If you've ever thought about learning to dive, but have never been able to dedicate enough time to a course during your free time, then our cruises could be the perfect opportunity for you!
The Seychelles archipelago offers an ideal learning environment for first-time divers. The islands' small size and close proximity to each other allows us to access suitably shallow dive sites for instruction, in calm conditions all year-round. In this way, the vessel provides an all-in-one platform for accommodation, transportation and holiday activities, in addition to serving as a floating classroom for more personalized teaching and guidance as part of a diving course.
To Book a Dive Course: Whether or not you've already booked one of our cruises, for planning purposes it's advisable to contact your travel agent/tour operator to confirm your interest in doing a dive course prior to your cruise. You can also contact us directly using the form on this website. This will better ensure that our dive instructor is properly equipped and supported to manage the programme for all interested divers during the week.
We offer the following courses and services:
PADI Certification Envelopes (PIC envelope) and PADI Log Books are available for sale onboard. For more information about our courses and rates, please contact us.
All of our cruises include complimentary equipment for kayaking, stand up paddle boarding (SUP) and snorkelling (masks and fins). We also offer the opportunity to enjoy traditional bottom-line fishing in certain areas, with our chef ready to prepare fresh Seychelles-style sashimi or grilled fish in the event of a successful catch.
For Sailing enthusiasts the Sea Shell and Sea Pearl offer the opportunity to sail on traditionally rigged Dutch topsail schooners, whereas Sea Star and Sea Bird feature a modern furling system home decor ideas.
Each day onboard presents a new opportunity to explore isolated bays and coves, colourful marine parks, and protected nature reserves or uninhabited islands. Spotting the incredibly rare Magpie Robin and other endemic birds, visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Vallee de Mai, or getting up close and personal with a giant tortoise, are just a few of the many special experiences that await on the islands we visit.
