Adventurous Yacht Charter in The Indian Ocean

A yacht charter in the Indian Ocean takes place in an exotic group of islands located about 1600 km off the East African coast. Known as Seychelles, these splendid islands are famous for their abundance of wildlife, coral reefs teeming with marine life, pristine white sandy beaches - and resorts with elegant casinos and a lively nightlife. The voyage is superb and offers a mix of open water passages and short trips between islands and their many idyllic coves. A sailing holiday in the Indian Ocean is a delight for all the senses.

Mahé and Praslin

Mahé and Praslin

Sailing in Mahé and Praslin Seychelles is located in a warm and relatively quiet part of the Indian Ocean - and covers approximately 3900 square kilometres. On a yacht charter here, you will sail between the inner islands - mainly between Mahé and Praslin, which are located relatively close to each other, making the passages between them easy and convenient. In this part of the world, the annual monsoon affects the weather and wind direction. The north-west monsoon season begins in November and creates north-west winds. There is more rain in this period compared the months of May to October - when the wind shifts more to the south-east from early April. Regardless of the season, the wind speed will usually be between 10 and 20 knots, and the temperature varies between 28 °C and 30 °C. Wind-driven currents change direction with seasonal winds and typically have a speed of just around a knot. However, in for example the narrow channels between the islands, currents can be very strong. The tidal range is from 4.5 to 5.9 feet. Like the wind-driven currents, tidal currents can be strong in narrow channels. A sailing holiday in Seychelles is within reach for sailors with basic skills in coastal navigation. Highlights of Mahé and Praslin A sailing holiday in Mahé and Praslin in Seychelles unfolds in an exotic and undisturbed part of the world - which makes the islands appealing to many sailors. Small secluded coves surrounded by majestic palms and the pristine white sandy beaches can be found on most of the islands - and just off the coast is breathtaking coral reefs in brown, orange, green and blue colours. Half the area of Seychelles is a natural park, created to protect the rare birds - the Seychelles nightingale, the black parrot and fruit pigeon, just to name a few. Giant Tortoises that are endemic to Seychelles and the Galapagos Islands can be seen sunbathing on the beaches. The number of natural wonders here is enough to make any sailing holiday in Seychelles a memorable trip. Beach Resorts, shops and fine restaurants can be found on several of the inner islands and add a touch of luxury to your experience of Seychelles.

Malé Atoll

Malé Atoll

Yacht Charter in Malé Atoll in the Maldives Malé Atoll is, like the other Maldivian islands, the top of an underwater mountain range. With an average height of 1-3 meters, the Maldives is the lowest country in the world. The islands have always been a welcomed sight for sailors, who have found shelter from the Indian Ocean here. The rich cultural diversity can be seen in everything from music to boat building - the music is often played on the local bodu beru, a bass drum, which is very similar to African drums. The Maldivian dhoni, a beautiful boat built by skilled local craftsmen, has a striking resemblance to a dhow, the traditional Arab sailing boat. So, if your definition of paradise includes a simple lifestyle, where the main problem is which paradise beach to anchor by today - and where the sky is always blue and the sun is shining, you will not be disappointed with the Maldives. You can visit the local fishing villages. The thousands of healthy coral reefs are some of the best in the world and offer fantastic snorkelling and diving experiences. You can also stop by uninhabited palm islands - or take advantage of the facilities at modern resorts. In short, the Maldives has all the ingredients for the perfect sailing holiday. Sailing in the Maldives The Maldives is blessed with tropical weather all year round - the temperature ranges between 22 °C and 33 °C. The islands are, like almost all other destinations in the Indian Ocean, subject to various monsoons, which influence the wind direction and the amount of rainfall. The south-west monsoon usually begins in June/July and brings the rain. The north-east monsoon from November to April results in dry weather and a weak wind. Sea breezes usually make temperatures more moderate, even on hot summer days. The tidal range is 2-3 meters. You can sail all year round - but the ideal time to visit the islands is between November and April, making it the perfect place to get away from the cold in the northern hemisphere. Highlights The Maldives is to many the perfect island paradise - and the ultimate destination for a dream sailing holiday. The combination of crystal clear water and underwater life, which is among the richest in the world, perfect uninhabited palm islands with white sandy beaches, modern resorts and welcoming locals – all of these will make your sailing experience an unforgettable experience.
