Tell us about your perfect boat and let our team of experts find it for you.
Seychelles is made up of 115 islands each with their own beautiful scenery. The islands lie in the Indian Ocean off the coast of East Africa. The main ones are Praslin, Mahe and La Digue in the Inner Circle while the Outer Islands include the Amirantes and the Farquhar Group. Many, such as Denis Island and Bird Island, are made up of coral giving them a distinct character.
You have hundreds of tropical beaches, hidden coves, secret grottoes and safe anchorages to explore when you hire a gulet in Seychelles. Or, select a different style of boat from our extensive Zizoo range that includes yachts, motorboats and catamarans.
Hire a motorboat in Seychelles that sleeps from two to 12 or more people and, if you have the correct certification, skipper it yourself or choose to employ the services of an experienced captain for a truly relaxing holiday. Our boats come with standard or optional extras such as watersports equipment, air-conditioning, Bimini tops, sprayhoods and, where available, wifi access.
When you rent a boat in Seychelles you'll enjoy safe sailing conditions all year round with pleasant temperatures of between 24 °C and 31 °C. Most of the area is safely outside the cyclone zone. Rainfall is low and tends to fall in the late afternoon or during the night making it easy to plan your sailing excursions. From May to October, the prevailing winds are from the southeast and as the islands lie close to the Equator the hours of daylight and darkness are roughly 12 hours each.
The two main marinas in Seychelles are:
⚓ Eden Island Marina on Grand Anse Mahe is one of the main marinas you'll use when you hire a catamaran in Seychelles. It is a deep water harbour with a wide range of services for crews to use including a swimming pool. It provides mooring for boats of any size.
⚓ Angel Fish Marina is in Roche Caiman on Victoria Island. It is close to an airport making it a good place from which to start your holiday when you hire a gulet in Seychelles. The marina has a basic range of facilities.
You can also break your sailing holiday in Seychelles at anchorages that include:
⚓ Ille Curieuse in Anse Volbert Village, Baie Sainte Anne
⚓ Baie Chevalier in Anse Kerlan, Grand'Anse Praslin and
⚓ Sainte Ane in De Quincey Village, English River
When you rent a yacht in Seychelles you can simply cruise from island to island; swimming, sunbathing or fishing as you go or be more energetic and dive into island culture. We recommend:
⚓ Visiting the beach resort of Beau Vallon on Mahe Island from where you can hike the stunning Anse Major range
⚓ Playing a round of golf on the championship-level course on Praslin Island
⚓ Taking part in watersports that include big game fishing, scuba diving, snorkelling and kitesurfing
