March - November


The islands of the Seychelles enjoy a year-round warm tropical climate, generally governed by two opposing trade winds. The south-easterly trades blow from May to September bringing drier and windier conditions ideal for sailing. From October to March the gentler north-west trades provide calmer seas but a higher chance of refreshing showers. Scuba divers will find April, May, October and November have the warmest seas and visibility is often 30 metres plus

Guest Testimonial

The drivers drove to a consistently high standard of safety, which as a Director of Safety and Security was both notable and important to me! Vehicles were always clean and appeared to be well maintained.
