Description:

Day 1 (Saturday):
After arriving at the Seychelles International Airport and taking the transfer to the Galatea, you will meet the captain and the crew for your cruise and set off to the north of Mahé by sea. The first dive will follow shortly thereafter at the north edge of Beau Vallon bay. The small granite island, Ilot, is the home of two coconut palm trees, and is surrounded by an incredible underwater world. After that, the boat sails further into Beau Vallon bay, enabling guests to see the beautiful sunset from the boats sundeck. Finally, the evening meal is served, and guests will spend the night in the same bay.

Day 2 (Sunday):
Following breakfast, during which guests can enjoy the view of the peaceful Beau Vallon bay, the first dive of the day will take place near to the lighthouse. The scenery here consists of imposing granite boulders and enormous coral formations. Once back on board, guests will sail further along to the Cap Ternay Marine Park, where a second dive of the day awaits. Here is also where you’ll have the opportunity to discover perhaps the most impressive coral formations that surround Mahé. Regain your strength thanks to the on-board lunch, before spending the afternoon relaxing on Anse au Riz. Sit back and relax or try out a spot of snorkelling on the beach, before spending the evening eating in the Marine Park, before heading off to bed.

Day 3 (Monday):
An early departure towards some of the calmer areas of shark-territory between Mahé and Silhouette awaits here. You’ll come face to face with an impressive landscape here, full of enormous granite boulders and a particularly colourful underwater world. The second dive of the day takes place near Brissare Rock, between Mahé and Praslin. In the early evening, the boat will arrive on La Digue, where guests can choose how to spend the rest of their day on board the ship.

Day 4 (Tuesday):
In the morning, guests can enjoy a visit to La Digue, the island where time stands still, and where traditions such as the ox-carts stand the test of time. The more traditional Seychellois architecture and the incredible beaches here, including the legendary Anse Source d’Argent, are an absolute must-see. Lunch will take place back on the boat, before you’ll sail to the southern top of Marianne island, the next diving spot on your tour. Pointy boulders here form an impressive underwater labyrinth, where, if you’re lucky, you’ll also be able to spot some grey reef sharks!

Day 5 (Wednesday):
On Wednesday morning, the boat will set sail for Grande Soeur and Petite Soeur in order to reach the two diving spots of ‘Sister Bank’ and ‘Coco Island’. Next, the boat will head for Praslin, the home of UNESCO World Heritage Site the Vallée de Mai. Here, you can discover an astounding variety of flora and fauna. After your visit, you’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful sunset on the Cote d’Or beach, before heading back to the boat for dinner and a wonderful night’s sleep in the lagoon.

Day 6 (Thursday):
‘Ave Maria’ is the name of the first diving spot of the day, right next to Praslin. Here, the enormous rocky formations surround a small island, forming vertical walls for you to swim through. The second dive of the day, at ‘White Bank’, isn’t far away. Later in the day, you’ll land on Curieuse for a beach barbeque, before heading back towards Praslin, where you’ll spend some time in Baie Chevalier, allowing you to relax on the breathtaking Anse Lazio.

Day 7 (Friday):
Early in the morning, you’ll be able to enjoy your final dive of the tour on the way back to Mahé. After lunch, you’ll have the chance to spend some free time in the Sainte Anne Marine Park. Finally, in the evening, enjoy a delicious fish dinner on board the boat.

Day 8 (Saturday):
Disembarkation at 8am.
