Discover Mahé on our Wild South #CreoleAdventure, and enjoy an authentic islander's day out and about! We start off with a brief tour of Victoria, one of the world's smallest capitals, and tour the colourful bazaar, see the Little Ben Clock Tower, and indulge in the rich sights, sounds and scents of the Seychelles community.

The boat tour was really a highlight! The whole crew on board the catamaran was in a good mood and always had a joke up their sleeves. On the catamaran with about 35 guests there were 6 crew members and a cook who were available to answer our questions around the clock and made the tour unforgettable. After a short tour with the catamaran, we got on a ship, which was partly underwater like a submarine and thus gave an excellent view of the reef. This was followed by an hour of snorkeling near Moyenne Island. This was followed by the musical guitar playing and singing with percussion elements by the crew. I noticed Francis particularly positively, who was always beaming with joy and encouraging. He even brought drinks to some elderly guests who were lying in the sun in the nets at the front end of the catamaran and really cared that everyone had a memorable trip. I can only recommend the tour!

Superb trip. Everything was perfectly organized with a professional staff, attentive and very friendly. The buffet was delicious. The middle island tour and snorkeling at Ste Anne Marine Park were wonderful. I recommend !
