Destination and Itineraries
Huge granit rocks polished by the waves of the Indian Ocean, giant palm trees with embarrassingly shaped nuts, turquoise inlets fringed by lush green takamakas shading the fine white sand beaches. This is the paradise image we all have about Seychelles islands. And deservedly so, for most of these islands lying a thousand kilometres off the East coast of Africa, just south of the Equator, are stunningly beautiful. To find such a richness of colours and harmony of forms you have think about some of the Polynesian atolls to find a comparable vision of earthly paradise.
Add to that the generally smooth sailing conditions between the islands and the easy going lifestyle of the local population, you have all what you need within a 60 miles radius of the main island Mahé, in other words a sea greater than France to provide several weeks of idyllic crusing.
Climate and winds
Perfect sea and weather conditions for the charterer.
The archipelago, which is under the influence of really strong winds, is dominated by a distinctive system consisting of two monsoons separated by a month of variable weather: the inter-season.
From May to October, almost constant winds blow south easterly with clear skies. The winds drop in November and give way to north-westerly. The south-easterly wind pattern returns in April. In between these two periods of south-easterly and north-westerly winds there are two short periods of calm or light winds. April and May are the sunniest months with a daily average of 7h50' to 8h20' of sun. These slight climate changes barely affect the temperature, which remains at an average of 28° to 32°C, both air and sea. No hurricane season in the Seychelles, winds rarely exceed speeds of 30 knots.
January to march : north-westerly winds are dominant with short spells of wind from the north or north east. Speeds between 10 to 15 knots, small swell. In march winds begin to weaken.
April and may : The winds blow from north/east with speeds between 5 to 15 knots. Very calm sea, air temperature 32°C, sea temperature 30°C.
June : south-easterly winds predominate slightly with speeds between 10 and 20 knots.
July to September : dry season, air and water temperature at 28°C, very few rainfalls. South-easterly winds predominate at a steady 20 to 25 knots. Sea can be choppy and some anchorages not accessible.
October and November : Winds and swell decrease progressively. As November goes by north-west winds come back.
December : the winds blow from north-west with speeds between 5 and 10 knots. Temperature rises.
Tides are semi diurnal and asymmetrical with a gap of about 6 hours between high tide and low tide. The tidal range is as low as 1.80m at spring tides and 1.40m at neap tides. Tides give rise to currents which can be quite strong in the straits between islands or in the channel leading to lagoons. There can be quite considerable differences in height between the two daily high tides.
Throughout the equatorial zone of the Indian Ocean the swell is generally moderate. Waves are usually between 1 and 1,2 m.
To be paid at the base upon embarkation by bank certified cheque, cash, traveller's cheques or credit card (Visa or MasterCard only). The deposit will be charged the equivalent amount in the local currency. If paid by credit card, we recommend you contact your bank to advise them of the transaction, prior to the charge being processed. Should the refundable (subject to damage or loss) Security Deposit by credit card be refused at the time of embarkation, you will be required instead, to take out the non-refundable Security Insurance.
All yachts are delivered to you with full tanks of fuel (yacht & dinghy), full tank of water, 1 bottle of cooking gas in duty + 1 spare bottle. You have to re-deliver the yacht with full tanks of fuel and water.
Charter can be taken from Praslin or Mahe. Should you want to end your sailing vacation different to the pick up location, please advise and we will arrange this one-way charter for you (one-way fee applicable).
Once you have gone through the provisions list, you are required to submit your order (no later than 20 days prior to departure date). Your groceries and other useful items will be ready upon your arrival. Please return your completed provisions list to our office by emailing our staff at: email@example.com. Payment is made at the base on arrival.
For charters booked with the pre-paid Meal Package Option: Your hostess/cook will shop for provisions (according to your preferences) and have your vessel fully stocked and ready prior to your arrival. All the cooking and cleaning in the galley will be taken care of by your hostess/cook while you relax!
For charters booked with skipper only (no hostess/cook): You will need to supply your own food by shopping on arrival or order from the self-select provisions list (if you would like your vessel to be stocked and ready prior to your arrival). You are also required to provide meals for your skipper therefore you will need to keep this in mind when you are purchasing or ordering your food. Please note that the skipper is only responsible for the operation of the yacht. Cooking for the skipper as well as cleaning of the galley will be your responsibility.
