One of the rare Seychelles atolls with untouched flats surrounding the island, Desroches offers a fabulous combination of flats fishing about the island itself with some of the best bluewater fishing in the Indian Ocean. What makes this area so rich in fish stock is the 1,300 meter Amirantes Trench, which separates the atolls of Desroches, Poive and St Josephs and brings a constant rich flow of current.

Desroches’ offshore structure features an ideal 38 km ring of sunken coral atoll, all surrounded by a sheer drop-off, teeming with both pelagic and reef fish.
