Reef Safari

Discover the wonders of the St. Anne National Marine Park, Seychelles
Set-Sail aboard Anahita as you head off to discover Mahé’s inner islands. Next, hop aboard a semi-submersible vessel as you dip
below the waves to explore the depths of the Marine Park. Enjoy feeding the tropical fish surrounding the boat and then get up close and personal with the creatures that inhabit the park’s colourful coral gardens for a refreshing snorkel or swim.
 
Be treated to a BBQ lunch and musical entertainment before heading ashore Moyenne Island. Visit the island on-foot as you get to meet the Giant Tortoises that freely roam here, as well as visit old ruins and pirate graves – or simply relax on the island’s private beach.



 

Black Parrot - Praslin & La Digue 

Join an unforgettable action-packed, full-day guided tour of two of Seychelles most enchanting islands, Praslin and La Digue, to experience their unique character and their breath-taking natural beauty. 

Discover two of Seychelles' favourite islands on this full day adventure
Praslin, Seychelles’ second biggest island is sparsely populated and offers magnificent coastal, mountain and forest scenery. The island is home to the Vallée de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the endemic home of the Coco de Mer palm and the rare Seychelles Black Parrot.

Included in your Praslin adventure is a delicious Créole lunch.
 
On the historically and culturally rich La Digue, a true island experience is guaranteed. Visit the quaint and picturesque harbour and La Passe village, experience fine examples of Créole architecture, visit historical sites such as L’Union Estate, the Copra Mill and – of course – visit the world famous beach, Anse Source d’Argent, the most photographed beach in the world with its unique granite scenery.

Arrive at the quaint and picturesque harbour before setting off on a leisurely guided tour through the village of La Passe and along the narrow island streets and pathways to the historic L’ Union Estate.

Northern Mystery

Explore the untouched splendour of Mahé’s north coast as you enjoy a guided hike through the Morne Seychelles National Park. (Or you can skip the hike and set sail to meet the group at the end of the trail).
 
The easy going 1 ½ hour hike takes you along a palm fringed path that meanders across the heights of the rocky coast, in between giant granitic boulders and lush deposits of forest. The walk ends at the beautiful and secluded Anse Majore bay where Anahita awaits.
 
For those that would prefer a more leisurely outing, you can choose to board Anahita in Victoria and enjoy a sail to Anse Majore, soaking in the splendour of Mahé from the sea.
 
Leaving Anse Majore by boat, Anahita will cruise to the secluded bay of the Baie Ternay National Marine Park. Here guests can continue swimming, snorkelling, sunbathing or feeding the fish in this natural aquarium. A delicious BBQ  lunch will then be served on board, before Anahita begins the gentle cruise back to Victoria.
