The afternoon will be dedicated to diving (extra charge), or other water sports. Dinner and overnight on board.

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.

    Vacanza indimenticabile

    Una vacanza stupenda e sicuramente il modo migliore in assoluto per vedere le Seychelles e godersele al massimo. L'unica nota dolente è che la barca ha caratteristiche molto Basic ed è piuttosto vecchia (110 anni!) seppure rinnovata, soprattutto gli spazi esterni potrebbero essere riforniti un poco meglio per renderli più godibili. Inoltre la goletta è risultata essere molto più instabile di quanto non immaginassimo con conseguente mal di mare (mai avuto su altri tipi di imbarcazioni). Tuttavia l'equipaggio è stato top in tutto, da cuoco che cucina da mattina a sera, al capitano che ci ha sempre consigliato le esperienze migliori facendoci godere al massimo ogni minuto fuori dalla barca, al diving master che ci ha portato alla scoperta dei fondali e tutto il resto del team. Se il vostro obiettivo è godervi le isole più che la barca allora siete nel posto giusto!

    Une croisière aux Seychelles, archipel paradisiaque

    L'accueil a été très bien organisé, aux petits soins pour les passagers. L'équipage au top et très accueillant, compréhensif et surtout à l'écoute. La nourriture est très bonne, le cuisto fait du bon travail, on a des fruits etc...seul bémol, les boissons payantes peuvent vite faire augmenter la note. Les excursions sont tops, souvent bien organisées, et bien expliquées. Le capitaine annonce son programme tous les soirs. Les paysages traversées aussi bien mer que sur les îles sont à couper le souffle de beauté.
