Trip details

Go on a Robinson Crusoe-style sailing tour aboard the stunning Oplezir Catamaran. While cruising along Praslin's scenic North East Coast, you'll visit St.Pierre Island, Curieuse Island Reserve, and the picturesque Anse Georgette Beach.

Your day starts with a pleasurable crossing from Mahe to Praslin aboard the Cat Cocos high-speed ferry. Upon arrival in Praslin, you will transfer to Oplezir and set sail to St. Pierre Island, located just north of Praslin, where you will be given the opportunity to swim, snorkel and take pictures.

Your catamaran cruise continues to Curieuse Island, where you will visit the Curieuse Island Reserve and meet the giant Aldabra land tortoises. Here, you will go on a one-hour guided tour of the island through the mountains and mangroves, eventually ending up at Anse José Beach. Around noon, you will be served a delicious BBQ lunch, after which you will again set sail to Anse Georgette Beach for a swim and photo opportunities. Your voyage ends with a scenic cruise along Praslin Island's North East Coast before being dropped back at the Praslin Jetty for your Cat Cocos ferry transfer back to Mahe.

Please note that while the tour requires a minimum of 20 participants, it is rarely cancelled due to insufficient numbers. Should this happen, a CTS representative will notify you before the tour and give you the option to rebook for another date or to receive a full refund.
