Things to Do

Diving

The Seychelles archipelago is reputed to be one of the top 10 diving sites in the world. Its clear, calm, and safe waters are also perfect for amateur divers. Its rich coral reefs are home to over 850 different species of fish and 100 species of shells. The best period for diving is between April and November. All scuba diving centers in the Seychelles are members of PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) and offer qualified dive masters and modern diving equipments. First-timers usually learn in either swimming pools or in shallow seawater. Each course warrants an internationally recognised certificate.

Minimum Age: 12 years. For more detailed information, please e-mail us : mhols@mauritius.com

Fishing

The Seychelles offers some of the richest fishing grounds in the world, a multi faceted and exciting fishing destination for amateurs and professionals alike. Enthusiasts arrive from all over the world to battle with world-record holding marlins, barracudas and sailfish. There are 40 different varieties of game fish in Seychelles rich waters, which include Dorado, Wahoo, Tuna, and Job fish. Fishing seasons are governed by trade winds. From May to September they blow from the southeast, which is great for Big Game Fishing.

However, the seas can sometimes be rough during this period. The Northwest winds blow from November to February and brings with it calmer seas, which is ideal for bottom fishing. In general the months of October and April are the most enjoyable due to its calm seas.

Cruising / Sailing

Seychelles is an all year round sailing location. Whether you prefer tranquility or adventure, you can taste the ultimate in freedom and enjoy the thrill of safely cruising the warm, turquoise ocean and discovering the pearls of Seychelles. From majestic catamarans & yatchs to pirate-style boats, from just a day’s cruising to a week’s voyage of discovery, we have what you’re after. Yachting is not only for the experienced sailor, it is possible to hire expert local crew who can show you the hidden beaches whilst you sit back and relax. For the more adventurous " bare back charters" are available.

Water Sports

Water Sports centres are located next to the big hotels and on the most touristy beach of Seychelles: Beau Vallon in the north of Mahe. However, motorised water sports are limited to Beau-Vallon beach only. This is a result of Seychelles’ strict environmental laws to protect the marine life.
