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.

    • Trip to Seychelles

      Only good experience we had in the resort which was extremely a class one. We chose to stay one day in Male hotel provided in the package was hotel. UNI INN which is pathetic. I strongly recommend not to stay there. Rude staff, very small (store room types room) which AC not working. No Lift and no drinking water. Your whole trip will become sad if you stay in this hotel even for 1 day. I was expecting travel agent to cordinate better for the flight as Air India told us at the checkin counter that flight is overbooked and they have provided us next day flight (1 day wasted) same happend in the return flight which got canceled and given us option for the next day flight.

    • Trip to Seychelles

      There was no coordination between dream travel agent and Indo jaya travel agency in Bali. Itinerary shared with me was different than shared with Indo jaya travel by dream travel agent. Most of the time I had to follow up with dream travel agent regarding difference in itinerary. Example: I booked snorkeling with lunch in my plan but Indo jaya informed that they didn't get any request from dream travel agent about this mean not in their itinerary. I had to personally call dream travel agent on that and wait for some time even we have reached to activity place. I felt bad that day. Itinerary was not as per final quotation and they had changed without informing me and without any follow up. I felt that I could have plan it in much more better way than dream travel agent. Thanks

      Hi, This was our first trip through Travel Traingle with Youngistan traveller's as our travelling partner. Our travel agent Saif was in constant touch with us right from the beginning even when we were deciding on our holiday location. He was available at any given time and was very helpful. After zeroing down on Seychelles as our honeymoon destination, Saif took care of the flight and hotel bookings, land transfers, jetty bookings etc and also suggested us sightseeing options. It was a very comfortable and hassle free trip wherein we did not even had to contact Saif even once for any mismanagement done on their part. A big Thank You to Youngistan traveller's and Saif for making our trip a memorable one. Looking forward to many such holiday's with you as our travel partner. Thanks, Amey Every part of our trip was special to us. Right from the ocean view hotel rooms to roaming around the islands and exploring the beautiful beaches and islands of Seychelles. A trip worth remembering for all the good reasons. Thanks again to Youngistan travellers and Saif too.

      Richa from Holiday Box made everything picture perfect and smooth. Everything was as per commitment. I was even provided with additional options on a very short notice and geniune price. Overall, I recommend travel triangle and holiday box, special mention to my travel arrangement partner Richa for her deep knowledge of the area and her insights. Just one future advice, Avani hotel in Mahe is not at all good. Terrible food taste paired with facility issues like improper air conditioning. My experience went completely against the reputation of this resort but then obviously I had to share this for the betterment. Every day was picturesque in Seychelles!

    • Trip to Seychelles

      Holiday box in its own arrogance claiming itself "India's no. 1 Seychelles experience curator" has missed basic details. Offering a two bed room hotel room with no doors to the bathroom literally blew my mind. Now imagine me, my wife and my brothers family staying there. While Seychelles has a wonder local rep in "CREOLE Services". Our day tours were booked with incompetent local guides who showed up nearly two hours late for the day tour pick up and stuffed 11 of us in a van that should seat a max of 8 ppl. The local guide telling us we had to buy our tickets while we had already paid holidaybox was the cherry on top. Also trying to reach Holiday box on phone was the hardest thing possible. They have really screwed up my family vacation.
