Crew and itinerary were amazing!

Dive instructor was great. Dive sits were mixed mostly to seasonal poor visibility. Nature visits on the islands and beaches were amazing. Crew were very personable and food was the best.

A great combination of diving and land activities

My original booking was on the Sea Pearl but I was upgraded to the Sea Star, due to a cancellation. The crew was amazing, really attentive and professional, the food was delicious and although I expect to have only 8 days during the trip I had 13 because they were very flexible in the itinerary and always arranged the diving schedule to match the land activities There were diving every day. There were a few guests in my trip, so we had all the boat for ourselves. The boat has no Wi-Fi on board but you can get a local SIM card that works throughout the itinerary.

We really loved the diving at St. Pierre, the tour at Vallee the Mai, and spending a day on La Digue. Overall, this was a wonderful week, that we would recommend to everyone.

Excellent way to experience the Seychelles above and below sea level on an authentic ship

Enjoyed the trip lots. Seapearl is a unique ship that offers some old world charm and ambience that a modern catamaran or cruise ship simply can’t.

Island visits combined with water activities, professional crew with an interest in their passengers

Superb Diving on the Sea Pearl

First of all the Seychelles themselves are amazing, clean waters and a healthy marine habitat. We were able to see 1-2 octopus during each dive and on one occasion saw 4. Very different from Carribbean diving. Also seeing the different islands along the way was a good way to experience the Seychelles.
