Experience a magical New Year's Eve with PONANT in the heart of the Seychelles.

Set sail for a 14-day expedition cruise to discover the most beautiful islands of the SeychellesPONANT invites you to follow an unforgettable itinerary aboard Le Jacques-Cartier, against a backdrop of turquoise waters and coconut palms.  

Leaving from Victoria, the archipelago’s capital, fall under the spell of the idyllic landscapes, with their exceptional flora and fauna.

On Curieuse Island, reputed for its red earth and for the Aldabra giant tortoises that have taken up residence there, take an excursion to the heart of the mangrove.

Then, you will discover the island of Aride, an unspoiled delight of the Indian Ocean, home to thousands of birds including some endemic species.

In Praslin, don’t miss the chance to visit the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve. There you will find sea coconuts, gigantic fruits with a very evocative shape, nicknamed the “love nut”.

During your cruise, you will have many opportunities to dive or snorkel, especially in the coral paradise islands of Poivre, Bijoutier and Saint-François.

Another highlight of your trip will be the port of call at Aldabra, a gigantic coral atoll that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Edged with mangrove and fine sandy beaches, it is home to the largest colony of land turtles in the world.

Another highlight of your trip will be the port of call at Cosmoledo. This magnificent atoll owes its nickname, the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean, to the beauty of its unique underwater world. Diving in this paradise lagoon becomes an extraordinary experience.

You will call at Astove Atoll. Renowned for the beauty and diversity of its underwater world, it is home to a large population of tortoises and sea turtles. You will undoubtedly have the opportunity to observe some in their natural environment.

Before you return to MahéLe Jacques-Cartier will chart a course for the coral island of Rémire and the sublime beaches of La Digue, some of the most renowned of the Seychelles

The encounters with the wildlife described above illustrate possible experiences only and cannot be guaranteed.
