    Day Date Port of Call Arrival Departure
    1 Wednesday, December 8, 2021 Mahe Island, Seychelles Embark 7:00 PM
    View of Mahe Island, Seychelles

    Mahe is the largest and most important island of the Seychelles archipelago. While this spectacular island is only 27 km long it is dominated by a mountain range with its tallest peak Morne Seychellois, at 930 m in height, being central to a wonderful national park. There are also some delightful marine national parks off the island. The capital city of Victoria is small enough that it does not take too long to walk around, and this is the best way to see the city and to get a feel of the place and its people, who are often called the ‘friendliest people in the world’.

    Curieuse Island is a small granitic island in the Seychelles off the north coast of Praslin, the second largest island in the Seychelles. The island is notable for being one of only two islands native to the Coco de Mer. Today it is the home of roughly 300 Aldabra Giant Tortoises. The island is also known for giant takamaka trees, a large hawksbill turtle rookery, and several bird species including the rare Seychelles Black Parrot that is found only here and on nearby Praslin Island.

    View of Praslin, Seychelles

    Praslin is the second largest island of the Seychelles, lying 44 km NE of Mahe. Once used as a hideaway by pirates and Arab merchants, it is now known as a tourist destination as it is home to beautiful turquoise water and white sand beaches such as Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette. There are also several very rare birds such as the endemic Seychelles Bulbub and the Seychelles Black Parrot, as well as being the only place on earth that is home to the unique Coco de Mer, a fruit from an extraordinary palm tree.

    8 Wednesday, December 15, 2021 La Digue, Seychelles 12:00 AM 12:00 AM
    View of La Digue, Seychelles

    La Digue is the third largest inhabited island of the Seychelles, lying east of Praslin and west of Felicite Island. La Digue also boasts the friendliest people and most tranquil, serene and relaxing atmosphere in Seychelles. Where cars are shunned in favour of bicycles and ox-carts, the pace of life is necessarily slower. Today, tourism is the island’s mainstay as it offers wide deserted beaches, such as Anse Source d’Argent and Grand Anse, which are perfect for long walks, safe swimming, snorkelling and fishing.
