10 Nights: Various dates January - December

From £1,440 per person

Visit Silhouette Island, the largest of the granite islands in Seychelles.

Our Silhouette cruise starts at Sainte-Anne Marine Park with an excursion to Cocos Island. Explore La Digue and Cousin, then move on to Baie Sainte 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 11-day vacation.

The superior cabin offers a luxurious retreat to return to after you spend your days exploring.

Day 1: Mahé – Sainte Anne Marine Park

Board in Mahé late morning. Anchorage for the night at Sainte-Anne Marine Park.

Day 2: Sainte Anne Marine Park – Cocos Island – La Digue

Visit the Sainte-Anne Marine Park islands, a beautiful spot to snorkel. 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 fish. Unforgettable snorkelling. Anchorage is in front of the picturesque harbour of La Digue.

Day 3: La Digue

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

Day 4: La Digue – Cousin – Baie Sainte Anne (Praslin)

Visit Cousin Island. The island has been a nature reserve and bird sanctuary since 1968, with rare species and some giant tortoises. Have lunch onboard and spend your afternoon in Praslin. Visit the Vallée de Mai, a valley under UNESCO protection. 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 Sainte Anne.

Day 5: Baie Sainte Anne – Grande Soeur – Curieuse or Anse Petite Cour (Praslin)

On Grande Soeur, spend some time on one of the most beautiful beaches in Seychelles or take a walk to discover the island, water sports, and relaxation. Anchorage in Curieuse or Anse Petite Cour for the night.

Day 6: Curieuse – Saint Pierre – Anse Volbert or Anse Lazio (Praslin)

Curieuse is part of the Marine National Park, and more than a hundred tortoises live here. After lunch, Saint Pierre islet, a mass of rounded rocks crowned with a clump of tall palms swaying gently in the wind: typical and superb scenery of Seychelles photographed on countless occasions and printed a million times in tourism magazines! Excellent spot for snorkelling with magnificent underwater scenery. Anchorage for the night in Anse Volbert or Anse Lazio, Praslin.

Day 7: Anse Volbert or Anse Lazio (Praslin) – Mahé

Try your hand at water activities such as snorkelling on the beautiful beaches of Praslin. Navigation towards Mahé in the afternoon. Dinner and night off Anse Major.

Day 8: Anse Major (Mahe) – Silhouette

Anse Major on the Northwestern coast of Mahe is a very rarely visited and unspoilt place, accessible only for walkers and by boat. Departure to Silhouette after Lunch. Dinner and night off Silhouette.

Day 9 : Silhouette – Beauvallon

Silhouette is situated 30 km northwest of Mahe. Hills covered by tropical trees are reminiscent of Mahe, coconut trees at the beach side evoke Praslin and its incomparable beaches with its granite rock formations give the impression of being in La Digue. A trail through the lush vegetation reveals the beautiful and exceptional tropical foreSainte In the early afternoon, we head for Beauvallon Mahe. Dinner and night at anchor.

Day 10 : Mahé : Beauvallon – Eden Island Marina

Discover Beauvallon, a vast white sand beach, embedded in preserved nature. Time for relaxing, snorkelling, kayaking, and swimming. After Lunch, departure for the Eden Island Marina.
