Live Availability & Online Bookings

The Seychelles, being outside the cyclone belt, is an ideal year-round destination with temperatures between 24C and 32C and a tropical climate.

Famous for  deserted  long white sandy beaches, towering granite rock formations, giant tortoises and the unique Coco De Mer palms, The Seychelles deserve their ‘Garden of Eden’ and ‘Paradise on Earth’ reputation. Largely pristine and uninhabited outside the main islands of Mahe and Praslin, this is a great destination for nature lovers with fascinating wild life, crystal clear turquoise waters  and some of the best snorkelling on earth. The sailing will suit experienced sailors, characterised by  predictable trade winds most of the year.

Our charter base in the Seychelles is in Baie Ste Anne, on the beautiful island of Praslin, Praslin Marina is a short distance from the airport, with domestic flight connections to Seychelles international airport on the island of Mahe. Praslin can also be reached by speed ferry in 50-60 minutes from Victoria, Mahe island. Speed ferry also connects Mahe with La Digue in 60 minutes.

Seychelles Yacht Charter

The Seychelles seasons are defined by two contrasting wind patterns, the trade winds, the north-westerly from December to March with warmer and sometimes wet weather, and south-easterly winds from May to September, which bring cool, dry and sometimes windier weather. The north–westerly winds become stronger as the sun rises, to up to 10 knots, peaking in January. The south-easterly trades are drier and blow throughout the day from 10 to 15 knots peaking in July and August occasionally reaching gusts of up to 30 knots. April/May and October/November are the months when the winds change direction bringing calm and windless periods. This is the time with the clearest seas and are best for diving and snorkelling.

The tides are between just under a metre and two metres and currents are below a knot, with the exception of the channels between islands where they may increase to two knots.

There are few limitations for mooring near their Marine Parks. The process is streamlined and yachts can arrive and anchor in the specified marked zones. The Marine Park officials will then turn up to collect the landing fees, entry or overnight mooring.

Seychelles Stay Options

Sail & Stay
As a long haul destination, The Seychelles are ideal for a two centre sail & stay holiday allowing you to relax before flying home.

We can recommend:

Mahe island

The largest and most inhabited island with fantastic beaches, pristine forests to explore and fascinating wildlife including land dwelling giant crabs. There is a range of exclusive hotels and resorts on white sand beaches, but also some boutique and smaller hotels convenient for exploring Victoria, the island’s capital.


Whilst the second largest island of the Seychelles it is just 32 square kilometres and with a population of just 6,500 people, this is a great place to chill out. famous for the Valee De Mai national park with it’s giant ‘Coco de Mer’ palms, there is a selection of fine beach hotels to chose from.

La Digue

A gem of an island which most justifies the Garden of Eden characterisation of the Seychelles; la Digue is much quieter with a much slower pace of life and  a small choice of attractive hotels for a few days ‘away from it all’.
