Seychelles Cruises in the Garden of Eden

Seychelles is the perfect destination to experience a unique island-hopping voyage

Don’t miss…

  • Translucent island waters
  • The amazing natural beauty
  • Stunning snorkelling
  • Centuries-old rain forests
  • Wonderful wild-life
  • Brilliant bird life and giant tortoises
  • ‘Coco de Mer’ palm trees

You need a small craft with a comparatively shallow draft to best explore these waters where every next stop is a little further away from life’s beaten track than the last. So, a mega yacht cruise has to be the ultimate way to really discover the unspoilt island paradise of the Seychelles, hopping from island to island, visiting places which will captivate your senses with their amazing and unique flora and fauna.

Let’s be honest this is an entirely different sort of world where life is as fascinating and unusual below the water as it is above, and every secluded beach is a private paradise. The islands themselves, with curious names like ‘Curieuse’, pretty much protected from the world at large, are little lands that time forgot. If you’re looking to escape from the humdrum of the workaday world, or simply the dismal damp UK winter, this is the place to escape to.

Optional Cruise & Stay

With daily sunshine virtually guaranteed, we recommend you consider extending your stay on the main island of Mahe which boasts some excellent hotels and fine beaches, as well as a unique Creole culture which represents the fusion of influences that have shaped the history of these islands.

Your Vessel: The M/Y Pegasus

Ports of call: Mahe - St Anne - Curieuse - Couisin Island - Anse Lazio - Aride - St Pierre - Baie St Anne (Praslin) - Felicite - La Digue - Moyenne Island - Mahe

The Weather

The weather in the Seychelles is warm all year round with temperatures rarely going below 24c or above 32c. The hottest months are December to March, with April to October being cooler.
