Seychelles are the ultimate paradise in the middle of the Indian Ocean. It is an archipelago of 115 islands that are diverse in nature with unspoiled sand and beaches. Seychelles should definitely be on your radar if you are looking for exploration and adventure. Located off the eastern coast of Africa, the natural beauty and unique wildlife will make any person instantly fall in love with Seychelles.
When it comes to renting a boat in the Seychelles there is a huge range of boats available in different price ranges. If you are planning to charter a yacht in the Seychelles, expect to pay around 300€/day for a sailboat and 500€/day for a catamaran. The huge selection will allow you to find the most suitable boat for your needs either for a day or for a whole week. If you are renting a boat in the Seychelles, keep in mind that there is a possibility to rent with a skipper, so you can enjoy a stress free vacation in the middle of the ocean, without worrying about driving a boat.
Due to the excellent climate in the region there is a wide range of boats available. Because the Seychelles are outside of the hurricane zone, sailing is possible all year round. From May to October, you will have the south-east trade winds with winds getting stronger all the way into August. From December to the end of March, you’ll have the winds from the north-east which are a lot calmer, but you’ll also have the rain concentrated in the months of December, January and February.
In order to charter a boat in the Seychelles, you will need to have a valid license and a SRC. In addition to this, you will have to present a nautical CV detailing your previous sailing experience regarding the waters you’ve sailed and the types of boats you’ve captained.
If you lack experience, don’t have the valid boating license or just don’t feel comfortable renting a bareboat in the Seychelles, you can easily rent a boat with a skipper. A skipper has a local knowledge of the area and you will certainly see all of the hidden gems of the area.
Depending on your expected travel length, Seychelles is usually divided into two parts. The first chunk of islands, which are the 43 main islands are most visited. With yacht charter, the remaining outlying islands are easily reachable and provide rich, remote scenery.
The larger of the islands in which people usually visit, for good reason, is the Mahé Island. As mentioned before, these islands are begging to be explored. In the Mahé island, you can find stunning waterfalls and trails through the mountain ranges that will leave you in awe.
In Mahé, the activity of ‘beach hopping’ actually exists. The island boasts over 60 different beaches all with their unique personality and visually stunning aesthetic.
Once you have taken advantage of the activities on the Mahé island and its capital Victoria, sail over to the outer islands. With several to choose from, we propose heading to La Digue. With a very small population of approximately 2,000 people and barely any transport infrastructure, the island is on the smaller side of the Seychelles. When you arrive on your catamaran, you will be immediately blown away. The beaches in La Digue are undoubtedly some of the most beautiful beaches world wide. The most charming among these is the Anse Source D’Argent. With its abundance of boulders and white sand, it is no surprise it is the most photographed beach in the world.
Near and around the Seychelles, you'll have different islands that are completely different and unique in their own way. For example, directly south of Seychelles is the famous island of Reunion. Known globally, yacht charters in Reunion are a sailor's dream. Another great destination nearby to rent a boat is Madagascar. Both of these islands will surely provide an exotic vacation for your family or friends.
The Seychelles are very easily reachable by taking a plane and landing on the island of Mahé. If you are planning on visiting the other, smaller islands there is a possibility of taking a small plane or boats to reach the other parts.
