Silversea Luxury Cruises A Praslin

Praslin

Forty kilometers (25 miles) northeast of Mahé, Praslin is just a 15-minute flight or 45-minute ferry ride away. Praslin, at 11 km (7 miles) long and 4 km (2.5 miles) wide, is the second-largest island in the Seychelles. View more

First settled as a hideaway by pirates and Arab merchants, the island's original name, Isle de Palmes, bears testament to its reputation as home of the Vallée de Mai UNESCO World Heritage Site: the only place in the world where the famous Coco de Mer, the world's heaviest nut, grows abundantly in the wild. Praslin's endemic palm forests shelter many rare species, and the island is a major bird-watching destination. Surrounded by a coral reef, majestic bays, and gorgeous beaches, Praslin is much quieter and less developed than Mahé. With few real "sights," the pleasures of Praslin largely involve relaxing in or exploring its stunning beaches and fantastical forests.

Excursiones en Praslin

Coco Island Snorkel Adventure

Snorkelling fans can discover the exotic marine world the Seychelles are famous for. After your tender ride ashore, board the catamaran and sail towards Coco Island. Cruise onboard a sailing catamaran for a snorkelling experience that is the best. The island is merely a small granitic outcrop with a few palm trees, but its real treasure lies in the depths around. Often compared to a living aquarium, the site attracts numerous fish species floating to the surface to feed - a unique underwater paradise.

From the boat, enter the crystalline waters to swim and snorkel among brilliantly coloured fish. You may want to wear a T-shirt while snorkelling as sun protection and bring a second T-shirt to change into afterwards. Refreshments are served on board the catamaran on your return to the pier.

Please note: This tour involves a minimal amount of walking, with a few steps to negotiate to embark/disembark the tender boat and the catamaran. This tour is recommended for guests who are in good physical condition, and can swim in water too deep too stand. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility, and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear a swimsuit under a cover-up with beach, water shoes to protect feet from coral, and bring sun protection and a towel from the ship. Guests must be at least 2 years old to participate on this tour; Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to participate on this tour. Snorkelling equipment is provided; fin sizes must be provided 24 hours in advance to the on board Shore Concierge Team. Due to the nature of the tour, participants are asked to sign a disclaimer. Operation of this tour is subject to weather conditions. Space on this tour is extremely limited; we suggest you book well in advance to avoid disappointment.

La Digue Highlights


Embrace the captivating, Old World beauty and charm of La Digue, one of the prettiest islands in the Seychelles, during this scenic, half-day sightseeing and beach excursion.


Bair Ste. Anne Jetty, La Digue Island, La Passe Village, l'Union Estate, Plantation House

Depart the pier aboard a local ferry for the short crossing to La Digue Island, where oxcarts and a slower pace of life await you. Upon arrival, board a van for the short drive to the l'Union Estate. From the picturesque harbour village of La Passe to l'Union Estate, this island has a special magic. The estate, with its fine, old Creole house and Coconut Factory, harkens back to a bygone era. During your visit, take a guided walking tour of the copra kiln, traditional coconut oil mill and Colonial plantation house.


Anse Source D'Argent, Free Time, White-Sand Beach, Granite Boulders, Swimming, Bird-Watching

Next, re-board your coach and head to Anse Source D'Argent. La Digue's beaches are among the finest in the world, especially Anse Source D'Argent, a bather's paradise and photographer's dream. The soft, white sands and dramatic granite boulders have enchanted visitors to the island through the centuries. During your free time here, you can soak up the tropical sun, stroll the white-sand beach and swim in the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Sharp-eyed bird-watchers may be lucky enough to spot La Digue's paradise flycatcher, with its distinctive black plumage.


La Passe Village, Shopping Stop, Ferry-Ride, Praslin Jetty

Following your beach visit, re-board your coach and drive back to the jetty. Time-permitting, a shopping stop is made for souvenirs at La Passe, the island's main village. At the conclusion of your visit, embark the ferry for the ride back to the Praslin Jetty. Upon arrival, disembark the ferry and embark the ship.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking, at times over uneven, sandy, and natural ground and exposed roots, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and embark/disembark the ferry.

This tour is not suitable for guests prone to seasickness, guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear a swimsuit under a cover-up with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection, a towel, change of clothing and bottled water from the ship.

Depart the Bair Ste. Anne Jetty for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to the domestic terminal, and your awaiting helicopter. Upon arrival, receive your safety and flight instructions, then begin your breath-taking, approximately 30-minute helicopter flight-seeing tour. After lift-off, discover the unspoilt island of La Digue, which retains the Creole charm of a natural paradise. La Digue is protected by an encircling coral reef, and has masses of magnificent and colossal pink granite outcrops.

Félicité, Coco and Praslin Islands, Vallee de Mai, Coco de Mer, Anse Lazio, Anse Georgette

This tour offers guests the opportunity to experience the natural wonder of the Vallée de Mai, home to the fabled Coco de Mer, a World Heritage Site. As well, spend some time at Praslin's glorious beaches, notably Côte d'Or Beach.


Vallée De Mai

Following the tender ride ashore, board your coach for the 15-minute drive to the Praslin National Park, set in the central hills and covering an area of more than one square mile. During a guided walk into this magical forest, feel an atmosphere of great tranquillity surround you. Only the carefully laid out paths betray the fact that human hands have been at work here to make the homeland of the coco de mer accessible to the visitor and to provide an idea of the vegetation existing on the island prior to the arrival of Europeans.


Follow your guide on a nature trail and learn about a variety of interesting botanical species. At times, the palm fronds form such a thick roof that the sun is obliterated. Even walking just a short distance into this green palm thicket will enable you to marvel at the endemic coco de mer palms, some of which grow 60 to 90 feet (18-28 metres) high. For many years, the origin of the palms' uniquely shaped fruit, which washed ashore on African and Asian coasts, was shrouded in mystery. One of the legends suggested that giant underwater trees produced them, thereby giving the heavy (up to 40 pounds, 18 kg), double-cheeked nut its name. During the early 1900s, this rare object was such a highly prised collector's item that one illustrious owner even had it embellished in gold. Following your walk, there is time for a quick look at the gift shop before reboarding the coach.


Côte d'Or Beach

Next, a 20-minute drive brings you to the coastal area. At lovely Côte d'Or Beach, have about an hour to relax, swim and enjoy a cold drink, while taking in the shoreline beauty. Your tour concludes with the drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking at Vallée de Mai, partly on uneven ground and with some steep inclines. This tour is recommended for guests who are in good physical condition. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility, and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear Lightweight, comfortable clothing, a swimsuit under a cover-up with beach or water shoes, and bring sun protection and a towel from the ship. Guests must be at least 2 years old to participate on this tour. The tour sequence may vary. Operation of this tour is subject to weather conditions. Space on this tour is extremely limited; we suggest you book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
