St.Anne Marie National Park

Meet & greet upon your Arrival Seychelles airport. You will be met by our representative who will transfer you to the hotel. Check in into the hotel.  St. Anne Island is the centerpiece of this beautiful marine park, and nearby Moyenne, Round, and Cerf are just as scenic. During World War II St. Anne served as a base for a contingent of Royal Marines stationed there to defend the port of Victoria in the event of an enemy attack. In the early 19th century, the area was a busy whaling port. Today, cruising in St. Anne Marine National Park is a delightful foray into the wonders of Nature, with superb snorkeling and swimming, and a number of restaurants where you can dine out and savor the local cuisine.

Curieuse Island

After Breakfast at hotel. St. Anne Island to Curieuse Marine National Park - 40 nm. A northwest or southeast wind will provide an ideal point of sail for your open-water passage from the coast of Mahé to the group of beautiful islands to the north. Balmy winds and gentle seas are typical in the Seychelles, just one of many reasons why this destination in the Indian Ocean is so popular. You'll pass to the west of Praslin Island, then turn east to reach the scenic anchorage of Baie Laraie, a cove with excellent protection in northwesterly winds. There are a number of attractions ashore, including a tortoise farm and a museum. The snorkeling and scuba diving is superb in these waters.

On the east side of the island is Grande Anse, a spectacular beach for swimming and snorkeling. Later in the afternoon sail to the secluded anchorage at Anse Coco at La Digue Island.

Coco Island

After Breakfast at hotel. La Digue Island to Ile Coco Marine National Park - 7 nm. A sail to the Cocos is a must on any Seychelles itinerary. The sheer beauty of the park, with Coco Island at its center and three islets nearby, is breathtaking even by Seychelles standards. The snorkeling is some of the best anywhere. After spending the day exploring the Cocos, sail back to La Digue Island, this time to La Digue Island Harbour.
