Full-Day Cousin, Curieuse, and St Pierre Islands tour. Start with a transfer to Baie Ste Anne jetty for the 2-km crossing to the Special Nature Reserve of Cousin island.

A warden leads the tour of the island with its abundance of species and habitats, from the coast with its protective mangroves, to the wetlands which attract dragonflies, moorhens, caecilans & Seychelles terrapins; on to the rejuvenated forest on the hill plateau which provides ideal nesting sites for large populations of shearwaters and bridled terns amongst its endemic trees - mapou, Indian mulberry and bwa sousouri. Endemic birds found on Cousin Island are the Magpie Robin, Sunbird, Fody, Blue Pigeon and the Warbler. The tour continues with a 30-minute boat ride to Curieuse Island, where a splendid BBQ lunch is served on the beach. Curieuse island has a large population of giant tortoises, some can be seen next to the natural pond on the coast, whilst the majority range across the island freely and can sometimes be tracked by their vociferate calls of intimate congress.

Perfect trip! It was a perfect match. Very nice snorkeling stops and the turtles are really amazing. The hike across the island is a bit strenuous but also worth it.
