Seychelles Diving Holidays: An Overview
The Seychelles are a remote tropical paradise consisting of dozens of small islands scattered across a broad swathe of the Indian Ocean. The clear turquoise waters, extensive marine life and eco-friendly resorts make it perfect for a diving holiday.
The diverse marine environment of the Seychelles makes for brilliant diving, with the famous granite rocks providing wonderful underwater scenery and the pristine coral reefs are filled with exotic fish. There are chances to see Hawksbill and Green Sea turtles as well as the occasional dolphin or even whale sharks. Wrecks including the famous Ennerdale are home to eels, barracudas and a number of sharks. The calm waters mean there is normally good visibility and warm temperatures.
Above the waves, we know the best islands to stay on such as the private paradises of North Island, Fregate Island or the UNESCO world heritage site, Praslin. More than half of the Seychelles are set aside as nature reserves with many trails through the lush vegetation to explore - where you have the chance to see millions of sea birds or even giant tortoises.
