Set sail for a 13-day expedition cruise to discover the most beautiful islands of the Seychelles. PONANT invites you to follow an unforgettable itinerary aboard Le Jacques-Cartier, against a backdrop of turquoise waters and coconut palms

Leaving from Victoria, the archipelago’s capital, fall under the spell of the idyllic landscapes, with their exceptional flora and fauna.

In Praslin, don’t miss the chance to visit the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve. There you will find sea coconuts, gigantic fruits with a very evocative shape, nicknamed the “love nut”.

You will discover the island of Aride, an unspoiled delight of the Indian Ocean, home to thousands of birds including some endemic species and Poivre Island, an idyllic coral atoll where sea turtles can be found swimming in the lagoon.

During your cruise, you will have many opportunities to dive or snorkel, notably at the heart of the sublime coral reef in the Alphonse lagoon.

Another highlight of your trip will be the port of call at Aldabra, a gigantic coral atoll that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Edged with mangrove and fine sandy beaches, it is home to the largest colony of land turtles in the world.

Le Jacques-Cartier will finally chart a course for the coral island of Desroches and the sublime beaches of La Digue, some of the most renowned of the Seychelles, before returning to Mahé. Take the time to visit the botanical gardens of the Seychelles’ capital and to stroll among the colourful stalls of its market. 

The encounters with the wildlife described above illustrate possible experiences only and cannot be guaranteed.
