Diving the Seychelles

Seychelles is one of the world’s most beautiful tropical island destinations. Sitting between 4 and 10 degrees south of the equator provides warm water and air temperatures here year-round. The archipelago is divided into two main groups: the inner and outer islands. The inner islands consist of 41 granite-based islands with narrow coastal strips and central mountain ranges rising 900m into the air. Coral atolls and reefs make up the 71 outer islands, many of which are uninhabited.

The Seychelles are home to some of the best diving in the world. Sitting in the middle of the Indian Ocean, just off the east coast of Africa, this archipelago consists of 115 islands over an 1100 km area. If you are looking for pure, untouched coral reefs, crystal clear water, and uncrowded white sand beaches, diving the Seychelles offers just that. With half of the country preserved as national parks, marine life in the Seychelles abound. Imagine yourself immersed in warm, gin-clear water exploring massive granite formations, caves, and canyons covered in hard and soft corals every color of the rainbow. This is what diving the Seychelles is all about.
