    We really enjoyed this tour. It consists of snorkeling and swimming in beautiful beaches in Praslin, visiting adorable giant turtles, an additional trail exploring nature of the island and a nice lunch. The guide and his partner were kind and good spirited.

  • Praslin: Curieuse and St. Pierre Island Excursion

    2. Praslin: Curieuse and St. Pierre Island Excursion

    The Curieuse Marine National Park is a sanctuary to a big variety of flora and fauna. On the southern part of the island, you will discover a mangrove swamp that is traversed by a walkway for park visitors. The island is also known for its coco de merpalms, giant takamaka trees, and a large hawksbill turtle rookery. The area is also rich with several bird species, such as the rare Seychelles black parrot Coracopis nigra barklyi, a parrot found only there and on Praslin.

  • From Praslin: Cocos, Felicite & La Digue Islands Tour

    3. From Praslin: Cocos, Felicite & La Digue Islands Tour

    Get picked up from your hotel on Praslin Island in the morning, then set off on a speedboat adventure to discover some of the most stunning islands in the Seychelles archipelago. First, arrive at Cocos - an idyllic isle bathed by crystal-clear waters with exceptional snorkeling opportunities. Swim amid turtles and hundreds of fish above a wealth of coral. Next, head over to Félicité Island - a small heavily forested granite island that forms part of a protected marine park. Enjoy plenty more opportunities to snorkel and swim here, whilst taking in the breathtaking natural scenery.  Finally, arrive at La Digue which offers the perfect mix of local culture and beautiful white-sand beaches. Admire the old Copra Mill used to produce coconut oil, an old cemetery, and the spectacular beaches. Visit Anse Cocos Beach, a quiet location on the Southside of the island. Then, head over to marvel a...

    A great day! ☺️ This is a day trip for those who wish to visit other islands, but in their own tempo. There is no official guide all the time with you, but a super friendly driver picks you up and drives you to the beach from where you start your journey on the boat. The boat driver speaks also good English and will adapt to your wishes and needs - we chose to snorkel around two little islands (btw Felicite is absolutely stunning) and then to spend approx. 5 hours on La Digue. That Anse Source D'Argant Totally worth it!

  • Praslin: Vallée de Mai and Anse Lazio Beach Full-day Tour

    4. Praslin: Vallée de Mai and Anse Lazio Beach Full-day Tour

    After pickup from your hotel, head to the renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve. This extraordinary ancient forest commonly known as the "Garden of Eden", is a unique habitat where the coco de mer palm grows in its natural state. The reserve is also home to one of the world’s rarest birds, the Black Parrot. In the afternoon, explore Anse Lazio, considered one of the top 10 beaches in the world. There are a few restaurants at Anse Lazio where you can buy lunch. You will be dropped back to your hotel at 4:00 PM.

    We had a great day during our tour on Praslin. Our tour assistant was very welcoming and offered us lots of helpful information about the places we’ve seen and also about the inhabitants of the island. We first went to Vallee de Mai, where our lovely tour guide, Jana, sorted our entrance and she joined us a few meters into the national reserve to explain a few things about the famous coco de mer. She then let us go see the park by ourselves and we felt a bit lost, especially since we’ve seen other groups being joined by their guides inside the park. We then headed to Anse Lazio where we spent time swimming, taking pictures, walking on the beach barefoot and just enjoying the beauty of this place. The only recommendation I can give is to ensure that the group has a guide when visiting the Vallée de Mai. We would have paid for one gladly if we would have been told that the guide is not included. We enjoyed our day on the island and it was because of our lovely guide. Thanks!

I can greatly recommend this tour, also over other similar tours done to St Pierre (without having done them for sure) due to the voice of snorcheling locations. We had the “luck” that it was raining in the morning and the owner asked who actually wanted to go nevertheless or postpone or refund which I find very nice instead of “forcing” everyone to go. Since it was our last day we ended up going with only one other couple and the weather also cleared up. We went swimming once and snorcheling twice at great locations. We actually did NOT go snorcheling at St Pierre itself like many other boats, since there it is more or less a dead reef with some fish as we could see with the glass boat when having a short stop there. In our locations we actually were the only boat.

We really enjoyed this tour. It consists of snorkeling and swimming in beautiful beaches in Praslin, visiting adorable giant turtles, an additional trail exploring nature of the island and a nice lunch. The guide and his partner were kind and good spirited.

The driver (Reynold) was on time, he was a very honest and nice guy. They took us to a beautiful place for snorkeling despite the wind. Curieuse Island was wonderful and the barbecue was excellent. We really recommend it !!

Absolutely fantastic!! Worth every penny!! We are so glad we took a chance and did this!! You won't regret it..... don't hesitate!
