Destination

Indian Ocean

Praslin - Sainte Anne Island - Curieuse Island - Sainte Pierre Island - Mahé

The best time to travel to Seychelles is from June to October. From mid-May to the beginning of June, July, and August, the ocean is sometimes rough and quite choppy. For our divers, snorkelers and sailors, visit the small islands in April, May, and November for the best conditions.

Your sailing trip begins on Praslin's tropical bay, Sainte Anne. At 9 AM, you will sail to Grand Soeur, where you will take a quick detour before heading to Curieuse Island.

Spend your first day on the island basking in the sun, hiking up two steep and stony hills, and exploring the small coconut plantation. In about 40 minutes, you will have already seen all of the tourist attractions of the island. So now you have the entire day to snorkel, try an adventurous water sport, or relax on the white, powdery beach. In the evening, you can enjoy a beachfront barbeque and stay at the Bay of Curieuse or Anse Petite Cour.

In the early morning, wake up to a beautiful tropical view and a delicious breakfast on your catamaran, Mojito 82. Today, you will explore the Curieuse Island's Marine National Park, the granitic island's flora and fauna sanctuary and home to more than 300 giant tortoises. The giant tortoises live here freely, so it's the perfect place to get to know the gentle animals.

After lunch on board, continue to the quaint Saint Pierre Island. Capture unforgettable photos of Seychelles' typical granite rocks. You can also discover the unique underwater world and the many colorful fish that live here!

When you anchor on Praslin in the evening, you will either stay at Anse Volbert or Anse Lazio.

Snorkeling, swimming, and water sports are on today's list of adventures! Enjoy the first part of your day on Praslin; then, in the afternoon, you will continue your journey to Mahé. Spend your last night onboard Mojito 82 off the coast of Mahé.

Sadly, your sailing adventure has come to an end. Early in the morning, you will disembark your catamaran at the Mahé harbor. Thank the captain and the crew for their hard work and walk back onto land with many unforgettable memories.

Not ready to leave this tropical getaway? We recommend a beach holiday extension in Seychelles!
