Diving in the sparkling blue seas of Seychelles:

As you will notice the Seychelles archipelago are world famous for their images of the granite boulders that give the islands a characteristic view. These sorts of boulders are also found under the water. On the dive sites which are exposed to the ocean, the current can get quite strong which always brings a stunning amount of marine life.

Seychelles is not a mass diving destination therefore diving groups are rather small and usually have a maximum of 6 people. Most of the time you are the only one diving at a particular spot which gives diving in the Seychelles an exclusive character.

The amount of fishes in Seychelles is impressive and breathtaking. There are different seasons all with different possibilities to encounter various species. All year round you will be able to see big groups of snappers, jack fishes; bat fishes and different kinds of sting rays in impressive sizes. Further more there are nurse sharks, white tip reef sharks, guitar sharks, grey sharks and mobula rays. The other underwater highlights that are often spotted are turtles, lobsters, scorpion fishes, bump head parrot fishes, napoleon fishes and & all tropical reef fishes that are common in the Indian Ocean.

Diving :

Dive Introduction, Kids Introduction, Regular Dive, Private Dives where you can charter the whole boat can be organised with the Diving Centre on Mahe Island. The dives are usually all around Mahe, dive sites are selected accordingly to divers experience & weather situation. Navigation times are between 20 & 50 minutes. The typical diving day is a two-tank dive trip.


Listed below are some of the top Diving sites.

Brissaire Rock: Situated mid way between Mahe & Praslin. A rock that comes out of the water in the middle of nowhere and therefore is exposed to all currents. An impressive amount of marine life with yellow snappers, fusiliers and Jack fishes. Regular encounters: reef sharks, whale sharks, sting rays in big groups, pelagics & hawksbill turtles (depending the season). Depth: 18 meters.

Particularities: Granite reef with hard coral formations.

Pinnacle point / Ile Seche: Just outside of the St Anne National Park lies Ile Seche which has many granite boulders on a wide spread area. Big groups of snappers, fusiliers as well as bump head parrot fish (up to 20 in one group), jack fish, whale sharks. During some periods there are big groups of eagle rays of 40 animals and more. Depth: 17 meters. Marine Regulations Apply.

Turtle Rock: Agglomeration of granite boulders on a wide spread area, normally done in two different dives, south of the St. Anne National Park in front of the Airport. All sorts of fish life can be found and occasionally visited by schooling pelagics, hawksbill turtles & reef sharks. Depth: 6 -11 metres.

Particularities: beautiful soft corals and several to swim through. Cannot be dived during south east monsoon.

L'ilot Island Island: L'ilot is a small granite Island at the northern eastern tip of Mahe and in the channel in-between the two islands you can find beautiful soft corals growing on the massive rocks. There are regularly reef sharks and whale sharks sleeping underneath the rocks and is frequently visited by turtles (depending on the season). Depth: 16 meters.

Shark Bank: this dive side lies relatively far from Mahe on its northern side on the way to Silhouette Island. Some deep blocks are the home of many tropical reef fish and regular sightings of sting rays in quite impressive sizes. Even if the name of the dive site promises different things, there are just a few reef sharks to be found along with jack fish, lobsters and barracudas. depth 18-30metres.

Particularities: The eagle rays here are simply huge. Advanced diving with the possibility of pelagic fish encounters. It is difficult to dive during North West monsoon.
