The port of Victoria is the only real port in Mahé. All foreign yachts visiting the Seychelles have to call at Port Victoria in order to complete clearance formalities, on arrival and departure. The port of Victoria, more often used for shipping containers, also offers a few services to pleasure boats and yachts chartered in Mahé. Nevertheless, the port of Victoria gives pleasure boaters on a cruise in the Seychelles the opportunity to refuel and re-supply.Water and electricity are available for crew passengers departing form or calling at Mahé.
A calmer and more charming marina of about 150 berths, away from cargos and containers, should be built in the next few years.
The port of Victoria is more of a practical port to re-supply from, rather than a mooring area that is sought-after by pleasure boaters on a cruise in the Seychelles!
The international airport is located only 10 km away from the port of Victoria. It is therefore very practical for foreigners to charter a yacht on the island of Mahé.
The town of Victoria is famous for its extraordinary market where stalls are full of colours and flavours. On a Saturday, go to Victoria’s market and have a look at the variety of local fresh fruits and vegetables. For the more adventurous, take a hike up the Morne Seychellois rising to 906 metres. The Morne Seychellois offers a breathtaking view of the archipelago of the Seychelles and the island of Mahé.
Consisting of 115 islands, this archipelago offers pleasure boaters leaving from Mahé the possibility to sail towards Silhouette, less than 15 nautical miles away, or islands like Praslin, La Digue, Cousine, located at about 20 nautical miles away to the east. For people fond of nature, fishing and who love to laze about, don’t hesitate to moor alongside the countless wild islands that make the archipelago of the Seychelles so special.
