SEYCHELLES DIVING HOLIDAYS

The Seychelles are one of the most beautiful island archipelagos on earth. The pace of island life is slow and relaxing, the islands lush and exotic and surrounded by turquoise blue waters, white powder sand beaches and coconut palms. Seychelles’s dive sites fall into three distinct regions. The more northerly Inner Islands, including Mahe and Praslin, sit atop a 70m deep plateau. Teeming fish life set against a backdrop of impressively sculptured granite rocks festooned with spongers and soft corals. Mahe’s long range’ sites include Shark Bank, Brissare Rocks and the wreck of the British Navy tanker Ennerdale, now lying in three parts with her stern & wheel house home to shoals of golden snapper and batfish. To the south east is a low lying chain of coral atolls, the Amirantes. Here you’ll find larger fish including sharks, barracuda, rays and groupers. There are caves, swim thoughts and shallow walls, such as The Drop at Desroches, where you will also find the only dive centre. The Outer Atolls lie over 1,000 km from the capital Mahe. Aldabra, the jewel in the crown, is the world’s largest atoll with 13 islands populated by giant tortoise. Here drift diving in the channels you might expect to see Green Turtles, Tiger Sharks and Mantas.
