The Ocean Estate

Activities

Whether you’re in search of rest and rejuvenation or raw adventure, Seychelles offers endless possibilities for both, with a whole world of natural wonder existing just beyond your door.

Set sail around the islands and discover giant tortoises and green sea turtles. Dive into crystal clear waters and witness whale sharks, dolphins, coral reefs and over 900 species of fish. Take a trail through virgin forest and be amazed by rare birds and scenic beauty. Head for an uninhabited island by helicopter, or if you prefer to slow the pace right down, a day of pampering awaits at the luxurious Banyan Tree Spa, followed by a romantic moonlit meal served by your own private butler on the beach.

The range of activities include:

  • Deep sea cruises
  • Sailing
  • Sea safaris
  • Game-fishing and fly-fishing
  • Diving and snorkeling
  • Helicopter rides
  • Nature walks and hikes
  • Swimming
