Best Snorkeling In Seychelles

Seychelles archipelago is home to some of the most colorful coral reefs in the world. Due to pleasant water temperatures throughout the year, islands in Seychelles offer best snorkeling opportunities in the Indian Ocean. These calm waters shelter plenty of marine species where animal life reveals its true spectacle. Dry season is the best time to enjoy snorkeling in Seychelles for travelers.

Seychelles Snorkeling Tours

Nearly half of Seychelles’ territory is protected as marine reserves. With over 115 islands, Seychelles has enough changes of pace to keep travelers busy indefinitely. The sought-after beaches on the islands of La Digue, Mahe, and Praslin are at the top of any visitor's wish list. Snorkeling opportunities in Seychelles vary depending on which islands you visit.

Popular Spots for Snorkeling in Seychelles

White sandy beaches, bathed in warm aqua waters, on La Digue and Praslin islands have excellent snorkeling spots as well as glass bottom boats to encounter marine life. On Mahe Island, Anse Royale and Port Launay Marine Park are premier snorkeling spots in Seychelles. Bel Ombre, Anse Diri, and Anse Major are worth making a 2.5-km walk through the Morne Seychellois National Park to enjoy snorkeling and diving. The best place for snorkeling on Praslin Island is Coco Island from Cote d’Or beach. Those looking to enjoy snorkeling in less crowded waters should explore Baie Ternay Marine Reserve and St Pierre in Curieuse Marine Park.

Divers can explore the shallow lagoons of Anse Royale and barrier reefs which are a little further out to sea and granitic seascape all along the coasts. The waters of Anse Royale are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, fishing, and paddle boarding. The best spots for snorkeling are near the rocks at Fairyland, where there are plenty of brightly colored coral fish. At either end of Anse Major beach, the granite rocks and coral reefs offer ample opportunities for snorkeling. The reefs are well preserved and full of marine life.

Ideal Time for Snorkel in Seychelles

Anse Soleil, Sainte-Anne Marine Park, La Digue, Félicité, and Desroches Island are popular spots for snorkeling in Seychelles. In the warm waters surrounding these islands, snorkelers can see a large number of fish species, from whale sharks to manta rays. A large number of tour operators organize half-day tours to these islands and marine reserves. The best time to visit snorkeling spots in Seychelles is in the early morning or late afternoon. Snorkeling is possible in these waters all the year round, with average water temperatures of 28°C. The shoulder seasons, from March to May and September to November, are the best periods for snorkeling.
