Full description
The Curieuse Marine National Park is a sanctuary to a big variety of flora and fauna. On the southern part of the island, you will discover a mangrove swamp that is traversed by a walkway for park visitors. The island is also known for its coco de merpalms, giant takamaka trees, and a large hawksbill turtle rookery. The area is also rich with several bird species, such as the rare Seychelles black parrot Coracopis nigra barklyi, a parrot found only there and on Praslin. St. Pierre Island is a raised reef island west of Providence Atoll and a part of the Farquhar Group, which belongs to the Outer Islands of the Seychelles.

a great boat trip with only 5 participants (me included). It was well organized and there was the opportunity to see giant tortoises, to hike through a mangrove forest on a long boardwalk, to have a swim, to enjoy a barbecue and to go snorkelling around St.Pierre islet, full of many colorful fish, being in a marine park, although the corals had bleached out.

The pick up at the hotel was very punctual. On the island we had free time to take photos with the turtles, then we were told how to get to the other side of the island, where we also had a BBQ. After that there was still a snorkeling opportunity.

It was picked up on time and we were lucky that no other guests had booked the tour - so we had a private day tour (2 people). We had a great day and at the end even dived with the turtles. The captain was on the lookout and also drove to another place. We can recommend the provider without reservation - it couldn't be better !!!!
