Exploring the Abrolhos Islands…
• Bird watching
• Beach combing
• Diving and Snorkelling on the abundant sheltered reefs.
• Windsurfing and surfing.
• Fishing for dinner.
We supply all your catering, ice, tanks, weights and belts, air fills. The Abrolhos is an escape from everyday life –just you and nature. Surrounded by the richness of nature, and simplicity of living, the experience at the Abrolhos is unique and limitless.
Of the masses of islands that span alongside Australia’s continental shelf, the closest is 55 kilometres due west from Geraldton. The mysterious and beautiful Abrolhos islands are clustered into three main groups – The Wallabi Group, The Easter Group and The Southern or Pelsaert Group.
All but three of the islands are coral atolls formed over the millennia by the growth and break down of many species of coral. The existence of the warm Leeuwin current continues to carry with it a cargo of coral larvae and other marine life from as far north as Indonesia. This current maintains water temperatures at around 22 degrees, enabling corals and bright, colourful tropical fish species to thrive.
The isolation and freedom the Abrolhos provides is unimaginable. Explore a coral atoll surrounded by nothing other than the sound of birdlife in the wind and the tide washing over the broken corals.
Reef Prince is a 38m custom-built, fully air conditioned,large stable catamaran. The advanced catamaran design ensures very quiet operation, spacious interior with phenomenal stability.
