From Praslin: Cocos, Felicite & La Digue Islands Tour

1. From Praslin: Cocos, Felicite & La Digue Islands Tour

Get picked up from your hotel on Praslin Island in the morning, then set off on a speedboat adventure to discover some of the most stunning islands in the Seychelles archipelago. First, arrive at Cocos - an idyllic isle bathed by crystal-clear waters with exceptional snorkeling opportunities. Swim amid turtles and hundreds of fish above a wealth of coral.  Next, head over to Félicité Island - a small, heavily forested granite island that forms part of a protected marine park. Enjoy plenty more opportunities to snorkel and swim here, whilst taking in the breathtaking natural scenery.  Finally, arrive at La Digue which offers the perfect mix of local culture and beautiful white-sand beaches. Admire the old Copra Mill used to produce coconut oil, an old cemetery, and the spectacular beaches. Visit Anse Cocos Beach, a quiet location on the Southside of the island. Then, head over to marvel at the giant granite boulders on the famous white sand beach of Anse Source D’Argent which are truly breathtaking. At the end of your excursion, board the speedboat to return to Praslin where you will be dropped off back at your hotel.

Praslin: Vallee de Mai Guided Hike with Transfer

2. Praslin: Vallee de Mai Guided Hike with Transfer

Leave the world behind and join us in exploring the mysterious realm of Vallée de Mai, the legendary valley where General Gordon of Khartoum became convinced was the original site of the biblical Garden of Eden. Stroll along the winding footpaths of a place so special it has been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site, beneath the shade of an-cient, towering palms bearing the most extraordinary fruit of all: the famous Coco de Mer. A double lobed coconut, it holds the record as the world’s heaviest seed, mystifyingly designed by Mother Nature to perfectly imitate the sensual shape of a woman’s pelvis, adding to its Eden lore. Listen for the call of one of the world’s rarest birds, the Seychelles Black Parrot, as you wander further into the valley. Your guide will introduce you to its spectacular treasures, which includes one of the planet’s tiniest frogs, stick insects, chameleons and six species of endemic palms.

What people are saying about Praslin Island

Superb experience with our very nice guide, multilingual and not stingy with good advice, Benevolent, think about bringing a change of clothes for after the boat or doing the crossings in a swimsuit because a lot of splashes. But apart from this small detail, a superb excursion that we highly recommend!

It's been a nice day. There was no one there but my daughter and me. The snorkeling was great. We spent at least 1 hour practicing it and we saw an impressive amount of fish. Then the Anse source d'argent beach is amazing. We rented 2 bikes and toured part of the island

Well organized, the day was a lot of fun! We would book again at any time! Reynold, the boss, is a super cool guy and Sony (skipper) is also totally on the ball and explains a lot. Because there are only small groups, it is much more pleasant than with other agencies

Superb day snorkeling and at the dam, accompanied by Sony, employee of Reynold. Very friendly, picked us up from our air bnb and then dropped off in the evening. Advice on snorkeling sites, etc... at the top! We recommend!

driver of the transfer as well as the boat at the top! super nice, and super cool! 2 snorkeling spots then he left us for 4 hours on the dike to visit a little and see what we wanted.
