Diving in Seychelles

The large islands of the archipelago and the seabed surrounding them are mostly composed of granite rocks, while the smaller ones are usually coral. From here – the unique underwater landscapes of the Seychelles archipelago. Visibility under water usually exceeds 30 meters, and the water temperature is kept at +26 … + 38 ° C. There are more than 900 species of fish, 100 genera of shells and 50 varieties of corals. It is not surprising that SUBIOS, the annual festival of films made underwater in the Indian Ocean, is held in Seychelles.

Minimal currents, abundance of fish, multi-colored corals and the probability of above average to see large ocean dwellers such as manta rays, turtles and white sharks — all this makes the Seychelles a first-class diving area. The best time to dive on most islands is from April to May and from September to October.
