Seychelles Cabin Charter
Dreaming of sailing in the Seychelles Archipelago, feeling the breeze on your face and the hot sand under your hands? With us it will become true!
The Seychelles is an otherworldly archipelago located in the Indian Ocean , between 4 ° and 10 ° south of the Equator. We will sail between the islands of Seychelles where safe anchorages and short distances open up a world of natural beauty, crystal clear waters and breathtaking scenery almost untouched by man.
The island nation is made up of 115 diverse isles set like gemstones in an azure sea. These pristine islands fall into two distinct groups including the Inner and the Outer Island Groups and almost all of them are outside the cyclone belt . The 41 granitic Inner Islands cluster around the three principal islands of Praslin, La Digue and Mahe with two coral islands in the Inner Island Group.
The cruise will take around the main islands of the Inner Island group, Mahe and Praslin. Both granite islands are surrounded by clear waters, fringed by white sand beaches and spectacular coral colonized by a variety of types of fish not found anywhere else on earth.
Mahe / St. Anne
Welcome in the our office, the beatifull Eden Marina, from 10 am. Breafing and check in on board from 2 pm.
St. Anne Marine National Park – 5 nm. Set sail from our base in Providence, on Mahé Island, for a quick passage to your first adventure in the Seychelles, a visit to a cluster of small islands that offer superb snorkeling on the coral reefs and a chance to see the green and hawksbill turtles in their element. The beautiful beaches and the restaurants on some of the islands in the park are popular among sailors.
Praslin - Curieuse
Hues of red and green color Curieuse Island, the result of the bare red earth of the hillsides intermingling with the unique green flora of an island peppered with coco-de-mer trees, one of the iconic symbols of Seychelles.
You will be greeted to the sight of multitudes of giant hump head parrot fish and giant tortoises lazing near the rangers’ headquarters. The trail from Baie Laraie to Anse José passes through thick mangrove forest and is one of the most breathtaking sites on the island. On the way can be found the ruins of the leper colony, now well blended into the landscape.
Aride – La Digue
Aride, perhaps the most unspoiled of all the islands is as the ‘seabird citadel’ of the Indian Ocean. It also boasts one of the densest populations of lizard on earth and unique endemic flora
La Digue is an island where time stands still and the friendly atmosphere of this intimate
island with its languid pace of life, traditional architecture and breathtaking beaches is an absolute must for visitors. The picturesque satellite islands are ideal for snorkeling and diving. Overnight stay in the main Marina.
La Digue (Los Coco)
Take some time off to relax or go on optional sea and land excursions before we set sail off to La Cocos, an unspoiled island approximately 7km north of La Digue. It has been a marine park since 1996 and is a spectacular spot for snorkeling and diving.
Praslin (Vallee de Mai and St Anne)
Praslin is the site of the fabulous Vallée de Mai, one of Seychelles’s two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, at one time believed to be the original site of the Garden of Eden. The Ste Anne Marine National Park is an important part of the natural and cultural heritage of the Seychellois people and is frequented by green and hawksbill turtles and bottlenose dolphins.
Praslin (Anse Volbert and Ste Pierre)
One of several islands in the bay of Côte d'Or on Praslin, this tiny islet with its granite profile interspersed with coconut palms has come, over the years, to represent the quintessential Seychelles island. A firm favourite with swimmers, snorkellers and sailors, this island provides the perfect backdrop to a spectacular Seychelles sunset.
Couisin and Mahe
Cousin is one of nature's treasure troves and home to an abundance of birds, giant tortoises and a nesting site for hawksbill turtles. Late afternoon return to the harbor at Mahe, one of the larger islands with a population reflecting Seychelles’ diverse ethnicity and decent. Night on Board in Eden Village Marina.
Day 8 Mahe
Disembarking in the morning within 9 o'clock.
Note: The route is only an indication and subject to weather, availability of moorings and is at the discretion of the crew and dictated by the skipper.
The Lagoon 400 has been completely refreshed and focused on both comfort and speed
The hardtop canopy (which is angled slightly upwards as it moves aft) comes standard and it, and the increasingly more square coachroof, show the new evolution of the Lagoon lines.
The cockpit is free of lines, offers great storage under the seats and is completely dedicated to relaxation and entertaining.
The saloon and galley area is spacious, light, airy and offers plenty of headroom. The galley is aft on starboard with the signature Lagoon pass-through window to the cockpit. Lots of countertop space surrounds the cooktop and sink. An eye-level oven is placed in the starboard corner above the counter and a microwave is above that.
The light varnish finish and lots of use of white and grey accents add to the general feeling of airiness. Sliding hatches/doors provide privacy to the cabins below. Hull windows and opening ports provide lots of light and air. Semi-island, queen sized bunks provide easy access all around so there is no crawling over anyone else to get in or out.
The owner’s version offers a small office amidships and a separate stall shower in the bow on starboard. It’s the living space on the Lagoon 400 that leaves a lasting impression. It definitely feels like a boat half again her size and the smooth transition between the cockpit and the saloon speaks to indoor/outdoor living that cruisers love.
