Boat Tours and Water Sports in Seychelles - Aquatic Adventures

Seychelles is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There are plenty of opportunities for boating and water sports in this enchanting island during your visit.


Dive In!

Diving in Seychelles is an extraordinary experience. The reefs that surround the island are filled with over three hundred species of fish and more than hundred varieties of corals. There are many diving schools in Seychelles that cater to first time divers and those with experience. There are charter operators offering diving excursions and they navigate the best sites. There are more than a dozen dive sites off the coast of Mahe so your options are endless. The underwater experience in Seychelles is just mind-blowing with scenic corals surrounding a majority of the areas. Many resorts in Seychelles have specialized diving excursions so make sure you inquire from the staff what they have on offer.


Stand Up Paddle Boarding

There's nothing more exciting than trying out new things when you are in a completely new location. Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is quite new to the world of water sports. The rider has to stand on a longboard and use a paddle to move forward through the water. There's no rocket science involved in SUP, you'll be able to learn the technique probably in an hour's time. A rider with a moderate fitness level can easily do this and it's a unique experience.



Paddling in the sunny Seychelles allows you to explore the island while wandering along palm-fringed beaches and pristine waters. Your kayaking excursion is going to be dazzled by the marine species that you will meet along the way. Be prepared to see a pod of excited dolphins or laidback giant turtles paddling along leisurely. Paddling in this paradise isle is given you the opportunity to enjoy a water sport but also be mesmerized by the magnificent sea life of the Seychelles. In Seychelles your accommodation matters a lot, so make sure you book a hotel that has positive reviews such as the AVANI Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa.


Paddle Boating

The sunny paradise of Seychelles calls for something new, fun and exciting! So forget the boring old boat rides and try out paddle boating also known as pedalo. These boats are built for two people so it gives you some one on one time with a partner of your choice. Paddleboats come with two handlebars for maneuvering while you paddle with your feet. Once you reach the right spot in the ocean, plunge in to explore what lies beneath the crystal clear surface.



Windsurfing is one of the best watersports in the world. Whether you are an amateur or experienced windsurfer you are going to have lots of fun! If you are a beginner start with the gentle breezes then move towards the rougher winds. If you have an average sense of balance and ability to sail then you are good to go. Windsurfing in Seychelles is one of the best water activities to experience so make sure to jot it down on your list of fun things to do!
