The Rowley Shoals National Marine Park a days cruise and 250 km west of Broome you find the Rowley Shoals, a scuba diving site that must rank among the most ‘remote’ and pristine marine areas in the world. The Shoals are the remains of three volcanoes that rose out of the ocean, the tops of which became colonised by coral to form a chain of three spectacular and pristine coral atolls, each covering approximately 80 sq km. The three pear-shaped atolls have shallow lagoons inhabited by corals and abundant marine life. All three atolls are strikingly similar in dimension, shape, orientation and distance apart. Each atoll is north-south orientated, pear-shaped, with the narrow end towards the north. The Rowley Shoals rise with nearly vertical sides from very deep water. Mermaid Reef, the most northerly, rises from about 440 metres, Clerke from 390 metres and Imperieuse from about 230 metres.
