Description

Just North of Ningaloo reef and Exmouth Gulf on the West Australian coast is a small group of ten islands called the Mackerel Islands. Accessible from Onslow or Learmonth, it is an undiscovered marine playground with new and unexplored dive sites simply waiting for those who venture in. With a new dive center on the main island of Thevenard it looks set to become the new frontier in Western Australian diving.

Thevenard Island is the main base offering excellent facilities for divers and snorkellers. Lying just 20 kms offshore from Onslow you can arrive by charter boat, charter aircraft or your own boat. New dive sites are being discovered all the time but the real fact is that most of the marine life has never come in touch with a human being. Be one of the first to discover and experience this amazing opportunity.
