Seychelles Yacht Charters

Blessed by Mother Nature, the raw, perfect beauty of the Seychelles is virtually unparalleled. Its exquisite ribbons of white sands and coconut palms that fringe the sapphire seas, backed by forested wilderness, create the ultimate paradise destination where pure relaxation beckons you to the shores.

Encompassing two UNESCO world heritage sites, the 115 islands of the Seychelles are scattered across the Indian Ocean like precious jewels. Lying some 1,000 miles off the coast of Africa, the main island group consists of three islands; Mahé, Praslin and La Digue, each boasting breath-taking landscapes of green-swathed mountains, tranquil beaches and cascading waterfalls. Nature abounds throughout the idyllic shores, from unique exotic flora and fauna to nesting giant tortoises. Beneath the waterline is a kaleidoscope of colour with thriving coral reefs teeming with marine life, world-renowned snorkelling opportunities and dive sites to explore.


When To Go













Boasting many natural harbors and a year-round season, it is easy to see why the Seychelles has become a popular yacht charter destination alternative to the more crowded Caribbean. The two seasons run from May to October (south-easterly monsoon) and November to April (north-westerly monsoon) and the relatively short distances between the islands are perfect for hopping from one heavenly oasis to the next throughout your charter.

Regions Worth Highlighting



The most famous of the islands is the seductive and stylish Praslin, which plays host to a range of gourmet restaurants serving freshly caught fish with views of the tangled velvet jungle and curving hills that drop down into crystalline waters.

Peppered with distinctive fluted granite rocks and red-hued boulders, Praslin is also home to the Seychelles’ most popular beach Anse Lazio. Its swaying palm trees and jade green waters epitomize treasure-island paradise.


Home to the Seychelles capital, Victoria, which also happens to be the smallest capital in the world, Mahé is the largest island in the archipelago. Despite its size, Victoria is a vibrant hub of cosmopolitan energy amongst colorful markets selling exotic spices and fresh fruit

The local cuisine is a fusion of cultures, blending the best of Africa, Asia and European influences, and is a delight to sample in an alfresco dinner underneath a starlit sky.

Source d'Argent

An Indian Ocean paradise on the west coast of the island of La Digue, Source d’Argent is one of the most photographed beaches in the world, famed for its soft white sands framed by gigantic boulders and coconut palms.

No tour of the Seychelles is complete without visiting the spectacular beach at Source d’Argent, an idyllic stretch of pure white sand that has formed the backdrop to several films and commercials, not to mention countless Instagram photos.

Why Charter a Yacht in the Seychelles?

Tranquil Cruising Grounds

As a charter destination that has only recently acquired state-of-the-art marinas and government support, the Seychelles offers something totally fresh to even the most seasoned of travelers. With new experiences to be had on the water as well as on land, Seychelles charter guests can choose to enjoy tranquil cruising grounds or immerse themselves in the thriving island life found on Mahe and La Digue. Of course, there is also a host of new cuisine to try, with outstanding fine dining and local restaurants to be found throughout the region.

Appealing to the adventurous as well as those who just like to kick back, the Seychelles is the ideal place to try out any water toys stored away in your superyacht.

The expansive and private waters are also home to numerous dive spots, with many accessible to divers of all abilities. The inviting climate of the Indian Ocean means that those who prefer to simply sunbathe will be able to do so in supreme comfort.

Incredible Island Hopping

With 115 islands to visit, a Seychelles superyacht charter is naturally an explorer’s paradise. With some populated with attractions, and others totally uninhabited, there’s sure to be something to satisfy every kind of visitor. To get to the heart of the action, the islands of Mahe, Silhouette, Praslin and La Dique are home to a bustling local life that is underlined by healthy hospitality.

For those after something a little quieter, the lagoon at Desroches Island or the cluster of small islands around the St Joseph Atoll are certain to please. Thanks to well-positioned anchorages, many of the islands which comprise the Seychelles are accessible to every kind of superyacht.

Breathtaking Diving Spots

Whether you’re equipped with scuba gear or more sophisticated diving equipment, you’re bound to get the most out of it around the Seychelles. Located in the Outer Islands, the Farquhar Atoll is perhaps the most colourful dive location, with a vast array of marine life found at a relatively shallow depth.

Similarly, Francois Island enjoys environmental protection to allow visitors to get up close and personal to a vibrant range of underwater species. With angelfish, butterflyfish, and octopus all native to the waters of the Seychelles, it’s well worth diving in and exploring.

Exclusive Marinas

Accommodating the larger superyachts which have recently been drawn to the region, the Seychelles has a number of marinas and harbors which make visiting all the easier for those arriving on the water.

The largest of the marinas, Eden Island, is linked to the main island of Mahe by a short bridge. Capable of berthing yachts up to 115m in length, the marina provides convenient access and outstanding facilities to its visitors.

The sheltered port of Victoria, situated close to Mahe’s east coast, is also within a short distance from the charms of the capital city. Having recently attracted a number of impressive yachts, the port of Victoria is certainly worth checking out when visiting the Seychelles by crewed yacht charter.

When it comes to cruising away from the main islands, there are a number of bays along the various coastlines which form inviting spaces for comfortable anchorage.

Vibrant Island Culture

Renowned for colorful and vibrant festivals, the Seychelles are the place to be when it comes to music, dance, and food. With a range of events taking place across the year, visitors are likely to encounter some kind of celebration taking place in the course of their exploring.

Perhaps the largest of these events is the International Carnival of Victoria. Taking place over three days in February, there are many small parties which celebrate the various cultures which have made the Seychelles what it is today.

The whole region also gets swept up on June 29th when Independence Day is celebrated- expect street parties, all-day beach events, and a number of frivolities taking place out on the water.
