Excursions in Seychelles Island
Let us transport you to another world: that of Praslins magnificent satellite islands and their stunning natural beauty. Your day begins as you ride the ocean waves to La Digues neighbouring island of Praslin, from where you will be whisked away to Sister Island, surrounded by sapphire waters, where a guide will introduce you to some of the islands secrets. After providing you with ample time to swim, snorkel or just relax on the beach, we will take you on board Oplezir for a Creole-style BBQ lunch as we head off at stunning Coco or spectacular Felicité Island before heading home.
Get the best of both worlds on this not-soon-to-be-forgotten expedition to the island where time stands still: Timeless La Digue. First, take to the ocean on a traditional, inter-island schooner, just like in days gone by when they were the only mode of transportation and make landfall at the scenic La Digue jetty where you will be greeted with refreshing coconuts, picked fresh from the palm. LUnion Estate awaits you with its languid, old plantation ways, charming architecture and ambiance of another time when the scents of coprah, the dried flesh of the coconut, and vanilla, filled the air. Your next port of call will be Anse Source DArgent, one of the planets most famous beaches, with its silver sands, sapphire waters and ancient granite boulders where there will be time to swim and relax. A scenic tour of the beaches of Anse Severe and Grand Anse follows where you can relax in the afternoon sun before heading home with indelible memories. Alternatively, from the moment of arrival at La Digue you can make your own personal voyage of discovery of the island by bicycle, exploring its winding and shady pathways at your leisure.
This is a great adventure for those young hearts with the first stop being at St. Pierre Island, a favourite with swimmers and snorkelers. You will then visit Curieuse island reserve, where you can admire the giant land tortoises and enjoy a one hour tour of the island, walking through the mountains and mangroves swamp to Anse Josee. The day continues with a mouth-watering BBQ lunch, served aboard the elegant Oplezir catamaran, before cruising to the stunning Anse Georgette beach for a photo stop and a refreshing swim. The trip will end with a scenic cruise along the North East coast of Praslin Island.
Enjoy the very best of both worlds: those of the ocean and one of Seychelles twin, UNESCO World Heritage Sites - the mysterious, primeval valley known as the Vallée de Mai. We will introduce you to the experience of a lifetime on a guided tour of this world-famous site where the legendary Coco-de-Mer, the double-lobed coconut in the form of a womans pelvis, grows in twilight beneath a towering canopy of palms. Fantastic legends and tales abound about this extraordinary place, once believed to be the original site of the biblical Garden Of Eden, that our guide will be happy to recount before you take to the ocean on Oplezir, - destination Anse Lazio, reputedly the worlds most beautiful beach. The experience of swimming and snorkelling in the crystal waters off this divine beach is one not soon forgotten and after an equally unforgettable BBQ in this fairy-tale setting, we will provide you free time.
This day of discovery will introduce you to the many treasures of SeychellesÂ´ underwater world that awaits you just beyond MahéÂ´s shores, in the crystal clear waters of the Ste Anne Marine Park. Commencing at Port Victoria, a glass bottom boat will take you to the marine park in style, affording you spectacular views of the port, nestled against the impressive backdrop of MahéÂ´s verdant mountains. On arrival in this pristine marine reserve we will take you on a Reef Safari into the realm of the turtle and octopus and a parade of colourful reef fish that you will be able to view from the comfort of your all-seeing, glass bottom, "eye in the water". Before you realise, itÂ´s fish-feeding time and your guide will supply you with all the bread youÂ´ll need to attract the attention of hoards of hungry fishes, only too eager to feed from your hand before experiencing a unique snorkelling adventure through the varied habitats of a dazzling coral reef. For your convenience, Creole Travel Services propose a choice of island venues, each with a distinct charm of its own. Whether Cerf or Moyenne Island will be your rendezvous for the day, you will first be given the chance to familiarize yourself with your surrounds or embarking on another reef safari in order to whet your appetite. At luncheon, a sumptuous Creole buffet served in the shade of towering tropical trees will restore your energies and leave you marvelling at this wondrous conspiracy of textures and flavours that represents the finest in Creole cuisine. The rest of your afternoon will be spent in typically "island style", strolling shaded island paths or basking on the silver sands of sun-drenched beaches - just steps away from a cooling dip in turquoise waters.
This full day tour provides an excellent introduction to the contrasts of Mahé and features breathtaking scenery combined with spectacular flora & fauna and pristine beaches.
