Seychelles: Whale Watching

Book your ticket to paradise

Despite a considerable number of resident species, including dolphins, there are no organized whale watching excursions in Seychelles. However, snorkelers, divers and boaters often encounter the gentle giants of the shark world, whale sharks. These gigantic creatures enjoy lazing near the surface and are not typically bothered by nearby humans, although anyone in the water should remain a prudent distance from the sharks' huge, sweeping tails.
