The trip starts at 9:30 in the morning local time on La Digue beside the small "Maki Shop” near Anse La Reunion.
Here, you will meet Jonathan or a member of his team at 9am and embark on your journey aboard the spacious motorboat. The boat comfortably offers enough space for 16 guests, and features a roof to protect you from the sun, as well as free soft drinks (water and lemonade).
Departing La Digue, you will pass parts of the island's north coast before arriving at the beautiful small island, Coco Island, about 25 minutes later, where one of the most beautiful snorkelling paradises in the Seychelles awaits you.Your guide will anchor right in front of the island, giving you the possibility to walk over to the island or go snorkelling right from the boat. The boat is also equipped with snorkelling equipment.
After exploring the underwater world and the small island, you will set sail for the island of Felicité, located just 10 minutes away. Again, a team member will bring the boat to anchor, but this time at a distance of around 200m. That said, you can still swim over to the island and discover the deserted, gorgeous sandy beaches that lie there. If you don't want to swim that far, you can also go on a different snorkelling tour right from the boat. The underwater world here is truly spectacular, and there is a good chance you'll see some sea turtles!
At around 13.00, the boat will arrive back on La Digue Island.
Jonathan is the founder of Liberty Charter, a tour provider based on La Digue. Liberty charter is a family-based company, and one of the best in the Seychelles.

This family-run company will be one of the best choices you make on La Digue. Jonathan has more than fifteen years' experience cruising the waters of these unique islands.
