Itinerary

Overview

Following your arrival, we’ll meet for the first time in Mahe, where M/Y Pegasos, our ship and home for the week, awaits. After boarding at 3pm, you’ll have time to settle into your cabin and enjoy a welcome cocktail, before we set sail for the nearby island of Sainte Anne. Indulge in a refreshing dip in the sea, then jump back on board to tuck into our welcome dinner. We’ll anchor here overnight.

Overview

We’ll leave Sainte Anne this morning and sail to our next destination, Curieuse. What was once a leper colony is now a stunning island, completely uninhabited other than for the giant tortoises that call it home. Be led through the mangroves by a knowledgeable local park guide, then stop for a barbecue lunch under the shade of gently swaying palm trees. This afternoon, you’re free to do as you please, whether that be getting lost in a good book on the beach or grabbing a snorkel and seeing what marine life you can spot in the crystal-clear waters. Our ship will be docked here for the night.

We’ll have lunch here, then depart for Anse Lazio on Praslin Island, widely considered to be one of the best beaches in the world. Unwind on its picture-perfect shores or try your hand at some water sports if you’re feeling particularly energetic. We’ll stay here for the night.
