Embark with PONANT on an expedition cruise to discover the most beautiful islands of the Seychelles. This 13-day itinerary aboard Le Jacques-Cartier will be an opportunity to discover little-known places of breathtaking natural beauty and an original fauna and flora.
Leaving from Victoria, the archipelago’s capital, fall under the spell of the idyllic landscapes, with their exceptional flora and fauna.
In Praslin, don’t miss the chance to visit the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve. There you will find sea coconuts, gigantic fruits with a very evocative shape, nicknamed the “love nut”.
You will discover the island of Aride, an unspoiled delight of the Indian Ocean, home to thousands of birds including some endemic species.
During your cruise, you will have many opportunities to dive or snorkel, notably in Poivre, Assomption, Astove, and at the heart of the sublime coral reef in the Alphonse lagoon.
Another highlight of your trip will be the port of call at Cosmoledo. This magnificent atoll owes its nickname, the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean, to the beauty of its unique underwater world. Diving in this paradise lagoon becomes an extraordinary experience.
Before you return to Mahé, Le Jacques-Cartier will chart a course for the coral island of Desroches and the sublime beaches of La Digue, some of the most renowned of the Seychelles.
