The Rowley Shoals - the "bucket list" dive experience
Greetings from sunny Broome! We hope this finds you well and enjoying a great year so far, and a lovely start to Spring.
We're already beginning to wind up our wilderness adventure cruises along the Kimberley Coast for the season and before we know it we'll be heading west again, to visit the breathtaking underwater jewel of the Kimberley, the Rowley Shoals.
In Sydney during the Australian Tourism Exchange this year we heard from many international diving tour organisers who all agreed the Rowley Shoals is a dream destination for diving fanatics worldwide. It continues to be highly protected by the Department of Environment and Conservation, and as there are only a few tour operators allowed access to the Rowley Shoals, it is a highly sought after dive destination.
These three coral atolls lying west of Broome are home to a mesmerizing 688 species of fish and 233 varieties of coral. With visibility between 40-60 metres, warm tropical waters, and variety of dive environments including sheer walls, caves, lagoons, drift channels and spectacular coral gardens, the Rowley Shoals are a true paradise for snorkelers and divers alike.
The short season runs between the end of October and the start of December each year, and we have 3 dive and snorkel adventures in our 2011 season schedule.

Specially scheduled dive & snorkel adventure... bring the kids!
This year The Great Escape Charter Company welcomes all children to the Rowley Shoals for a specially scheduled family dive and snorkel adventure.
In addition to the stunning sites for children to snorkel at, a swag of other fun activities are planned for children including skurfing, boat bombies, fishing, and visiting the stunning white sands of Bedwell Island. You can be sure there will be plenty of additional entertainment onboard from the fun and friendly crew, and on-screen entertainment with kids movies in the evening. After that the adults get the run of the boat!
