ISLANDS OF LIVING BEAUTY …
Off the coast of Africa in the heart of the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles archipelago is an unspoiled destination of tropical palm forests, emerald waters, coral reefs, and silver white sand beaches.
On the main island of Mahe, explore century-old Botanical Gardens and visit local villages with their colorful fish and fruit markets, craft shops, art galleries and museums. Creole, French and English are all spoken on the islands and you can find the culinary delights of many nationalities to please your palette. Sail to Praslin, the legendary Garden of Eden, or cruise to La Digue where you can tour a bird sanctuary and visit beautiful beaches with dramatic rock formations by ox-cart or bicycle.
A TRIP TO THE SEYCHELLES IS NOT COMPLETE WITHOUT EXPLORING MULTIPLE ISLANDS AND THERE IS NO BETTER WAY THAN ON BOARD YOUR OWN PRIVATE YACHT!
Uninhabited until little more than 200 years ago, almost half of these lovely granite and coral islands have been classified a natural reserve and sanctuary for rare birds and tropical forests. The Seychelle Islands are exclusive home to more than 75 endemic flowering plants, 11 species of birds, the only living sea coconuts, and giant land turtles.
The Islands offer more than 88 square miles of Marine National Reserves filled with tropical fish and coral reefs. Charter guests can enjoy amazing snorkeling, kayaking and water skiing in the crystal waters of the Seychelles and experience deep-sea fishing off the continental shelf’s dramatic drops … Or simply lounge on deck and soak in the beauty of this perfect setting.
