Seychelles

DAY 1: Mahé (Victoria Harbour) - Sainte-Anne
Your boarding is scheduled between 3 and 4 p.m. on the Inter Island Pier in Victoria Harbour. Once on board, the crew will take you to your cabin. You will then be invited to a welcome cocktail and get to know the other passengers. The captain will briefly introduce you to the safety briefing and your program for the week. You will then leave the port to reach the beautiful island of Sainte-Anne. Welcome dinner and night at anchor.

DAY 2 : Sainte-Anne - Curious
Morning departure to Curieuse, an uninhabited island belonging to the Seychelles National Park. It is home to the giant turtles of the archipelago, but also to the famous coco de mer (also known as coco-buttock due to their subjective shape). For those who wish, it is possible to follow a local guide to explore the mangroves and visit the farm that houses young turtles. You then return to the beach to enjoy a delicious barbecue. You will have the afternoon to wander around Curieuse, or simply lie down under a palm tree to enjoy the calm of the island. Dinner and night at anchor.

DAY 3 : Curieuse - Cousin - Anse Lazio (Praslin)
At dawn, the crew weighed anchor and set course for Cousin. Once privately owned, this granite island was bought in 1968 by the National Council for the Protection of Birds, becoming a nature reserve. Every year, Cousin welcomes more than 250,000 seabirds that come here to lay their eggs. On the spot, you can observe indigenous passerines (the Seychelles' bearberry, the foudi, the song magpie...) but also sea birds (the white gygis, the noodi, the yellow-billed phaeton...). Back on the boat, you sail to Praslin, to anchor in front of the irresistible beach of Anse lazio. You will put on flippers, masks and snorkels to explore the seabed. Dinner and overnight on board.

DAY 4 : Anse Lazio - Arid - Saint-Pierre - Baie de Ste-Anne (Praslin)
This morning, the ship is heading for Aride. Contrary to its evocative name, it is far from being a desert! It even hides Wright's Gardenia, an endemic plant that grows only on this island. We will propose you to walk in the heart of its wild nature alongside a ranger who will guide you to the top of the island (optional). Seen from above, the panorama is breathtaking! Lunch on board, then sail to Saint-Pierre Island. Its translucent water will incite you to dive to discover the beauty of its underwater fauna and flora. At sunset, you will set sail for the bay of Ste-Anne. Creole evening, animated by local dancers. Night at the dock.

DAY 5 : Baie de Ste-Anne - Felicite or Grand Soeur - La Digue
Optional excursion to the rainforest of the Vallée de Mai. Often associated with the mythical Garden of Eden, this UNESCO World Heritage site conceals the famous coconut palms, whose fruit weighs an average of 25 kg. It is also in the middle of its palm trees that the last black parrots (an endangered species) hide. Your journey continues to Felicite (or Grande Sœur). This island renowned for its diving spots will be the perfect place for snorkeling enthusiasts. You may come across turtles, leopard rays, surgeon fish... You leave at the end of the afternoon and arrive at La Digue in the evening. Dinner and night on board.

DAY 6 : La Digue - Average
Optional half-day excursion to La Digue, one of the most photographed islands of the archipelago thanks to its imposing granite rocks. During your trip, you will pass by the Union plantation located on the sublime Anse Source d'Argent beach. You will finish by Union Estate, a former coconut plantation. You will discover an old copra mill, which used to make coconut oil. You will return to the ship in the late afternoon. The captain will cast off in the direction of Middle Island, with its fabulous stories of piracy. Dinner and overnight on board.

DAY 7 : Moyenne - Mahé (Victoria Harbour)
You set foot on land and start the guided tour of the island with a ranger. You then go to the beach, where the crew has prepared delicious barbecue grills for you (weather permitting). Take advantage of your afternoon to stroll around the island, relax on the warm sand and swim among the fish. Back on board, you set sail for Mahé. During the crossing, you can get ready for the captain's dinner, which will take place in a friendly and warm atmosphere. The evening will end with music. Night on board.

DAY 8 : Mahé (Victoria Harbour)
Disembarkation after breakfast around 9am.
