Yacht Charter in
the Seychelles

Sailing in the Seychelles

Charter a yacht in the Seychelles and see for yourself why this archipelago, made of 115 glistening tropical gems, is famously called "heaven on Earth". With the majority of islands lying outside the cyclone belt, the crystalline waters of the Seychelles will offer you the sailing experience of a lifetime.

With their numerous beaches, ranging from soft white sandy beaches to romantic secret coves and their calm, clear, turquoise waters, the Seychelles are also a great place for snorkeling and scuba diving.

Yacht Rental in the Seychelles

Charter a yacht in the Seychelles and explore the Inner Islands of the Seychelles with their three main islands: Mahé, Praslin and La Digue. These islands are the cultural and economic centre of the Seychelles and also the hub of tourism industry. Moorings here are safe and sailing distances are short, which means they are suitable for sailing beginners. You can also explore the other group of islands called the Outer Islands or the Coralline Seychelles. The Outer Islands are less visited due to their relative remoteness, but they also offer a very interesting, untouched scenery, a home to many rare species.

The absolute highlight of the Seychelles and a part of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites is the Aldabra Group, composed of three atolls: Aldabra itself, Cosmoledo, Astove and an elevated limestone platform island called Assumption.

Whether you choose a bareboat charter, a skippered sailboat or a catamaran, or a luxury yacht charter, sailing in the Seychelles really is a unique lifetime experience you should not miss. Treat yourself, and let SailingEurope plan the sailing holidays of your dreams.
