This day of discovery will introduce you to many treasures of Seychelles’ underwater world that are waiting for you just beyond Mahé’s shores.

In the crystal clear waters of the Ste Anne Marine Park you board your catamaran and set sail on the tranquil water towards Moyenne Island. On reaching the reef the boat will slowly drift over the corals. Bread will be handed to all guests which can be used to hand-feed the fish. A short time will be given to snorkel within the marine park before continuing onto Moyenne Island.

A small island off the north coast of Mahé, Moyenne Island was purchased by the late Brendon Grimshaw, a former newspaper editor originally from Dewsbury in Yorkshire, England. Grimshaw was the only inhabitant until his death in July 2012 and the island can now only be visited as part of an organised trip. An approximate one hour tour of the island will allow you to appreciate why Grimshaw bought this uninhabited treasure, where nature and man can exists in harmony as emphasised by the 105 land tortoises you may meet roaming around freely.

All too soon, you will make the return boat journey back to Mahé and short drive to your awaiting ship.
