The trip starts in the late afternoon near Anse Reunion (at the small “Maki Shop”).
Here, you will meet Jonathan or a member of his team and slowly make your way further south. The boat will take you down the western coast of La Digue, with its 300m elevation. In the opposite direction, you will see Praslin, Round Island, and even Silhouette Island in the distance. Behind this impressive backdrop of three islands, the sun sets each and every night, painting the sky in a deep red colour. During this tour, you will also pass by Anse Marron Bay, as well as the most beautiful beach in the world, Anse Source d'Argent. The huge granite boulders will glow in this light in the same deep shade of red as the sky. If you haven't done so already, you will definitely take your camera out to snap a few pictures at what is one of the most-photographed locations worldwide. After the sun has set, you will return to the jetty near the Maki Shop.
The trip will end here at around 6:30pm, but you can keep it going by treating yourself to a delicious, Creole meal in the “Chez Marston” restaurant, which is located close by.
Jonathan is the founder of Liberty Charter, a tour provider based on La Digue. Liberty charter is a family-based company, and one of the best in the Seychelles. They are experts at providing their clients with truly authentic Seychelles boating excursions, offering a variety of charters throughout the pristine waters of the Seychelles. When the weather is at its best, the tours always start with an introductory 'sailing promenade', where guests can enjoy the best view of La Digue from the ocean.
This family-run company will be one of the best choices you make on La Digue. Jonathan has more than fifteen years' experience cruising the waters of these unique islands. Sometimes his son accompanies the tours. His brother Daran is also a skipper, and knows all of the best places for your snorkelling trip.
