Seychelles is certainly considered one of the most picturesque places on our planet. The island state is the favorite place for most tourists to go on vacation. But not all of them prefer a lazy beach holiday. Knowledgeable people go there for yachting. Such a trip gives tourists the opportunity to get acquainted with the local culture and see all the islands in all their splendor.

By buying a yacht on the website you can make a sea tour route. Seychelles is divided into: internal (inhabited, where you can refuel with fuel and buy provisions) and external. The distance between the inner islands is about 20 kilometers, which makes the trip safe, enjoyable and informative, because it gives you the opportunity not only to enjoy the sea, but also to explore most of the land of the Seychelles. The inner islands are hidden from the winds and washed by a weak current.

Traveling between the outer islands is more difficult, the distances between them are much longer and sometimes reach 130 km. Unlike the inner islands, the outer islands are subject to fast currents and strong gusts of winds. Yachting should be done on vessels that can reach a speed of at least 60 knots. By the way, this is a mandatory official requirement of the state.

During a sea trip, you can also go diving, since the relief in the Seychelles favors this. Unlike the inner islands, where there are no significant shoals around the reefs, you need to be much more careful with the outer ones. Due to the ever-expanding reefs, there is not a single reliable map. To avoid an unpleasant situation, when planning yachting on the outer islands, hire a good captain who knows the area.

You can go on a sea trip to the Seychelles at any time of the year, the vast expanses of water will not allow you to encounter other tourists even at the peak of the season. Rains, like storms, are rare on tropical islands, so yachting is also suitable for those who are at the helm for the first time.

Even if you are looking for solitude with the water surface, do not neglect to get closer to the islands. More than half of the local territory is included in the list of protected areas, where unprecedented turtles, birds and plants live. Granite and coral formations will appeal even to an experienced traveler.

Be careful with the outer contour of the islands and carefully plot your route, since there are not so many bays available for parking and when approaching them you need to take into account the shoals and rocky bottom.
