Seychelles: The best diving spots around the islands in the Indian Ocean

Although the underwater world of the Seychelles is one of the best diving areas in the world due to its beauty and diversity, the islands in the Indian Ocean are still a relatively undiscovered destination for diving trips.

Due to its location on the equator, water temperatures between 25 and 30 degrees invite you to dive all year round.

Diving tips for the Seychelles

There are around 80 different diving and snorkeling sites around the Seychelles and all of them are easily accessible from the diving bases on the three main islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue. The main islands, together with 29 other small islets, form the sea area of ​​the Indian Islands - also known as the Seychelles Bank. The unique, bizarre rock formations of the islands form the only remains above the water of an ancient, sunken mountain range. Reefs overgrown with sponges, colorful fish warmth and corals invite curious divers on an unforgettable voyage of discovery to the fantastic underwater world. In order to enjoy this natural spectacle with unrestricted view, the sea should generally be calmer. This is especially the case in the months of March to May and September to November. At this time, the underwater visibility is particularly good with more than 30 meters. Night dives are also highly recommended in the Seychelles. The diving centers offer excursions for all abilities, from beginners to divemasters. Vacationers also have the opportunity to rent their diving equipment here.
