Diving Holidays in Seychelles

Scuba Diving in Seychelles

Home to one of the most diverse marine environments in the world, due to its stunning topography of reefs, drop offs and wrecks as well as the coral life and fish, the island nation of Seychelles has gained a worldwide reputation of being one of the prime destiantions for scuba divers.

The Seychelles is surrounded by the stunning Indian Ocean, so it’s only natural that visitors choose to delve beneath the waves and explore the marine life, reefs and even shipwrecks that can be found around the islands. The waters surrounding the Seychelles are simply some of the most exquisite in the world, reaching temperatures as warm as 29 degrees celsius and offering breathtakingly clear views up to 40 metres away.

Conservation laws concerning the area are very strict and as a result the waters are brimming with a rich biodiversity that can treat divers and snorkellers to spectacles such as green turtles and manta rays. With a wide range of diving operators offering trips for divers of all abilities across much of the Seychelles, why not take the plunge and discover the marvels of the Indian Ocean? Whether you are an intermediate or expert diver, this archipelago in the Indian Ocean offers all you can dream of. 

House Reef

Stunning reefs are not hard to come by in the Seychelles with many being easily found within walking distance of hotels. Thanks to exhaustive conservation efforts in recent times the coral surrounding the islands have avoided the ravages that other reefs around the world have unfortunately fallen victim to and as a result are still able to be enjoyed by visitors.

Most areas in the Seychelles are therefore able to offer fantastic diveable areas where you can observe marine life such as moray eels, eagle rays and vast schools of fish. Besides coral there are other perhaps less obvious features which have become home to various sea creatures. It is possible, for example, to dive down and see numerous shipwrecks dotted around the Seychelles including the 47,000 tonne Ennerdale tanker.

With several dive centres and an endless amount of areas to snorkel there really is no excuse for anyone with a passion for the sea not to jump in and discover what this truly remarkable area of the Indian Ocean has to offer.
