Came to Seychelles with very high expectations. Eden Island is a well thought out resort, but it lacks a vibe came with 3 teenagers who were bored out of their minds. If you don't own a boat, paddle ski or snorkels, you are screwed. Nothing to do but to sit on the beach. Food is Extremely expensive. Beers are R275... More

We boarded a catamaran in Port Victoria and set sail for the National Marine Park to throw bread to the fish, which were in a feeding frenzy. Then we took the semi-submarine to further explore the marine life to see the scorpion, parrot, and butterfly fish as well as red gorgorian coral fans. We had the option of taking a... More

I've used Marine Cat quite a few times and the journey is always without hitch and very pleasant. Tad expensive, but that's supply and demand for you!

The trip was pretty good but on the way back around 6 pm sitting on top deck in the open air it was freezing and way too windy. Next time I will make sure that I am seated downstairs. Cheap for locals but very pricey for tourists.

We used Marine Cat to get from Mahe to Prasline and La Digue and their vessels were comfortable and on time. Be prepared for a little roughness, even in July, so if prone to sea sickness take pills or magnet wrist straps. You cannot sit outside unless you are prepared to get wet, although many took the chance as the... More

As a tourist, give this a skip and rather fly over to Praslin. Bumpy and noisy tourists that does not appreciate anything and the ride makes only for stong tummies. The staff on the other hand was extremely friendly and efficient, so give it a skip and go on a private charter, much more fun and memroble. Thanks to Roy... More

One of the BIG draws is a coconut tree, the nuts outer nuts being shaped like a derriere, and apparently only found in Seychalles. Not really too impressive. More interesting was a small red bird that looks almost like a moth in flight. We took a bus tour of the more touristy part of the island, past some big homes... More
