Seychelles: Sailing Activity Holiday
Book your ticket to paradise
Following in the ancient wakes of the first mariners to visit Seychelles, holidayers who choose to sail these islands will be enchanted. Cruising the warm, bluer-than-blue waters that separate the archipelago's 115 islands, you'll visit hidden coves and divine, white-sand beaches where your only competition for a sun-bathing spot will be a nervous resident sand-crab. Views of Mahé and Praslin's craggy, jungle-swathed peaks are stunning from the water, and you can't beat watching the multi-coloured majesty of an Indian Ocean sunrise or sunset from the deck of a gently rocking yacht or sailboat.
From pre-planned half-day or full-day trips to individually-tailored, multi-day itineraries with full catering, many options are available for sailing trips in Seychelles. Operators offer cruises, captained yachts and other boat rental plans so you can choose the Seychelles sailing trip that's right for you. Sailboat and yacht charters in Seychelles are not cheap, but the costs are much more reasonable when shared amongst a group travelling together.
Sailing charters in Seychelles allow you to visit the top beaches on the three main islands, as well as the untouched sands of many other islands in the archipelago. Curieuse is known for its population of giant tortoises, and coral islands like Bird and Denis shelter seabird colonies and nesting turtles. These islands are located at the edge of the shallow Seychelles bank where the ocean floor plummets and where world-class fishing, snorkelling and scuba-diving will impress the most well-travelled visitors. When it's dinner time, those on a sailing vacation in Seychelles can fry up their very own catch-of-the-day in Creole spices, or drop anchor and visit an al fresco terrace on-shore. Whatever the length of the journey, sailing holidays in Seychelles are a unique and unforgettable tropical getaway.
