The highlight of our cruise in the Seychelles was undoubtedly the encounter with the manta rays. Their impressive wingspan and elegance in the water were simply breathtaking. We were also fortunate to see sea turtles basking on the white sand beaches. The multicolored corals and schools of tropical fish added a touch of beauty to every dive we did. I highly recommend this experience to all nature and marine life enthusiasts.

Our cruise in the Seychelles was amazing! We were fortunate to swim with majestic manta rays. Their graceful movements in the water were breathtaking.

FAQ

Can we rent a catamaran with a skipper?

We offer boat rental options with a skipper or professional captain. This is ideal if you have no sailing experience or simply want to relax during your trip.

The skipper is responsible for onboard safety and has a deep understanding of local conditions, which can be crucial in sometimes challenging waters.

You can discuss the itinerary you'd like to follow with the skipper, based on your interests and available time. Local skippers typically have excellent knowledge of the area and can recommend places to visit.

Renting a catamaran with a skipper offers many benefits, including the opportunity to fully enjoy your journey without worrying about navigation, the route, or safety.

Do you offer day charter ?

You can add a Seychellois chef and food for €50 per person.

The itinerary is flexible around Mahé and is defined based on your expectations and conditions: St Anne, Anse Royage, Beau Vallon, Bay Ternay, Anse Major.

You can find more information on this page.

What luggage can I bring for my sailing vacation in the Seychelles ?

We recommend choosing soft bags for your boat cruise in the Seychelles, as suitcases can be bulky on board.

How to have internet during your cruise in the Seychelles ?

Cybercafés are available in Mahé, Praslin, and La Digue. You also have the option to purchase a local SIM card for internet access or use certain local Wi-Fi hotspots, although the latter may have data restrictions.

What documents do I need to skipper a catamaran in the Seychelles ?

The Seychelles recognize foreign navigation licenses when translated into English. However, it is strongly recommended to have the ICC (International Certificate of Competence) to avoid any risk of invalidity.

Which language is spoken in the Seychelles ?

The national languages of the Seychelles are Seychellois Creole, English, and French.

What is the security deposit waiver insurance, and how does it work?

Security deposit waiver insurance, also known as franchise insurance, is an option offered by SAILOÉ.

This insurance aims to reduce the financial liability of the renter in case of damages or unforeseen expenses associated with the rental object.

Subscribing to insurance: When you rent a SAILOÉ boat, security deposit waiver insurance is usually offered to you as an additional option: 6% of the boat rental amount.

Reduction of the security deposit: If you subscribe to security deposit waiver insurance, SAILOÉ will reduce the amount of the security deposit you need to pay at the time of rental. For example, if the initial security deposit is 8,000 euros, by subscribing to the insurance, you could reduce this deposit to 1,500 euros.

Depending on your situation and needs, security deposit waiver insurance can provide additional peace of mind during your rental by reducing your financial liability in case of unforeseen issues.

What is included and not included in my rental ?

Included: Standard boat inventory and equipment, bed linens, shower towels, flippers, mask and snorkel, dinghy with its engine, fishing rod, and charcoal barbecue.

For your transportation between the boat and the beaches or nearby islands, our dinghy with its own engine is at your disposal. It will allow you to easily access the shore and explore the wonders that the Seychelles have to offer.

Finally, for those who enjoy fishing and outdoor grilling, we have included a fishing rod and a charcoal barbecue. You can catch your own dinner and prepare it on board for a unique culinary experience.

We want to ensure that your trip goes smoothly, which is why we would like to inform you of what is not included in your package.

How to choose the size of a catamaran for your cruise in the Seychelles ?

The choice of the size of the catamaran for your cruise in the Seychelles depends on several factors, including the number of people in your group, your comfort preferences, your sailing experience, and your budget. Here are some factors to consider to help you decide on the size of the catamaran that best suits your trip:

Group size: The first important consideration is the number of people who will be participating in the cruise. Catamarans are available in different sizes, from small models that can accommodate a few passengers to larger catamarans suitable for larger groups. Make sure to choose a catamaran that provides enough space for all members of your group to be comfortable.

Comfort: If you are looking for a high level of comfort with spacious cabins, private bathrooms, and generous living spaces, you will need to opt for a larger catamaran. Larger catamarans tend to offer more luxury and amenities.

Sailing experience: If you have sailing experience and may want to take control of the catamaran yourself, a smaller catamaran may be more suitable. However, if you prefer to leave the sailing to a professional crew, a larger catamaran with a crew may be the ideal choice.

Budget: The cost of renting a catamaran typically increases with its size. Therefore, it is important to consider your budget when choosing the size of the catamaran. Don't forget to factor in other costs associated with the cruise, such as food, fuel, and port fees.

Itinerary and destinations: Consider the itinerary you plan to follow in the Seychelles. Some sailing areas may be more suitable for smaller catamarans due to depth restrictions or limited access to moorings. Ensure that the catamaran you choose is suitable for the places you want to explore.

In the end, the choice of the catamaran's size will depend on your specific needs and personal preferences.

Can we rent a catamaran with a cook ?

It is entirely possible to rent a catamaran with a chef in the Seychelles. SAILOÉ offers this option to provide our clients with an even more comfortable and enjoyable sailing experience.

