Live out your castaway dreams
Remote, scarcely populated and all but unexplored, the many islands of the Seychelles let you live out your castaway daydreams. The Seychelles rewards intrepid sailors with strong winds, warm weather, spectacular wildlife and mesmerising scenery.
Home to our Seychelles base, the thick forests of Mahé Island hide many rare plant and animal species, including some that are found exclusively within the Seychelles. Hiking Mahé’s mountains offers rewarding views and the chance to witness remarkable and unusual wildlife, including carnivorous pitcher plants and the Seychelles’ 26 species of land-dwelling crab.
Both onshore and offshore the Seychelles are home to some rare and beautiful wildlife, and visitors can encounter giant tortoises, sea turtles and huge coconut crabs, or even swim alongside the world’s largest fish species: the magnificent whale shark. Diving and snorkelling in the Seychelles is among the very best on Earth, with the native wildlife largely unafraid of humans. Fish for tuna, sailfish and giant trevally out in the Indian Ocean or windsurf, sail, kayak or paddleboard in bathtub-warm waters. Develop a taste for adventure in this scarcely explored island chain.
Suggested bareboat itineraries
Charter a yacht from our base on remote Mahé and penetrate even further into the Seychelles archipelago. Challenge yourself in the tricky sailing conditions of the Indian Ocean and enjoy exhilarating blue water sailing between distant, sparsely populated islands. On a bareboat charter holiday you can set your own itinerary – free to take in as many activities you like or simply sail on until sunset.
Level 3 destinations are our most challenging. Suitable only for confident, experienced sailors, Level 3 destinations offer long spells of open water sailing, broad tidal ranges, strong winds and remote anchorages.
To sail in this destination you'll need at least an ICC or an RYA Day Skipper qualification or above.
