To showcase the scale and variety of vegetation and marine life found in Desroches, our interactive Discovery Centre takes pride of place adjacent to the Castaway Centre.
- An Edu-Vacation
With dedicated learning areas, you'll benefit from informative displays and 3D models of a Shearwater's nest and turtle hatchlings, as well as meet with our WiseOceans marine educators who are based here year round.

The fringing coral reefs and seagrass beds that surround Desroches are ideal for learning to snorkel and coming face-to-face with a variety of marine life. Join a marine educator from WiseOceans during an informative guided snorkel, no matter your snorkelling ability.Details