When you rent a catamaran with a chef, you typically enjoy the following benefits:

Customized meals: The onboard chef takes care of preparing all the meals, meaning you don't have to worry about cooking. You can discuss your dietary preferences, special diets, and dishes you'd like to enjoy during your voyage.

Local and international cuisine: The chef can introduce you to Seychellois cuisine as well as international dishes, depending on your tastes.

Time savings: You save precious time that you would have otherwise spent cooking or searching for restaurants on the islands you visit.

Maximum relaxation: You can relax and fully enjoy your journey without worrying about meal preparation or cleaning up afterward.

Personalized service: The chef can tailor meals to accommodate food allergies, specific dietary preferences, and the needs of your group.

Before booking a catamaran with a chef, make sure to discuss your dietary requirements, preferences, and associated costs with us. This option can enhance your cruising experience, allowing you to focus on relaxation and exploring the beautiful islands of the Seychelles

What to bring for a catamaran cruise in the Seychelles?

Opt for a soft and moderately sized bag: Soft bags are more suitable for saving space in the catamaran cabin, as they can fold and fit more easily than a hard suitcase. Additionally, a small bag can be easily carried with you during your stops on the different islands.

Essential clothing for a tropical cruise:

Light and comfortable clothing: Choose lightweight and breathable materials such as cotton or linen for t-shirts, shorts, skirts, and dresses. Bring multiple outfits to avoid having to wash your clothes every day.

Two swimsuits: Alternating between two swimsuits allows one to dry while you wear the other. Opt for light colors that attract less heat.

A sarong: Practical and versatile, a sarong can be worn as a skirt, a dress, or used to protect yourself from the sun and wind.

An outfit for evenings: While most catamaran cruises in the Seychelles are casual, pack a slightly dressier outfit just in case you dine at a restaurant on land.

Underwear and socks: Bring enough underwear for the duration of your stay, as well as a pair of lightweight socks for cooler nights.

Clothing and accessories to protect against the sun and rain:

The weather in the Seychelles is generally mild, but occasional tropical showers can occur. So, remember to pack:

A wide-brimmed hat: A wide-brimmed hat is ideal for sun protection during the day.

Sunglasses: Choose polarized lenses for better UV protection and to reduce glare from the water.

Sunscreen: Opt for sunscreen suitable for your skin type and water-resistant.

A lightweight rain jacket: To protect yourself from rain showers, choose a rain jacket that can easily be folded into your bag.

Appropriate footwear for a catamaran cruise and stops in the Seychelles:

Sandals: Opt for comfortable and well-fitting sandals, perfect for walking on the deck and on sandy beaches.

Water shoes: Essential for accessing rocky or coral areas, water shoes provide better traction while protecting your feet.

A pair of sneakers: If you plan to hike or bike during your stops, always pack a pair of lightweight and comfortable sneakers.

Useful accessories and equipment for the cruise:

An underwater camera: Being able to capture the wonders of the Indian Ocean underwater is invaluable. With a waterproof camera, you can immortalize these moments without worrying about damaging your equipment.

A tourist guidebook: Bringing a comprehensive guidebook on the Seychelles will help you discover the must-see attractions and hidden gems of the islands.

An electrical adapter: Check if your devices are compatible with the Seychelles' electrical outlets and remember to bring a universal adapter just in case.

A headlamp or a small flashlight: Quite useful when night falls on the docks or during evening activities ashore, this small source of light can come in handy.

Is it possible to fish during my cruise in the Seychelles?

Seychelles offer excellent opportunities for sea fishing, whether it's sport fishing or deep-sea fishing. You can catch a variety of fish, including tuna, marlin, dorado, and other prized species.

Some areas are off-limits for fishing to preserve the Seychellois marine environment. This is the case, in particular, in the vicinity of Port Launay Bay, Coco Island, and Curieuse Island.

Is it possible to go to the Amirantes with your boats?

Some of our boats are equipped to go to the Amirantes.

To reach the Amirantes, crews must obtain permission from the I.D.C, pay a landing fee, and must embark a locally accredited skipper.

What are the marine attractions to discover while sailing around Praslin?

Navigating around Praslin offers the opportunity to visit the famous Anse Lazio, renowned for its pristine beaches and waters ideal for paddleboarding. The islet of Saint-Pierre provides exceptional snorkeling opportunities, allowing visitors to explore colorful coral reefs and encounter a variety of tropical fish. The island of Curieuse is also worth discovering. It is famous for hosting a significant population of Aldabra giant tortoises, making it an iconic location for the observation and preservation of these endangered species.

The Aldabra giant tortoises on Curieuse Island are distinguished by their impressive size and curious behavior. Travelers can observe these majestic creatures moving freely in a preserved natural environment.

What are the must-visit places when renting a boat in Mahé ?

When renting a boat in Mahé, explore the beautiful beaches of Anse Royale and Anse Intendance, where you can enjoy fine sand and crystal-clear waters, as well as observe sea turtles that frequent the area.

Port Launay Beach is a true gem with its fine sand and calm, shallow waters. It's the perfect spot to relax, swim, and bask in the tropical sun
