Whether you are seeking a romantic getaway or an adventure under sail or under the water, Aqua-Firma’s new Online Island Guide to the Seychelles is the perfect start point to find out all that these islands have to offer.
There are more ways to explore this wonderful archipelago than you might imagine, including sailing from island to island via one of Aqua-Firma’s Bareboat or Skippered Sail Yacht Charters, combination Yacht & Lodge Safaris, relaxing in a Private Eco Island setting or by enjoying an action packed Whale Shark Research and Conservation Experience by scuba or by snorkel.
Aqua-Firma’s new online Island Guide has been specially designed by its team of Seychelles experts to help you decide which islands to visit and what to do whilst you are there. Activities described include diving, snorkelling, trekking, kayaking, bird watching or simply relaxing on one of the Seychelles’ stunning beaches. Not only that, but it also contains a wildlife and marine life guide to each island.
On land, there are more Giant Tortoises in the Seychelles than in the whole of the Galapagos. On Praslin Island, the Vallée de Mai contains the World’s largest nut, the Coco de Mer.
The Seychelles underwater oasis attracts tropical fish, dolphins, rays, and green and hawksbill turtles and remains one of the best places in the world to observe the elusive whale shark. There is an array of endemic bird species to be discovered too, including the endangered magpie robin, black parrot, paradise flycatcher, the pure white fairy tern and the magnificent white tailed tropicbird.
Whilst the island guide is a useful reference, you can skip a step by simply calling an Aqua-Firma Seychelles expert on 0844 412 0848 (local rates) or 01428 620012 to discuss your interests and let them come up with a proposed itinerary to suit you.
