Seychelles cruises and yacht charterIn a nutshell, the Seychelles islands are different, faithfully echoing their epithet: another world. Among other island destinations offering processed products and experiences, the Seychelles islands cling jealously to their primordial roots, recalling that time when dinosaurs still breathed, tectonic plates fractured and ancient continents first began to divide. Since 75 million years, when this sparkling archipelago of 115 isles first floated free of the giant landmass of Pangea to occupy its solitary niche in the azure expanse of the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles islands have remained a sanctuary. A place where Nature's bounty, trodden underfoot elsewhere, has been conserved and protected in such forms as the planet's tiniest frog, the super-rare jellyfish tree the wondrous coco-de-mer and Aldabra, the world's largest raised coral atoll. The Seychelles islands are also home to some of the most spectacular seabird colonies in the world as well as 13 species and 17 subspecies that occur nowhere else on earth. Classed among the rarest species to be found among the islands are theSeychelles Scops Owl, Magpie Robin, Paradise Flycatcher Seychelles Warbler, Black Parrot, the flightless White-throated Railand the Seychelles White Eye. Inhabited since a mere 250 years, today, the Seychelles islands are still unbelievably untouched, their primeval beauty cascading from lushly forested granite peaks, through ancient hillside glades to the grandeur of a pristine, sapphire ocean. One of the few places left on the planet where to rediscover our ancient past, the freedom to roam free that is our birthright... and ourselves. Finally, there is a place where you can still tread in the footsteps of the ancient mariners as they first beheld, open-mouthed, the breathtaking exquisiteness of these island jewels. A place to experience the same wonder as the first explorers as they wandered among the granite-studded hillsides to find precious timber, a flora and fauna bewildering in its richness and diversity and a sense of tranquillity and calm to rival that of Heaven itself.
