Hello,

We are an excursion company offering truly tailor-made boat charters. You tell us what you want to do and we guide you in organising the excursion of your dreams.

Visit stunning beaches and enjoy our tasty Creole barbecue and if you wish to try your hand at fishing - join us in catching your lunch/dinner!

If you are a certified Scuba diver or wish to have an introductory dive to see what Suba diving is all about, why not make the most of a private dive with our experienced PADI diving instructor?

We pride ourselves on offering a professional high quality service, with a focus on sustainable living, guaranteed to give you an authentic experience of the Seychelles.

Children are very welcome and we will get them involved in the activities you choose. Please do tell us if you have special dietary requirements as we cater to these as well.

We met with Nigel the day beforehand at our hotel. He was very candid about the weather and that there might be choppy waters. We decided to proceed the next day. The trip taught us about the natural and political history of the Seychelles. No question was off limits. We snorkeled seeing Rays and Dolphins in addition to over 80... More

My husband and I had been looking into cheaper, group boat trips to do snorkelling in Cocos Island, visit the famous beach in Grande Soeur and meet the giant tortoises in Curieuse, but impressed by the fantastic reviews here in TripAdvisor we decided to go a little bit over budget and chose Indigo. And we are so glad we did!... More

However, INDIGO Boat Charter and Excursion Day Tours transformed that Pearl into a Jewel Box, full of Diamonds, Topaz, Platinum, Rubies, Jade, Gold, Silver, you name it.
