Praslin Dream is the name of this wonderful 8 days and 7 nights sailing trip around the Seychelles archipelago on a charming catamaran. Explore the Seychelles from the ocean and discover the most beautiful sides of the country. The ship departs every Monday from Mahé, and will take you to some of the world's best sandy beaches and most breathtaking snorkelling spots.
Activities and specials:
- There are large sun mattresses on-board.
- Full sets of snorkelling equipment are available on-board.
- The catamaran also has two kayaks for use in shallow water, which is great fun!
- As well as up to 24 guests, there will be a skipper, cook, steward, and sailor on-board.
Clarification of price: Prices refer to two people per night, including full board, excluding drinks
Day 1: Mahé - St. Anne Marine Park
The boat departs Mahé at the Angel Fish Marine, at Roche Caiman on Mahé. Sail to the beautiful Sainte Anne Marine Park, which is great for snorkelling. When the day draws to a close, the catamaran will drop anchor here, and you can settle down for the first night on your Seychelles cruise.
Day 2: St. Anne Marine Park - Cocos Island - La Digue
On day 2, continue your trip around the Sainte Anne Marine Park, including some of its great snorkelling spots. After lunch, snorkel around Cocos Island, a real 'Robinson Crusoe' affair. This island is exceptionally beautiful thanks to its shapes and colours, and its underwater scenery is equally breathtaking thanks to the plenitude of fish species. Finally, you'll anchor in front of La Digue's picturesque harbour for the night.
Day 3: La Digue
Rent a bike to explore this wonderful island. Ride in the shade of tall palm trees, past houses with palm-leaf roofs, small factories, pristine beaches, and shining granite boulders. You'll also find Anse Source d'Argent, perhaps the most beautiful beach in the Seychelles. In fact, La Digue is probably the most attractive of all the Seychelles islands, and this beauty is preserved thanks to the lack of cars, with bikes and ox carts serving as the main means of transportation. Once again, the catamaran will anchor in La Digue harbour.
Day 4: La Digue - Cousin - Bay St. Anne (Praslin)
Begin your day with a trip to Cousin Island. This island has been a nature reserve since 1968 due to its rare bird species and giant tortoise population. In the afternoon, the journey carries on to Praslin. While on Praslin, you should take a trip to the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Vallée de Mai, which is home to the world's largest coconut species, the Coco de Mer. For the night, the catamaran will anchor in Bay St. Anne.
Day 5: Bay St. Anne - Grande Soeur - Curieuse or Anse Petite Cour (Praslin)
Grande Soeur is made up of two steep, rocky mounds, connected by a small coconut plantation. Here, you'll enjoy a delicious beach barbeque, visit the island, and try your hand at a few different watersports. Finally, you'll spend the night either on Curieuse, or on the beach at Anse Petite Cour.
Day 6: Curieuse - Saint Pierre - Anse Volbert or Anse Lazio (Praslin)
Curieuse forms part of the marine national park, and is home to more than 100 giant tortoises, giving you plenty to see during your stopover. After lunch, take a trip to the small island of Saint Pierre, which is one of the Seychelles most photogenic locations. Explore the unique underwater beauty of the region, then spend the night anchored at Anse Volbert or Anse Lazio.
Day 7: Anse Volbert/Anse Lazio - Mahé
Go snorkelling, swimming, or try out some watersports on one of Praslin's most beautiful beaches, then head to Mahé in the afternoon for the last night of your trip.
Day 8: Disembark the catamaran on Mahé in the early morning.

It was really a great week. Everything was great! Before we left we had to wait about 2 hours for the cook. If the departure had been planned 2 hours later, we would not have noticed. But we were on vacation :-)) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The catamaran tour was a sensational experience. We would have liked to have spent both weeks completely on the ship. The food was delicious and our two cabins were of size and facilities. The crew was nice and we always felt very comfortable and safe. Deduction is for the following points (ship Lagoon 52 / Colombo) -the ship was broken, we could only with 3-4 hours late in Mahe expire. As a result we had about 30 minutes to go swimming in St. Anne Marine Park. Too bad ... sailing was hardly possible the whole week. On day 1 the rope was tangled up by the mainsail, which could only be repaired after a few days in Praslin. Shortly thereafter, the rope is torn. For several hours an attempt was made to mend the sail. We were meanwhile dropped off on Curieuse and had to wait 3 hours longer than agreed, with children and without food and enough drinks. One of us swam to another Dream Yacht ship and asked for help. After some back and forth was clarified, where our ship is and in the end we still got sandwiches and drinks from this ship. The next day another unsuccessful attempt to mend the sail. -The "railing" on one side of the catamaran was broken. The cable just hung down. -A drawer in a cabin did not open. There should obviously have been life vests in there. The tender boat, which was originally on the ship, was already broken before leaving and could not be pumped anymore. After some back and forth, the boat was changed. However, the engine was broken in the new boat, so we were stuck in the small transfers several times and had to wait for minutes until it ran again. - In a cabin, a curtain was missing. Not nice when you sleep in a port ship-to-ship and see the neighbors directly into the cabin. On a positive note: -USB connection in the cabins for charging devices-when changing clothes on Praslin a piece of clothing was lost. However, it was then searched very dedicated and we could take it in the end on Mahe again. For the trip itself I would award 5 points. The above points do not go for a trip in this price range and we would have expected a bit more in terms of "troubleshooting". Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
