Itinerary

Map

Whether you like water sports, nature walks or discovering other cultures, the archipelago is full of treasures. This cruise will make you discover the most beautiful places of the Seychelles such as Anse Source d'Argent or the Sainte-Anne Natural Park.

DAY 1: Mahé/Beau Vallon Bay.
Your captain and crew will meet you at Inter Island Quay at 10:30 a.m. for boarding. After a warm welcome, your cruise begins along the coast of Mahé. You will sail along the north-west coast of the island passing by the bay of Beau-Vallon. On the spot, you can enjoy a preserved landscape, the ideal setting for a barbecue dinner and a first night at anchor.

DAY 2 : Beau Vallon Bay - Baie Ternay
You will continue your navigation off Mahé in the direction of Ternay Bay on the west coast of the island. This marine park will be the ideal place for a first dive, with or without tanks, according to your wishes. In the afternoon, return to Beau-Vallon where you can enjoy a sunset worthy of tropical latitudes.

DAY 3 : Ternay Bay - Cousin
Early in the morning, you set sail for Cousin Island to continue your stay. Once there, keep your eyes open, you may see the Song Magpie. This extremely rare and endangered bird can be observed in the heart of a very protected bird sanctuary that you can visit. Cousin is an island where many other species reside for your enjoyment.

DAY 4 : Cousin - Vallée de Mai
Your cruise continues to Possession Cove, located on the island of Praslin. After discovering Cousin's rare fauna, you will explore the flora of the Vallée de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take advantage of the visit of a prehistoric forest to observe Black Parrot and Sea Coco, two rare and endemic species of the island. Back on board, an afternoon dedicated to the exploration of the seabed awaits you.

DAY 5 : Vallée de Mai - La Digue
On your fifth day, set course for la Digue. We suggest you rent a bike to visit the island as you wish. For those who would prefer a more atypical ride, the visit of the island by oxcart is also possible. How to visit La Digue without going through Anse Source d'Argent? Its granite blocks seem to have fallen from the sky, making it one of the most emblematic beaches on the planet.

DAY 6 : La Digue - Curious
In the early morning, you will sail towards the island of Curieuse, famous for its giant turtles. After a barbecue on the island, enjoy sunbathing on the warm sand. In the afternoon, you will sail to the island of Saint-Pierre where you will be able to dive in the company of Surgeon fish (Clown and White-breasted) and other species that have earned it the nickname "natural aquarium".

DAY 7 : Curious - Praslin
Beginning of the day in Anse Lazio. Take advantage of this stop to admire one of the most beautiful beaches of the Seychelles. Snorkeling, swimming and other activities are possible during the morning. In the afternoon, you set sail for Mahé. You will spend the night at anchor in the spectacular setting of the Sainte-Anne Marine Park.

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