Whether you're a seasoned diver or a newcomer to the ocean, Desroches Island can become your playground. With 14 kilometres (8.7 miles) of beaches to explore, your ocean adventure can begin on land and continue far out into the Indian Ocean with the help of our team of dive instructors, fishing guides and marine educators.

Desroches Island really is a special place. I love seeing guests' faces when I take them snorkelling and they realize there's just as much to discover under the water as there is on land!
