Discover Diving Seychelles

From the granitic islands (Mahe, Praslin...) to the corallian islands (Alphonse, Desroches...), scuba diving offers many possibilities for the discovery of the Seychellois sea depths. The first are characterised, as they are on land, by large fallen rocks, where a population of colourful and varied fish lives, whereas the second allow the discovery of superb slopes where corals are still alive and kicking. Numerous diving centres are awaiting you on Mahé, most of the time part of a major hotel complex, and on Praslin, on beaches where the major diving sites are. On Desroches, as on Alphonse, the diving centre is also part of the hotel. You need to know that underwater fishing is scrupulously prohibited. It is also possible to go on a diving cruise allowing to discover the depths of several islands at one time and multiply the number of sites to see. Commandant Cousteau did not choose the Seychelles to shoot his famous Silent World at random!
