St Anne Marine Park Full day boat trip from Mahe

    What to Expect
    Spend the day discovering one of Seychelles main attractions.

    If you’re in the Seychelles, why not spend a day amid the postcard-perfect scenery of Ste Anne Marine National Park off the north coast of Mahé? Whether you choose to snorkel through the rich marine life or just float in the crystal-clear waters of a sand bank, you’ll feel your senses ignite at being so immersed in nature.

    We depart from Eden island, in front of the Maharaja restaurant at 9a.m. You may park at the Eden Plaza basement parking.. After a 20-minute boat ride in a mostly protected bay, you’ll have the opportunity to go snorkeling and hopefully see rays, turtles and even baby sharks, among the large variety of other marine life.

    At 11 a.m. we make our way to Moyenne Island National Park, a conservation sanctuary with more species per square foot than anywhere else in the world. Now inhabited by over a hundred giant tortoises, a few caretakers and a dog called Yellow, among richly varied plant and bird life, Moyenne was once the home of Englishman Brendon Grimshaw, a former newspaper editor who bought the previously uninhabited island in 1962 and lived there alone until his death in 2012. Stroll along the island’s 3 miles of nature paths finding out about him, including how he’s buried there alongside two pirates. Don’t be surprised if Yellow follows along!

    We break to enjoy a sumptuous local Creole buffet lunch at the Jolly Roger Bar and Restaurant at 1.30 p.m., before heading to one of the beaches around Ste Anne Marine National Park (to be determined by tide and weather) at about 3 p.m, or go feed the fish.

    After some time relaxing, we make the return trip to the marine charter marina, Victoria, at 4.30 p.m., rounding off a truly memorable experience.
