There are 115 islands in the Seychelles archipelago, which spans 1100 kilometers of the Indian Ocean. Granite and coral reefs are plentiful throughout the islands. Each of these islands offer breath-taking scenery, priceless wildlife, a rich underwater environment and a wonderful climate that makes it the perfect location for those who enjoy scuba diving and wildlife.
Scuba divers praise the virtues of their diving excursions. Some describe it as adrenaline-pumping, while others describe it as a calming, meditation-like experience. Touching life on the sea floor so far under the ocean is the most incredible sensation. Green turtles, hawksbill turtles, grey and silver tip Reef Sharks and Lion Fish are among the colourful and bright marine life. Among others as well, like the Stingray, Manta ray, Whale shark, Giant Grouper, Game fish, Barracuda and Hammerhead shark.
Almost everyone deserves the experience of a well-trained and well-guided scuba diving excursion. Mahe, Praslin, and La Digue are the main islands with a thriving scuba diving industry.
Numerous diving centers are located on these islands, and they offer services to divers of all levels, from absolute newbies to experienced divers. This is a great place for beginners to learn to dive because the maximum water depth permitted at these centers ranges from 8 meters to 30 meters.
These islands’ warm seas throughout the year are a result of their proximity to the equator. Divers might experience diving in radically different ways depending on the season. The south-east monsoon hits the archipelago in the months of June, July and August, causing the temperature to dip to 25 degrees. Planktons then populate the colder water, making it difficult for divers to see underwater. Although whale sightings are uncommon in the water, the planktons’ high nutritional value draws a lot of these animals.
The best season to go scuba diving in the Seychelles is from November to May since the weather is hot and humid and beautifully clear, allowing for continuous visibility up to 30 meters. Although there are frequent strong downpours from December to February, the sea is typically calm.
The three main inner islands, Mahe, Paslin, and La Digue, are located close to the best diving locations in the Seychelles, and they are all accessible from other islands.
One of the best water activities in the Seychelles is also considered to be snorkeling. It has a lot of marine parks, reefs, coves, and beaches where you may snorkel with a pro’s help.
