It was an amazing trip given I had booked the trip only one day before. The pickup was arranged on time via whatsapp and the guide was good and could speak English and French both for our mixed group. We were 5 couples and the trip started off at around 9:30AM after all pickups. The first thing on the itinerary was a snorkeling dive. Then we went to cariuse island where we did a nature trail of around 1.7kms via beautiful forest area. Then we spent some time taking pics with the tortoises and had an amazing barbeque lunch where rice, lentil, barbeque chicken and fish were served along with salads and beer. After that we went for another snorkeling dive which was beautiful to see even from the glass bottom boat. And then capped it off with takamaka drinks on a secluded beach which is accessible only by boat. Overall worth the price.
Great day out. Due to weather, we needed to change from the glass bottom to a more high powered boat, but it was great we had this option so our tour could still go. Once we reached safe waters near our first destination, we snorkeled. Lots of fish to see! At Curieuse, there is a 1.7km gentle hike. It’s quite rocky so wear a light pair of trainers or water shoes. The tour, especially the mangroves, were fascinating. The tortoise sanctuary is a delight. So many gentle giants walking around. There’s also a nursery for tortoises from birth to 5yo. After a delicious lunch of grilled fish, chicken, and salads, we had some beach time. Then, it was off to snorkel again before ending our day with some rum and reggae on the beach. All in all, a great day!
The day my sister and I had with Liroy, Ryan, and Lionel was absolutely incredible. We had an amazing day with so many sights, good drinks, and delicious food! We learned so much about Seychelles and saw sea turtles and hundreds of beautiful fish while snorkeling in gorgeous locations. There was no pressure to move to the next spot and Liroy was very flexible and gave us a lot of freedom. He also made us feel very safe and comfortable. Our expectations were exceeded and we can’t thank them enough for giving us one of the best experiences of our lives! Can’t wait to come back!
Excellent trip. Small group (we were a group of three and were joined by only two others (and they opted to cut the day short, so we had the boat to ourselves for the other part of the day). For Curieuse, I would recommend better shoes than flipflops (my choice), as there is a possibility to hike to the other side of the island and the way is a bit rocky. Loads of photo opportunities on the whole trip. Snorkeling was good as well, we even saw a glimps of a sea turtle (apparently we were lucky). All on all, good value and a fun day out.
It was just great !!! The guide was very nice. Harmond , the big bos ( I am not sure I am spelling is name well...), he is a very nice man. We have seen manny birds on the island and thousands fish when we were snorkelling . Every one must it !!!! Rafael
