I visited these islands some 20 years ago. As far as I am aware, there were (are?) no 'tours' as such, although you may be able to arrange private charter vessels. East and West Wallabi Islands are historically important, and it was amazing to sail by Morning Reef (the site of the wreck of the Batavia). Diving is not much,... More

Lifetime memories and amazing dives for experienced divers amongst enormous bodies encrusted with hard and soft corals. Massive schools of huge Spanish mackerel, coral trout, lionfish, sharks, nudibrances, crayfish, angelfish, clown fish and anemones. Image Dive was the company we went to the islands with for a four night live aboard. All food and air fills included. Luke and Paul... More

Simply the Best! Just returned from a 5 day charter to the Abrolhos Islands aboard the "Eco Abrolhos". The owners Jay and Geoff along with all the crew are easy going and do everything to ensure a fun filled, laid back, truly memorable adventure. The boat, the amenities and the full service bar are first rate. Having a beer, watching... More

We loved our fabulous cruise around the Abrolhos Islands, such an unspoilt tourism experience. Very comfortable ensuited cabins with well appointed saloon and dining areas. Chef Don did a great job with fresh product from the sea which we helped to catch! Staff were attentive and offered great WA hospitality and friendliness. Good to learn of the Dutch history and...

Great fishing trip with some excellent snorkelling spots (dive if you can), caught more than our fill of dhufish, bald chin groper and spangled emperor and stuffed ourselves on crayfish. Combined with the story of the Batavia shipwreck it was also a very interesting trip. The staff were laid-back and friendly and the chef was superb.

What a spectacular trip! We left from Geraldton and following a comfortable trip aboard the Eco Abrolhos we arrived at our first of many stops. The islands are remote and unspoilt, offering an opportunity to absolutely switch off and unwind. Over the course of the 5 days we had the opportunity to fish with a high certainty of catching a...

Just finished an amazing 5 day cruise to the Abrolhos islands on the Eco Abrolhos. What a wonderful experience to be able to see how the fishers live. The crew were very friendly and had a lot of information, which was thoroughly appreciated. Special thanks to Don, the cook. The food was fantastic. The highlight for me was visiting Beacon... More

Just completed a 5 day cruise with Jay and Sonia and their fabulous crew. Nothing was too much trouble and it's nice when crew interact as friends. The food was excellent and far beyond expectation including freshly caught fish and crayfish every day. Our room (with en-suite) was very comfortable. Fishing was incredible and snorkelling marvellous. The informative visits to... More

We had a group of 8 great mates and 4 new friends celebrate my 50th birthday on an amazing adventure fishing on the Abrolhos. The Mills Charter boys, Shaun, Paddy, Royce and Mark all looked after us like family. The fishing and the spots visited will be memories for ever, all the guys were saying we should have been doing... More
