EXAMPLE INTINERARY – 7 NIGHT CRUISE

Day 1

Embarkation at the Inter-Island Quay at 1030hrs for official welcome and briefing by the captain. Depart from Port Victoria at 1200hrs, sailing up and around the scenic coastline of Mahé's northern peninsula, past the beautiful bay of Beau Vallon, and along the dramatic backdrop of the northwestern coast of the island, with its opposing granite boulders, lush vegetation and striking blue water. In the evening, introduce yourself to Creole cuisine with a welcome barbecue onboard the vessel.

 

Day 2

 Sail to the beautiful Baie Ternay Marine Park and Nature Reserve on the western coast of Mahé, where calm,

crystal-clear waters provide for excellent snorkelling and diving during the day. An afternoon sail back to Beau Vallon Bay positions the vessel in one of the island's best places to watch the countless shades of pink and orange of a Seychelles sunset..

 

Day 3

 Sail to the beautiful Baie Ternay Marine Park and Nature Reserve on the western coast of Mahé, where calm, crystal-clear waters provide for excellent snorkelling and diving during the day. An afternoon sail back to Beau Vallon Bay positions the vessel in one of the island's best places to watch the countless shades of pink and orange of a Seychelles sunset. Please note May 2 - Nov 6 we visit Cousin Island instead of Baie Ternay.

 

Day 4

Enjoy a morning sail to Anse Possession on the island of Praslin, to disembark for a visit to the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Vallée de Mai nature reserve. This ancient forest is home to the infamous double coconut, the coco de mer, as well as the Black Parrot, unique to the island of Praslin. Explore the valley's eerie pathways beneath its canopy of massive palms, before returning onboard for afternoon opportunities to dive or snorkel.

 

DAY 5

A morning sail brings the vessel to La Digue, a sleepy island community where ox-carts and bicycles still remain the most common mode of transportation throughout the island. La Digue is home to the endemic Seychelles Paradise Flycatcher, and is perhaps most famous for its massive granite boulder formations at Anse Source d'Argent, which is thought to be the most photographed beach on earth. Explore the entire island by bicycle, stopping by Union Estate, a sprawling network of traditional island activities, including a copra mill, vanilla plantation, and shipyard

 

DAY 6

In the morning, sail to Curieuse for a visit of this virtually uninhabited island. Experience the island's vast mangrove forests and its giant tortoise farm, along with the historic ruins of this former leper colony. After a barbecue lunch on the island, enjoy an array of water sports or simply relax and enjoy the island's beautiful beach and turquoise waters. In the afternoon sail back towards Praslin for a visit to the tiny, picturesque granite outcrop of St. Pierre. St. Pierre is an excellent site for snorkelling and diving, with the nooks and crannies of its granite boulders teeming with marine life. In the afternoon sail to Anse Lazio, one of the most beautiful beaches in Praslin, and arguably, all of Seychelles – a perfect place for swimming, snorkelling and other water sports.

 

Day 7

After breakfast we sail towards Mahé. On the way we stop at ile Seche for the last opportunity of snorkeling, diving and a farewell barbecue.
