Day 1: Check-in
Check-in available from 5 p.m. at the embarkation Marina. After the technical check-in and a short presentation of the boat, you can take your seat in the cabins and board the galley before setting sail.
We set sail for a peaceful navigation to the north. Lunch break and dives in the magic bay of Anse Lazio, north of Praslin, and then straight to the wonderful Curieuse Island. This is a natural park where you can admire fabulous giant turtles, have a walk among the mangroves and enjoy fresh fish and seafood under a huge gazebo.
From Curieus, we raise sail towards the south in the direction of La Digue, one of the most spectacular islands in the Seychelles archipelago. It is famous for its immense pink granite rocks overlooking enchanting beaches of pure white sand, full of coconut palms. You will be astounded when you arrive in Anse Source D'Argent bay, elected one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. Night at anchor to enjoy the suggestive colors of the sun setting behind the island of Praslin.
In the morning, we enjoy a peaceful sailing in crystal clear waters from La Digue to Cusine, a small enchanted island with an atmosphere of complete relax, where nature flourishes and man is a silent observer.
We leave from Cusine in the early morning, sailing east to encounter the famous “Sisters Islands”, Grande Soeur and Petit Soeur, immersed in a crystal clear sea and representing one of the last natural paradises far from civilization. On Grand Soeur you can go on an excursion ashore, walking among its tropical plants under a blue sky and enjoying unique landscapes surrounded only by the sound of the sea and the singing of birds.
Coco Island is located only a few miles south of Grande Soeur. This little uninhabited place became a marine park in 1996, and will leave you breathless for the extraordinary beauty of its transparent waters accompanied by a simply perfect coral reef. Here you can dedicate yourself to the best snorkeling and the most exciting immersions in the Seychelles.
We head west to go back to Praslin. Return to the Marina in the early afternoon and time for exploring the hinterland: you can enter the forest and visit the famours natural reserve of Vallee de Mai (Unesco heritage) in a harmony of plants of all kinds, among which the gigantic "coco de Mer", the biggest seed in the world (up to 60 kg) that grows exclusively on this island. Return to the Marina at 6 p.m. with overnight stay in the port included.
