Day 01: Following a welcome drink on the fly deck, get acquainted with the cabins on your floating home for the next few days. Head to Sainte Anne Marine National Park, spread across six coral islands situated off the coast of Mahé. Learn about this former WWII naval base and the island’s whaling history. See seagrass, endemic species of mosses and lichens, and a variety of coastal shrubs, all complementing the turquoise blue waters around. You might come across green and hawksbill turtles wandering about. Snorkeling over the colorful coral reefs replete with fascinating marine life, expect to spot bottlenose dolphins, pipefish, eagle rays and more. Swim in the natural plunge pools, and taste fresh Creole seafood specialties at the restaurants on Moyenne Island. Day 02: Spend this day at Cousine Island, a sea and island reserve accessible only by small boat. Explore this former coconut plantation that has transformed into an exotic ecosystem of lush mangroves and freshwater swamps. Originally created to protect the Seychelles warbler, the island is now home to several bird colonies, especially sunbirds and songbirds. Spot bulbuls, fruit pigeons, and black parrots among other rare birdlife here. Retire for the night while anchored at Anse Lazio, Praslin or Curieuse. Day 03: Rise and shine early to visit Curieuse Island just northwest of Praslin. Ushered by rows of ornamental Coco de Mer palms, notice the characteristic red-colored soil. Amble on the boardwalk passing by several species of mangroves that are breeding grounds for the giant Aldabra tortoises. You can swim with giant lump-head parrotfish at Laraie Bay.

Bask in the sun on silky beaches fringed by lofty palms and granite boulders, or snorkel and scuba dive among the coral reefs. Day 05: Hit the spectacular coastline of La Digue, and explore the lively island on bicycle, ox-carts or horseback. Stroll about in the Veuve Nature Reserve to spot the endemic Seychelles paradise flycatcher. Visit Anse Source D’Argent, the world’s most photographed beach, and hike up jungle-covered hills to enjoy panoramic vistas of Seychelles from Bellevue and Nid d’Aigle viewpoints. Soak in the colonial charm in town, and spend time browsing the cozy boutiques and people watching. Settle down with tropical sundowner drinks, and savor local Creole cuisine at the eateries.
