The 115 granitic islands of the Seychelles, ringed with pristine white sand beaches, are a sanctuary for some of the rarest species of flora and fauna on earth.

Join this seven night cruise aboard the small modern schooner S/Y Sea Star to island-hop in comfort between Mahé, Praslin, La Digue, Aride, Curieuse and Saint Pierre to examine their carefully protected ecosystems, some unique to just one island.

Highlights:

  • See incredible endemic bird life including the Seychelles black parrot as well as seabirds such as fairy terns and shearwaters
  • Discover ultra rare creatures such as the world’s smallest frog and largest tortoise, only found in one place on earth
  • Explore six stunningly different  islands aboard exclusively chartered S/Y Sea Star, with just 9 cabins

Accompanied by Cambridge zoologist and conservationist Dr Justin Gerlach, explore the mist-forests of Mahé and the mangroves of Curieuse in search of the vast Coco-de-mer plant and the ultra scarce jellyfish tree.
