Visit Silhouette Island, the largest of the granite islands in the Seychelles. Our adventure starts at St. Anne Marine Park and an excursion to Cocos Island. Explore La Digue and Cousin, then move on to Baie St. Anne, Curieuse, and St. Pierre before getting a taste of the famous Praslin. Cruise through the rarely visited Anse Major to Silhouette. Depart for Beauvallon’s Eden Island Marina, where you’ll finish off your adventure with more exploring, dinner, and relaxation.

Superior cabin upgrades available.

Day 1: Mahé – St. Anne Marine Park (navigation time: around 40 mins)

Boarding in Mahé late morning. Anchorage for the night at Saint Anne Marine Park.

Day 2: St. Anne Marine Park – Cocos Island (navigation time: around 4h 30 mins)
Cocos Island – La Digue (navigation time: around 35 mins)

Visit of the Saint Anne Marine Park islands, a beautiful spot to do snorkelling. After lunch cruise to Cocos Island which is made of large rocks with strange regular stripes carved by the sea. Cocos Island forms a beautiful sight with a great harmony of shapes and colours. Under the sea, the vision is equally attractive with thousands of fishes. Unforgettable snorkelling. Anchorage in front of the picturesque harbour of La Digue.

Day 3: La Digue

Rent a bike at La Digue (with extra charge) and visit this quiet and beautiful island. With its tracks winding under tall palm trees, houses with roofs of palm leaves, small coprah factories, fine white sandy beaches and large polished rocks, La Digue might be the most beautiful island in the Seychelles. No cars, only bicycles or carts drawn by oxen. Anchorage in La Digue harbour.

Day 4: La Digue – Cousin (navigation time: around 1h15mins)
Cousin – Baie St. Anne (Praslin) (navigation time: around 45 mins)

Visit the Vallée de Mai (with extra charge), a valley under UNESCO protection. A walk in the Vallée is enchanting. The path wanders in the near obscurity created by the enormous palm leaves of “Cocos de mer”. The trunks are 40 m high and sway gently in the breeze, making a strange rustling sound as they rub against each other. Anchorage in Baie St. Anne.

Day 5: Baie St. Anne – Grande Soeur (navigation time: around 45 mins)
Grande Soeur – Curieuse or Anse Petite Cour (Praslin) (navigation time: around 1h)
