Your Cruise Itinerary —
During their tour, our members will follow the itinerary as seen below.
Please Note: The itinerary may be modified at any time by the captain due to security, weather forecasts or any other reason that could impact the cruise.
Welcome aboard your big catamaran. Around a cocktail, your Captain and your hostess will introduce you to the ship and give you a few instructions for life on board. Once properly installed, you will leave the marina for a short navigation to the St. Anne Marine Park, whose largest island was also the first to be colonised by the French, in around 170, before they headed to Mahé. More than 150 species of fish populate this fascinating underwater world, a true refuge under high protection. Welcome to paradise at this first stopover: help yourself to flippers, masks and snorkels and enjoy dinner and an overnight anchor in the Marine Park.
After breakfast and some morning diving in the natural aquarium, head off to Praslin. The second largest island in the Seychelles, Praslin is located 45 km northeast of the main island of Mahé, and is only 10 km long and 3.7 km wide! Depending on the season and the weather, you will anchor in Anse Lazio or in the Bay of St Anne, on the other side of the island. The bay of St Anne has the relaxing charm of the villages bordering the rainforest and will offer you a wonderful view of the island of Praslin and a large welcoming beach.
Anse Lazio is reputed to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, like many other beaches in the Seychelles. While its white sandy beaches are sure to amaze, make the most of this stop at Praslin by discovering (not included) another gem of the island: the Valley of May, a Unesco World Heritage Site. If the original Garden of Eden existed, it must have looked like the Valley of May. A vast forest of primary palms, the valley is home to the legendary coco de mer, the largest seed in the world, which rises to more than 30 meters. The forest is also home to six palm species that exist only in the Seychelles. The ambient humidity, the intoxicating scents, the rustling of the palms, and the filtered sunlight will project you into another world, at the dawn of time. Afterwards, enjoy dinner and an overnight stay at the anchorage facing the beach of Anse Lazio or Anse Ste Anne (not to be confused with the island Sainte Anne, your stopover the day before).
Early this morning, you will sail to your next stop, the legendary island of La Digue. It has one of the most photographed beaches in the world: Anse Source d'Argent. La Digue is also a natural sanctuary sheltering one of the rarest birds in the world, the black flycatcher of paradise, as well as a rich flora of orchids, vanilla, and hibiscus. Discover this idyllic island by bike or ox cart, and pay a visit to the small traditional shipyard, the old-fashioned copra factory, and the turtles grazing nearby. Also, don't forget to seek out the splendid colonial house called "Emmanuelle", where the famous "Good Bye Emmanuelle" was filmed. After, enjoy dinner and an overnight anchor at La Digue.
This morning, you will reach Coco Island, located 7km north of La Digue, close to its neighbours, Félicité and the Sister Islands. Classified as a marine park since 1996, the Island is exceptional for the practice of freediving as well as scuba diving. After this morning incursion into the wonderful world of corals, you will sail to your third island of the day, Curieuse. Formerly, this rough island collected a colony of lepers in Anse Saint Joseph and the dwelling of the doctor dating from 1870, was recently converted into an eco-museum. Today, Curieuse is part of an exciting project to raise giant tortoises. You can meet them all over the island. It is also an important breeding site for Hawksbill turtles. Enjoy dinner and overnight anchorage at Curieuse.
Depart in the morning to reach the islet of St Pierre. St. Pierre is part of the islands of the Bay of Gold Coast Praslin. It is a tiny island of granite rocks interspersed with coconut palms, one of the iconic images of the archipelago. This perfect spot for swimming and snorkelling will welcome you for a day of total relaxation, punctuated by a wonderful sunset. Afterwards. enjoy dinner and overnight anchor in front of Praslin beach.
After breakfast and morning swimming, departure for Cousin Island, located not far from Praslin, next to its neighbour Cousine. Managed by Birdlife International since 1975, it has been a nature reserve since 1968. A veritable ornithological sanctuary, Cousin is home to 25,000 birds, including some rare species such as the Seychelles warbler, saved from total extinction thanks to this reserve. A colony of Geckoes turtles, imported from Aldabra Atoll, are also enjoying happy days here. Please Note: the guided tour of Bird Paradise is not free. If you choose to take this excursion, you will see the 5 species of birds that live only in this region. You will then sail to the island of Mahé, to anchor either facing the beach of Beau Vallon, in the north-west or Anse Royale, which can be found in the south-east of the island, depending on the winds. Afterwards. enjoy dinner and overnight anchorage.
On the last day aboard your catamaran, you will discover according to the season either Beau Vallon or Anse Royale. Beau Vallon is a huge bay that closes on a bow of three kilometres of white sand and a blue lagoon, perfect for swimming, strolling and water sports. Very popular among visitors, Beau Vallon is also a privileged meeting place with the Seychellois who particularly appreciate the place: restaurants, small bars and welcoming shops line the promenade along the beach.
Anse Royale is wilder and also offers kilometres of white sand, hemmed with coconut trees. In the middle of the afternoon, you will sail to the islet Sainte Anne for your last evening on board. The Marine Park of Sainte Anne is home to an absolutely magical seabed and has the particularity of offering to the eyes of visitors colorful coral gardens in abundance. The Park is a refuge for many species of tropical fish and reef sharks, which are totally harmless. It is also not uncommon to meet sea turtles. Here, you will find restaurants and stalls where you can taste the local cuisine and buy some souvenirs to bring back. Enjoy a farewell dinner and last night on board, by an anchor or at the dock.
Day 8: Mahé - Eden Island - Departure
Before sunrise, take small navigation to reach the Eden Island Marina. Enjoy a last breakfast on board, before an early landing to take your flight back or continue your holidays in this archipelago with the taste of paradise.
