The itinery will take you around to quiet diving spots of the granitic islands: Mahé, Frégate, Praslin and La Digue. The Explorer I’s cruise speed allows you to move quickly from site to site.
The dive spots were selected for their low attendance and diversity. Frégate’s aera is never diving and the spots are practically virgin, with a great variety of fauna.
Each dive is different and you will never do the same (except at your request).
Night’s moorings are selected for their comfort (calm waters) and the beauty of the sites (beaches, coves) allowing swimming and snorkeling, with corals and fishes, or even for a night dive. You can also beach on the islands with our dinghy, to enjoy the beautiful crystal water. Depending on the location, you can walk around a village, discover local life, with its small shops or have a drink in a tropical place.
