Full day Cruise of Mahe Islands's southern coast

Cruise from Victoria along the east coast to the beautiful south and experience the route of the pirates 3 centuries ago. When we reach Anse Royale, the site of the Royal Spice Garden, the catamaran will ply along the reef to give you the best that the South coast has to offer, with views that have remained practically unchanged for centuries. Sail along the beach of Anse Forbans, frequented by pirates to careen their ship and to stock up on food and water. It is also believed that certain treasures are buried here.

The majestic boulder of Cap Mason is believed to have been the place where witch doctors used to perform their macabre rituals. The unspoilt coves of Anse Marie Louise, Capucin, Petit Boileau and Pointe Police are now considered to be the last nesting beaches of the hawksbill turtles, a species threatened with extinction. A snorkeling stop is also scheduled to view the underwater world in all its splendour. Before lunch, the guests are allowed to stretch their legs on the white sandy beach. A barbeque lunch is served on board. Our return cruise starts just after lunch, this time further from the coast for us to cast our lines for a bit of game fishing.

Full Day Trail & Sail

An opportunity to experience a thrilling adventure trekking and cruising back on our catamaran "Catalina". Starting from 'Danzilles', the palm-fringed trail along the deserted northwest coast is bordered with granite boulders. Our experienced guide points out the flora and fauna along the way. The 1.5 hour walk ends at 'Anse Major', where our catamaran "Catalina" is moored in the sheltered bay. After boarding from the pristine beach by dinghy, the day's excursion continues with a cruise to the Bay Ternay marine park, stopping at some beautiful snorkelling sites, where guests not wishing to swim can spend time feeding the fish or sunbathing on the spacious deck. A delicious Creole buffet lunch is served on board.

General Information

Seychelles has an effective environmental protection programme, with over 40% of its land mass having been designated as national parks. These islands are also one of the few places on earth where tourist activities are not only closely linked to the environment, but contribute positively to the conservation projects, allowing the endemic flora and fauna to continue flourishing in their natural habitat.

There are approximately 250 indigenous species of plants in the Seychelles, of which 75 of them are unique to our islands. Many of these rare plants grow in remote areas, only accessible by walking.
