Destination Arrival Departure
Victoria, Seychelles

Victoria, Seychelles 02/08/2023

Discover Mahé, the main island of Seychelles and also the largest of the archipelago, home to the capital Victoria. Mahé has almost 70 beaches of fine sand, framed by the emblematic granite rocks, and whose crystal-clear waters are renowned for their rich underwater life. The island is also famous for its splendid mountain panoramas accessible on hikes, such as the Morne Seychellois, which is 905 metres high and overlooks the Indian Ocean. Mahé is also an island full of history where fine colonial properties rub shoulders with Creole houses — and don't forget the marvellous Botanical Gardens in Victoria.,

Curieuse, Seychelles

Curieuse, Seychelles 02/09/2023

Situated off the coast of Praslin, Curieuse has a distinguishing feature: its red earth. Discovered in 1768 by the French explorer Marc-Joseph Marion du Fresne, it was ravaged by a fire in 1771 and then home to a leper colony of which a few vestiges still remain. Declared a national marine park in 1979, it is home to many underwater species, which can be discovered while scuba diving or snorkelling in the idyllic waters of the Indian Ocean. But above all, Curieuse is renowned for the hundreds of Aldabra giant tortoises that live there. It is highly likely that you will get the chance to meet these fascinating reptiles. Along with Praslin, it is also the only island on which the sea coconut grows wild.,

Aride, Seychelles

Aride, Seychelles 02/10/2023

Situated some forty kilometres away from Victoria, Praslin is the second-largest island in Seychelles. Its idyllic beaches where granite rocks nestle in immaculate sand correspond perfectly to how we imagine Seychelles to be. They invite visitors to dive into the turquoise waters, which are ideal for snorkelling. In the centre of the island, hidden in the heart of the stunning tropical rainforest, lies the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In this veritable plant sanctuary, several endemic species of palm trees can be observed, as well as the famous sea coconut, which can weigh up to 20 kg and is sometimes called "coco fesse" because its shape calls to mind a pair of buttocks., Aride is an island in the Seychelles situated a few kilometres north-west of Praslin. Listed as a nature reserve, this pearl of the Indian Ocean will seduce you with the beauty of its landscapes of wild cliffs and fine-sand beaches. Protected from human impact and sometimes called "bird capital", it is home to several endemic plants as well as exceptional wildlife. Most notably, it is the refuge of an impressive number of seabirds (Seychelles magpie-robins, terns, noddies, and more) and reptiles, such as Wright's skinks, which can be found in the island's wooded areas. Sea turtles can also be observed on the island's beaches.,

Poivre, Seychelles

Poivre, Seychelles 02/11/2023

At some 200 km south-west of Mahé, discover Poivre Atoll, a small paradise that is part of the Amirantes archipelago in the Outer Islands of Seychelles. Consisting of two coral islands, Poivre Island and Île du Sud, separated by a small lagoon, it owes its name to Pierre Poivre, the Mauritius intendant who introduced spices to Seychelles in the late 18th century. Once used for coconut plantations, Poivre Atoll is now focused on tourism. Visitors come here for scuba diving or big-game fishing in waters that are particularly rich and clean, where the marine life includes sea turtles.,

At Sea

At Sea 02/13/2023

During your day at sea, make the most of the many services and activities on board. Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation in the spa or stay in shape in the fitness center. Depending on the season, let yourself be tempted by the swimming pool or a spot of sunbathing. This day without a port of call will also be an opportunity to enjoy the conferences or shows proposed on board, to do some shopping in the boutique or to meet the Ponant photographers in their dedicated space. As for lovers of the open sea, they will be able to visit the ship's upper deck to admire the spectacle of the waves and perhaps be lucky enough to observe marine species. A truly enchanted interlude, combining comfort, rest, and entertainment.,

Assumption, Seychelles

Assumption, Seychelles 02/14/2023

Assumption Island is part of the Aldabra group (Outer Islands), situated in the south-west of Seychelles. Discovered in the mid-18th century by the French captain Nicholas Morphey, this bean-shaped island covered in dunes and shrubs is relatively flat. A handful of people live there in a small village in the island's west. The island's beaches are a major egg-laying and breeding site for sea turtles. The surrounding waters are ideal for scuba diving. This is where Jacques-Yves Cousteau filmed some of the scenes for his famous documentary film "The Silent World", released in 1956.,
02/14/2023 02/14/2023
Cosmoledo

Cosmoledo 02/15/2023

The Cosmoledo Atoll owes its nickname, the Galápagos of the Indian Ocean, to the beauty of its underwater world, which attracts the most experienced divers: parrotfish, giant rays, and clams inhabit the reefs of its crystal waters. The fascinating marine life comes alive as the multi-coloured fish, making the most of the protection of the extraordinary coral reef, come together to feed in the currents formed by the sweeping movements of the tides. Exploited in the past for coconut and agave, the atoll is now uninhabited, apart from an eco-resort in the heart of the nature reserve, which shelters green turtles and significant colonies of sooty terns and red-footed boobies.,
02/15/2023 02/15/2023
Astove, Seychelles

Astove, Seychelles 02/16/2023

Closer to Madagascar than to Victoria, Astove is the southernmost island in Seychelles. It is part of the Aldabra group in the Outer Islands. Now uninhabited, this coral island covered in coconut trees was once home to the employees that worked on the coconut plantations. Renowned for the richness of its seabeds, Astove Atoll is now a top destination for fishing enthusiasts. It also attracts experienced divers, who visit the atoll to explore the "Astove Wall", where the sea floor drops to a depth of about 40 metres. The wall is covered in coral and many fish and green sea turtles can be found there.,

La Digue, Seychelles

La Digue, Seychelles 02/19/2023

La Digue Island is a veritable concentration of all the beauty of the Seychelles. Located 6 kilometres south-east of Praslin, this small piece of land that looks like paradise is the third-largest island in the Seychelles, despite its modest size (5 km by 3 km)! Turquoise waters just asking you to swim in them, lush vegetation sheltering giant tortoises, beaches of fine sand fringed with coconut trees and surrounded with those emblematic large granite rocks with their pink highlights like at the famous Anse Source d'Argent: the perfect picture postcard... Authentic and preserved, the island follows a peaceful rhythm, with the only means of transport along its little roads being bikes or traditional oxcarts.,
