- Good diving, snorkeling and sport fishing
- Strong winds ideal for experienced sailors
- Remote, largely unexplored islands
Scattered into small islands and cays harbouring sensational coral reefs, many of the Indian Ocean’s jewels remain largely untouched and little known. With strong winds, powerful currents and submerged hazards to navigate, experienced skippers will relish the opportunity to conquer an ocean that has so much to offer adventurers.
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. Snorkeling 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.
