The Muiron Islands (Murion Islands) can be found approximately 15 kilometers northeast of Exmouth and consists of the islands South Muiron, North Muiron and Sunday Island. There are three conservation areas in these deserted islands where its coral and aquatic life is well monitored. There are boat moorings to protect damaging the coral and fishing is not allowed. Remember that the area is prone to unpredictable sea conditions, severe currents, large swells and strong winds. The one hour trip from North West Cape, Exmouth, should be done with experienced charters only and can be rough, especially for those with sea sickness.
On your boat trip towards the Muiron Islands, pay attention to migrating whales (seasonal), mantas and several bird species such as ospreys (sea hawks) and shearwaters. The dive sites surrounding the islands are stunning. You can find spectacular in glassfish filled swimmthroughs, coral gardens from bright yellow up to shades of red and pink and high speed drift dives. You can spot dolphins, olive sea snakes, mackerel, Queensland groper, cods and dugongs. There are waving sea fans, huge soft coral gardens and beautiful in hard coral decorated rocks. The shores of Muiron Island are used as turtle hatching areas in late November. Popular dive sites are the Cod Hole named after the many potato cods often found here and the Spit, which is a rocky ledge with plenty of baitfish and sharks. Although visibilities are often less than 10m, the diving here is authentic in waters rich of food and with many large and small marine fish.
