Remote, scarcely populated, and all but unexplored, the many islands of the Seychelles let you live out your castaway daydreams. The Seychelles reward 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 on this scarcely explored island chain.
