Remote, wild and unexplored

Scattered with small islands and cays and harbouring countless submerged coral reefs, many of the Indian Ocean’s jewels remain largely untouched and little known to science. With strong winds, powerful currents and submerged coral reefs to contend with, experienced skippers will relish the opportunity to conquer an ocean that has much to offer those with an adventurous spirit.

Beneath the surface, warm ocean temperatures and fantastic visibility make the Indian Ocean a favourite destination for divers, snorkellers and swimmers, while the region’s sport fishing is also considered among the best on the planet. Snorkelling and diving the coral reefs of the Seychelles reveals numerous tropical fish species as well as spectacular sights such as the gigantic whale shark, while on land giant tortoises and coconut crabs—the world’s largest land-dwelling arthropod—are fairly common sights.

Our charter types

Bareboat charter holidays

Sail the beautiful Indian Ocean with only your curiosity to guide you, calling at the many small islands and cays of this beautiful region as you explore at your own pace. A bareboat charter holiday is the most liberating way to enjoy an Indian Ocean sailing holiday: just you, a beautiful yacht and the boundless ocean to discover.

Skippered charter holidays

Make your holiday as hands-on or as laid-back as you like on a skippered charter holiday, taking the helm to enjoy the thrilling blue water sailing of the Indian Ocean or sitting back and letting your skipper take control. Benefit from local recommendations you won’t find anywhere else as your skipper reveals the lesser-known highlights of this stunning region.
