These trips are for Advanced open water divers only. depth may vary from 10m to 35m. all divers will be required to be confident with SMB deployment prior to the trip. Naitilus lifelines are highly recommended. The diving is amazing and the scenery if just as good. steaming along looking up at 200m high  cliffs and going for a dive 10 minutes later! Matnta Rays cuiseing the shallows, schools of Tuna, untouched dive sites!

The main difference for these trips to the normal Abrohos liveaboards is the lack of shelter during the day. It will not be rough just not as calm as the Abrolhos.

Dive the Abrolhos Islands


Scuba Dive the Abrolhos Islands The Abrolhos Islands and their surrounding coral reef communities form one of Western Australia's unique marine areas.

The Abrolhos Islands lie about 60 kilometres west of Geraldton, on the Western Australian coast, and consist of 122 islands clustered into three main groups: the Wallabi Group, Easter Group and Pelsaert Group, which extend from north to south across 100 kilometres of ocean.

Lying in the stream of Western Australia's warm, southward-flowing Leeuwin Current, the marine environment surrounding the Abrolhos is a meeting place for tropical and temperate sealife.

The Southern Image is the only dedicated dive boat at the Abrolhos islands. Great food, tank racks to ensure the gear is safe, camera tubs, Run by divers for divers.

The Montebello Islands are one of the Pilbara's great frontiers.

Comprised of 174 islands in the archipelago, the Monte Bello's are located 80 miles off the coast of Onslow or 120 miles from Exmouth. The islands are home to a relatively unspoiled coral reef (largely protected by sanctuary zones) ensuring large numbers of fish life and pristine corals. With 147 islands there are numerous white sand beaches and tranquil bays. Even if you don't want to dive all day you can relax and spend it on the water in your own little bay.

Trimouille Island was used as a weapons testing area in the 1950's. Three nuclear weapons were detonated on the island, sinking the HMAS Plym (1300tonne) that was anchored in the bay in 12m of water. Not much is left of the wreck as it is largely destroyed. The Islands are safe from fallout as long as we only visit the island and don't stay on them.

  In 2022 went to the MonteBello islands to start running dive trips there. We performed a exploration trip but the water was not clean enough to run dive charters there and give the level of diving we wish to offer. It was a amazing place to visit with great islands and anchorages but not one we can predict good visibility( it would have struggled to get past 5m ).
