Seychelles Ocean Safari on a Tropical Island Paradise

Inspirational island getaway to Seychelles

A voyage of discovery to an absolute Seychelles gem, Alphonse Island - a pristine ocean paradise where marine life thrives. Blending sustainable tourism and conservation projects with a diverse range of unique, thrilling experiences, you'll be immersed in nature on this remote island hideaway. Fly south from Mahé by light aircraft for 1 hour to a sparkling archipelago that appears like a different world. Staying in typical Seychelles-style accommodation, or more luxurious villas, select from an array of exhilarating activities, most with expert guides, that will let you capture truly special moments.

Take a walk with the Conservation Society and assist with turtle patrols and bird monitoring; go on a manta ray signature snorkeling experience; join a reef flats expedition across crystal clear lagoons spotting juvenile turtles and eagle rays; and a real highlight, the amazing Flats Lunch - a dining experience like no other.
