DAY 1 : Mahé - Round Island
The crew and captain are waiting for you at Inter Island Quay at 10:30 am for your boarding. After the captain's welcome and briefing, you will depart for Round Island. You will arrive in the late afternoon and enjoy a delicious barbecue on the boat.

DAY 2 : Round Island - Praslin
For this day, you will sail in the direction of Praslin. You will visit the Vallée de Mai, a site classified by UNESCO and nicknamed the "Garden of Eden". This forest of palm trees is home to the famous "coco de mer", known as the largest seed in the world. During your walk you may have the chance to see the Seychelles black parrot. The afternoon will be dedicated to diving (extra charge), or other water sports. Dinner and overnight on board.

DAY 3 : Praslin - La Digue
The captain weighed anchor in the morning and set course for La Digue. This island surrounded by granite rocks is home to the famous and heavenly Anse Source d'Argent beach. You can visit it by bicycle (hire on site) or by horse-drawn cart! On your way to Union State, you will discover some of the island's traditional activities: a copra factory, a vanilla plantation and a shipyard. Dinner and overnight on board.

DAY 4: La Digue - The Sisters - Coco Island
After breakfast, you leave for the islands of Big Sister and Little Sister (the Sisters). These islands are very popular with divers and are home to a particularly diverse underwater fauna and flora. You may have the chance to observe sea turtles swimming to the beach. You will then go to Coco, a wild and preserved island. You'll put on flippers, mask and snorkel and dive amongst a myriad of tropical fish. Dinner and overnight on board.
