A Seychelles cruising itinerary takes you into a holiday paradise. The marine reserves on islands populated with diverse and rare species of birds, lizards, and turtles in the Seychelles are exotic and intriguing. The plant life is varied too, from the coco-de-mer palms with huge double coconuts to the pitcher plants, gardenias, and orchids that grow on the mountain slopes. Passages combine a mix of open-water cruising in fair winds and short hops between adjacent islands for snorkelling and scuba diving on the coral reefs or simply relaxing on one of the many white-sand beaches. Although the Inner Islands of the Seychelles are mostly undeveloped (see Seychelles maps), some are home to seaside resorts and small settlements, providing plenty to do ashore as well as aboard your luxury yacht.

Day 1

St. Anne Island

St. Anne Island is the centerpiece of this beautiful marine park, and nearby Moyenne, Round, and Cerf are just as scenic. During World War II St. Anne served as a base for a contingent of Royal Marines stationed there to defend the port of Victoria in the event of an enemy attack. In the early 19th century, the area was a busy whaling port. Today, cruising in St. Anne Marine National Park is a delightful foray into the wonders of Nature, with superb snorkeling and swimming, and a number of restaurants where you can dine out and savor the local cuisine.

Day 2

Curieuse Island

Dotted with coco-de-mer palms and thick stands of mangroves, Curieuse Island is a typical example of the unparaleled beauty you’ll find in the Seychelles. In the distant past, the island was the site of a leper colony. Today, it’s a cruising paradise.

Day 3

Grande Soeur Island

Grande Soeur Island is privately owned, but boaters are welcome to enjoy the swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing on its beautiful beaches on weekdays between 10:00 A.M. and 3:00 P.M. It’s well worth the effort to go cruising in Grande Soeur Island waters.

Day 4

Coco Islands

The four tiny islands of the Ile Coco Marine National Park are among some of the most beautiful in the Indian Ocean. They are often shown on brochures depicting the stunning beauty of the Seychelles. Coco Islands brings you to waters that offer the best snorkeling in the area.

Day 5

La Digue Island

The third largest island in the Seychelles, La Digue is a place with quiet charm. Hiking and horseback riding trails lace the lush, hilly land, and the views from Belle Vue and the top of Nid Aigle are truly spectacular. The island has several restaurants and an eclectic mix of shops. Colonial-era homes line the streets, a reminder of the storied past of the island that becomes obvious when you go cruising in La Digue Island waters.

Day 6

Cousin Island

Bird sanctuaries are an important part of the park system in the Seychelles. Rare birds such as the bulbul, black parrot, and the fruit pigeon are all protected species endemic to the islands. Cousin Island is a highlight of any Seychelles yacht charter.

Day 1

Beau Vallon Bay

Cruising in Beau Vallon Bay is a delightful way to experience a side of Mahé that draws vacationers from around the world. This beach resort is by far the most popular on the island, boasting first class hotels, fine dining, and gambling in the casinos. Enjoy the watersports, snorkeling, and swimming in an idyllic setting. The sunsets are stunningly beautiful, a picture-perfect scene to mark the end of a wonderful day in paradise and the start of a fantastic evening ashore.

Day 2

Baie St. Anne

Cruising in Baie St. Anne takes you to the main harbor at Praslin Island, the second largest of the Seychelles Inner Islands. It’s an interesting place with a number of stores and restaurants. The nearby Vallee de Mai is a must-see destination while you’re at Baie St. Anne.
