These exotic outposts were made for exploring by sea, with BBQ breaks on deserted islands, every-day swimming stops, and walking tours through the lush interiors. Scattered across the Indian Ocean, some 1,000 miles east of Kenya, these 115 islands offer everything from unsurpassed white sandy beaches to UNESCO Heritage Sites and incredible wildlife.

Highlights of the cruise include stop overs at Praslin, home to the UNESCO-protected Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve and its coco de mer trees, the largest seed in the planet kingdom.

Dense concentrations of nesting seabirds show no fear of humans, allowing for fabulous photo opportunities.
