Know more about the Seatravel difference

Yacht Charter in the Seychelles and Mahé

The remote and pristine Seychelles are the jewels of the Indian Ocean - famous all over the world as a must-see destination for sailors. Almost half of this tiny island nation, located about 1600 km off the coast of East Africa, is made up of protected natural parks that help to preserve the beauty of the white sandy beaches, the teeming life of coral reefs and small uninhabited palm islands, which are home to rare species of birds. Here you will find the most photographed beach in the world: Anse Source d'Argent – with its pink sand, it is one of the reasons why Seychelles have been elected to have the most beautiful beaches in the world by the National Geographic Society.

A holiday aboard a sailboat in Seychelles offers incredibly beautiful secluded anchorages, impressive open water passages, stunning beaches, modern resorts and casinos in Mahé - and picturesque villages where ox-drawn carts are a common sight.

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.
