The Seychelles has some of the greatest diving and snorkelling in the world, with a whole rainbow of vivid colours waiting to be discovered beneath the surface of the water. Coral reefs, submerged granite formations, long-sunk shipwrecks and schools of brightly-hued fish are just a few of the things you’re likely to encounter beneath the waves. Sightings of impressive marine mega-fauna are not uncommon either: various species of sharks, turtles and rays inhabit Seychelles’ warm waters, while whale sharks and manta rays make seasonal appearances during their annual migration.
You need not be an experienced SCUBA diver to enjoy these remarkable sightings: Discover SCUBA Diving courses are available to first time divers, who are curious about underwater exploration, while snorkelling and glass bottom boat tours are suitable for travellers who prefer to keep their head above the waves.
Seychelles is also an excellent destination to advance your diving knowledge and qualifications. Why not take the plunge and get your Open Water qualification while on holiday, or participate in some adventure dives to get your Advanced Open Water licence? With so many reputable dive centres on the island, it is easy to leave the Seychelles with a new set of diving skills.
