No visit to the Seychelles would be complete without a couple of nights on the main island of Mahé. Enjoy diving the unique granite topography, exploring the island and meeting the friendly locals.

Mahé is home to the nation’s capital, Victoria, as well as a population reflecting the diverse ethnicity of this Indian Ocean archipelago. The island is an extraordinary treasure trove of flora and fauna with its granite peaks and rare endemic plants including the jellyfish tree and vanilla orchid.

The majority of dive sites are located off the north coast, a few minutes boat ride away from Beau Vallon. The topography of the granite boulders and coral reefs, together with the scuttled wrecks, offer interesting dives for all abilities. Expect to see plenty of colourful reef fish, lobster, moray eels, eagle rays and stingrays, turtles, grouper, snapper. Long distance sites offer experienced divers the opportunity of shark encounters and schooling bumphead parrot fish, jacks and barracuda.

The Seychelles lie just south of the equator and are blessed with a year round tropical climate. The northwest trade winds (Oct-Mar) bring warmer and calmer weather, whilst the southeast winds (May-Sep) offer the best conditions for sailing.
