Set sail for a 13-day / 12 night romantic yet adventurous cruise to discover the most beautiful islands of the Seychelles, with one of our fantastic small luxury yacht cruising partners, Ponant!
November 29th 2018 - December 11th 2018
Leaving from Victoria, the archipelago’s capital, fall under the spell of the idyllic landscapes, with their exceptional flora and fauna. Your first port of call will be in the island of Aride, an unspoiled delight of the Indian Ocean, home to thousands of birds including some endemic species. In Praslin, don’t miss the chance to visit the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve. There you will find sea coconuts, gigantic fruits with a very evocative shape, nicknamed the “love nut”.
During your cruise, you will have many opportunities to dive or snorkel, notably in Poivre, Astove, Aldabra, and at the heart of the sublime coral reef in the Alphonse lagoon.
Another highlight of your trip will be the port of call at Aldabra, a gigantic coral atoll that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Edged with mangrove and fine sandy beaches, it is home to the largest colony of land turtles in the world.
Before you return to Mahé, you will chart a course for the coral island of Desroches and the sublime beaches of La Digue, some of the most renowned of the Seychelles.
