Sea Shell & Sea Pearl

Weekly 7-night Cruise Itinerary from May to October

Day 1 - Saturday

Embarkation at the Inter-Island Quay at 1030hrs for official welcome and briefing by the captain.

Depart from Port Victoria at 1200hrs, sailing up and around the scenic coastline of Mahe's northern peninsula, past the beautiful bay of Beau Vallon, and along the dramatic backdrop of the northwestern coast of the island, with its opposing granite boulders, lush vegetation and striking blue water.

In the evening, introduce yourself to Creole cuisine with a welcome barbecue onboard the vessel.

Day 2 - Sunday

Sail to the beautiful Baie Ternay Marine Park and Nature Reserve on the western coast of Mahe, where calm, crystalclear waters provide opportunity for excellent snorkelling and diving during the day.

An afternoon sail back to Beau Vallon Bay positions the vessel in one of the island's best places to watch the countless shades of pink and orange of a Seychelles sunset.

Day 3 - Monday

Early morning sail towards Cousin island off the coast of Praslin, for morning visit of this strictly protected nature reserve, famed for its sea bird colonies and also as a sanctuary for Seychelles' rare endemic land birds and other native species.

After lunch we sail to Praslin, for an afternoon of diving and water-sports.

Day 4 - Tuesday

Disembarkation on Praslin, Seychelles' second-largest inhabited island, for the visit of the famous World Heritage Site, the Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve.

This ancient forest is home to the curiously shaped double coconut, the coco de mer, as well as the Black Parrot, unique to Praslin. Explore the valley's eerie pathways beneath its canopy of massive palms, before returning onboard for afternoon opportunities to dive, snorkel or enjoy other water sports.

Day 5 - Wednesday

A morning sail brings the vessel to La Digue, a sleepy island community where ox-carts and bicycles still remain the most common mode of transportation throughout the island.

La Digue is home to the endemic Seychelles Paradise Flycatcher, and is perhaps most famous for its massive granite boulder formations at Anse Source d'Argent, which is thought to be the most photographed beach on earth. Explore the entire island by bicycle, perhaps stopping by Union Estate, a sprawling network of traditional island activities, including a copra mill, vanilla plantation, and shipyard.

Day 6 - Thursday

In the morning disembark at Curieuse for a visit of this virtually uninhabited island. Experience the island's vast mangrove forests and its giant tortoise farm, along with the historic ruins of this former leper colony. After a barbecue lunch on the island, enjoy an array of water sports or simply relax and enjoy the island's beautiful beach and turquoise waters.

In the afternoon, sail towards the tiny, picturesque granite outcrop of St. Pierre. It is an excellent site for snorkelling and diving, with the nooks and crannies of its granite boulders teeming with marine life. Sail to Anse Lazio, one of the most beautiful beaches of Praslin, and arguably, all of Seychelles - a perfect place for water-sports.

Day 7 - Friday

After breakfast the vessel begins its sail towards Mahe, anchoring in the Ste Anne Marine National Park with its cluster of lush granite islands for an afternoon of water-sports and diving. Overnight at Ile Seche.

Day 8 - Saturday

Early morning sail to the Inter-Island Quay. Disembarkation at the Inter-Island Quay at 08.30hrs.
