Seychelles

DAY 1: Mahé - Round Island
Your captain and crew will meet you at Inter Island Quay at 10:30 a.m. for boarding. After a warm welcome, you leave Mahé in the direction of Round Island, which takes its name from its almost perfect rounded shape. This first day will be an opportunity to enjoy the turquoise water and sandy beaches. For dinner, a barbecue will be offered on board.

DAY 2 : Round Island - Praslin
You'll head to the island of Praslin for the second day. Your morning will be devoted to exploring the Vallée de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Beneath the island's endemic palm trees, some of which date back to prehistoric times, you may encounter the world's only black Seychelles parrot. Your afternoon will be dedicated to diving or simply relaxing on board.

DAY 3 : Praslin - La Digue
Early in the morning, sail to La Digue. If you want to visit the island on your own, the bicycle remains the ideal means of transport. You will discover the island's traditional activities, such as the vanilla plantation. A stopover at La Digue would not be complete without visiting Anse Source d'Argent, often considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, for its unique coral reef in the archipelago.

DAY 4 : La Digue - Coco Island
The Big Sister and Little Sister islands will welcome you for a diving or snorkeling session. A unique way to visit these uninhabited tropical islands and their preserved coral reefs. After lunch, your captain will set sail for Coco Island. You will have the opportunity to meet the marine fauna that evolves around this granite island. A multitude of marine species are already waiting for you there, to the delight of photographers!

DAY 5 : Coco Island - Arid
The morning will be devoted to Boody Island. On the program: turquoise lagoon and lounging around! At the beginning of the afternoon, you will reach Aride, a natural reserve sheltering an exceptional fauna. There are five varieties of endemic birds and more than 400 different species of fish. You will discover Wright's Gardenias, the only place on the planet where this flower grows naturally.

DAY 6 : Arid - Curious
Morning departure to the island of Curieuse. Virtually uninhabited, the island has a vast mangrove forest to visit. During your excursion, you can discover the giant turtle farm or the historical ruins of an ancient colony. Enjoy a stroll along the waterfront before a barbecue for lunch. Sunset on the warm sand and swimming will be on the agenda at the end of the day.

DAY 7 : Curious - Mahé
After breakfast, your captain will set a course for Mahé. On the way back, enjoy a last dive in the "big blue" near Ile Sèche. A barbecue will be offered on board. You will spend the night at anchor in the Sainte-Anne Marine Park.

DAY 8 : Mahé
In the morning, back to Victoria Harbour. Disembarkation at Inter Island Quay at 8:30.

Our customers' reviews of this boat

    Seychelles

    La crociera eccellente, però la cabina assegnata non corrispondeva alle foto in quanto molto più piccola, precisamente la più piccola dell’imbarcazione. Facciamo notare che le coppie presenti avevano cabine da tre letti molto più grandi della nostra seppure fossero in due e non necessitassero del 3 letto. Sicuramente non è stata posta Nessuna attenzione all’assegnazione delle cabine sebbene siamo saliti a bordo alle 9.30 e l’imbarco fisse previsto per le 10.30 tutte le cabine erano già state assegnate senza però usare nessun buon senso in quanto sono state assegnate cabine con terzo letto e di dimensioni maggiori alla nostra, a coppie che non ne necessitavano. Per quanto riguarda i servizi riteniamo che a bordo l’acqua andrebbe fornita da bottiglie o da grossi contenitori e non come accaduto dai rubinetti dell’imbarcazione. Per precisione l’imbarcazione era la Sea Bird e non la Sea Star come riportato nella prenotazione
