Diving the Remote Outer Islands of the Seychelles: Part I

  • Seychelles

  • Cocos Island
  • Rangiroa
  • Socorro Island
  • Seychelles

As the nights draw in, the temperature drops (we had a good run) and businesses start to compete for the best Christmas TV ad (move aside Elton, Waitrose's Stollen takes the crown), the festive season is upon us. So, naturally, we've decided to bypass all of that and look straight ahead to…
