In the middle of the Indian Ocean, Seychelles is a country of lush landscapes and turquoise seas, which enchants its visitors with its untouched nature. Below the surface is no different, the Archipelago, recognized for its enormous diversity of marine species, brings together different destinations for diving.

With areas considered World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, the 115 islands are a reference in sustainable tourism and in the preservation of the diversity of local species. Check out some of the options below to discover the marine life and underwater beauty of Seychelles. 

Aldabra Atoll

A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982, Aldabra Atoll is one of the most unspoilt and diverse underwater regions in Seychelles. The Atoll has more than 2500 km2 of protected area and is home to one of the largest populations of Green Turtles in the Indian Ocean.

Another highlight are the corals in the region, which are more than 125 years old and are considered one of the oldest in the world. At the destination, both scuba diving and snorkeling are carried out since, even on the surface, it is possible to observe different species. In Aldabra Atoll, visits are always guided and scheduled to ensure safety and preservation of the environment.

Located north of Mahé – one of the main islands of the Archipelago -, is L'Îlote, a small island full of beauty. The island, which has a granite formation, is one of the most popular diving regions in the Archipelago.

Among the differentials is the possibility of diving at night, since the species of corals with fluorescent tones stand out even more in this period. The underwater rock formations are inhabited by several species of tropical fish, as well as stingrays and whale sharks.

Purposely sunk in 2008, the Aldebaran Shipwreck is one of the most beautiful and preserved shipwrecks in the Seychelles.

Among the species found there are moray eels, lion fish, bat fish, giant groupers, as well as different species of sharks. The experience that combines history and nature is suitable only for advanced divers, as it is 40 meters deep.
