Diving in Broome, Western Australia

Broome is one of the remote but most beautiful places when it comes to diving. The place is remote, which means it is not overcrowded, and it offers one of the best diving experiences in Western Australia.

Unfortuantely there is not a heap of dive spots close to Broome, however if you venture out further you can enjoy the widest continental shelves in the world at Rowley Shoals Marine Park. 

There are three reefs that make up the Rowley Shoals which are the Mermaid Reef, Clerke Reef and the Imperieuse Reef. If you are an experienced diver, you can enjoy the Wreck of the Lively.

You will find 233 species of corals here with almost 68 different species of fish. This place is perfect for both novice and experienced divers with a view of splendid coral gardens and giant clams.
