Investigator Islands

Originally called Rocky Isles when first discovered by Matthew Flinders in 1802, and then later renamed to honour his ship, the Investigator Islands are no more than two gigantic granite boulders rising out a tempestuous sea. Lying fifty-five miles west of Esperance and fifteen miles from the mainland, this rarely visited outpost for Nature invited our investigation and we planned to anchor there overnight if conditions allowed. With near perfect weather, here are the results of our exploration.
