Steeped in rich maritime history, the Houtman Abrolhos (most commonly referred to as the Abrolhos Islands) is an archipelago chain consisting of 122 coral cays. Located approximately 80 kilometres west of Geraldton, the Abrolhos Islands is made up of three island groups, the Wallabi Group, Easter Group and Pelsaert Group.
A diver’s paradise, the famous 1629 wreck of the Dutch ship Batavia lies in shallow, clear water on Morning Reef. The murderous mutiny that took place following the wreck allows for a fascinating history, and with the shipwreck lying in only four to six metres of water with excellent visibility, the dive spot is perfect for people of all diving abilities. The watery grave of the Zeewijk also rests nearby.
Sailing on the Super Yacht Paradise will allow you to traverse the impossibly clear, sparkling waters of the archipelago. Abundant with native wildlife, it is one of the world’s most important seabird breeding sites and is the centre of Western Australia’s largest single species fishery, the western rock lobster. The islands are home to other intriguing wildlife such as the Australian sea lion, bottlenose dolphin, sampson fish and even whales.
The Abrolhos Islands provides some of the best snorkelling, diving and deep sea fishing in the world, thanks to the astonishing total of 389 species of fish that have been recorded from the islands. Guests on-board the Super Yacht Paradise can also dabble in spear fishing, surfing and game fishing in this truly unique marine wonderland.
With no tourists permitted to stay on the islands overnight, the Abrolhos Islands truly is an exclusive and far-flung destination that the Super Yacht Paradise can deliver you to in five-star style and elegance.
