no less than 18 classified dive sites such as the amazing "Desroches Drop", "The Canyon", "Big Cave", "Airport Reef", "Secret Passage" and "Mini wall" to name only a few, divers can float in and out of mysterious labyrinths, unusual caves and columns which provide a host of unforgettable experiences, all in the company of a certified team of attentive professionals.
