Mahé Travel Guide


What better way to enjoy an island nation than to hop from one island to the next on a sailboat? Offering visitors the ultimate way to experience the diversity and beauty of the archipelago, a trip on a chartered boat can last a day or a week. Most trips leaving from Mahé will sail around the island itself, anchoring at snorkel spots, and including a bit of actual sailing at some point in the journey (wind providing). Diving, kayaking, and waterskiing may also be offered on your cruise. A week-long live-aboard is a truly special experience—itineraries vary depending on the time of year and sea conditions.

Silhouette Cruises. Offers day- or week-long excursions on a fleet of beautiful liveaboard vessels, including a special whale-shark trip from October to November. Victoria, Mahé. 432–4026 or 251–4051.
