Day 1: Boarding in Mahe, Eden Island Marina starting at 5.30 pm. Time for a welcome drink, briefing, unpack your stuff and dinner.
Day 2: Our first sailing day will bring us to Port Glaud bay, a small secluded bay, good for swimming and snorkling. Dinner at the resort.
Day 3: Beau Vallon bay is picturesque bay to stay overnight. Ashore are some shops, bars and restaurant and a great beach to hang out.
Day 4: Dotted with coco-de-mer palms and thick stands of mangroves, Curieuse Island is a typical example of the unparalleled 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. 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. This is the Island with its world famous gigantic turtles, and we will have a beach BBQ right in the Turtle Park.
Day 5: 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. We will be there early, so you have plenty of time to rent a bike after lunch on board to explore the Island or go for scuba diving.
Day 6: Coco-de-Mer National Park is on the program for today. With our local guide Julietta and the local gay driver Francis, you will have great afternoon visiting the park and see the special trees. After the park we sail to Anse Lazio, in the North of St Anne. One of the most beautiful bays of the Seychelles and great jungle beach bar.
Day 7: 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 we will dine out and savor the local cuisine.
Day 8: Our last sailing day back to Mahe the perfect final stop on an unforgettable adventure and time to say goodbye to your new friends.
