Here, enjoy a refreshing swim off the ship and in the evening, a welcome dinner to celebrate the journey ahead. The ship moors here overnight.
This morning, the ship sets sail for Curieuse, a small uninhabited island that was once home to a leper colony. Home to giant tortoises, Curieuse boasts lovely beaches and secluded coves. A walking excursion with a local guide takes you through mangrove forests to a farm. After, you’ll return to the beach and be treated to a barbeque under the trees. The afternoon is yours to enjoy the sea, sand, and sun. The ship anchors here overnight.
COUSIN ISLAND / ANSE LAZIO
The ship sails for Cousin Island, a nature reserve protected under Seychelles law, in the morning. Here, embark on an excursion to the Cousin Island Special Reserve, a bird sanctuary under the care of BirdLife International. Approximately 250,000 birds breed on this island, which is also home to several nesting beaches for sea turtles.
ARIDE / BAIE STE. ANNE
The island of Aride is the first stop for the day. Embark on an excursion to the highest point on the island to take in the incredible view. Home to Wright’s gardenia—a flower that isn’t found anywhere else on earth—along with bird species including the Seychelles warbler and the Audubon’s shearwater, Aride is brimming with natural wonders.
