Seychelles offers some of the best diving in the Indian Ocean. The Outer Islands consist of 74 coral atolls and reef islands.

Wreck dives are available in some areas, while wall dives, drop-off dives and drift diving opportunities might only be found on the islands to the south.

Aldabra expedition

Aldabra has inspired ancient explorers, some of the world's most famous scientists and the modern travellers of today. The name itself is a mystery, believed to be a word of Arabic origin but with any number of theories about its actual meaning, which could be 'green' or 'door-knocker' or possibly the navigational star Aldebaran.

Indeed, it seems there has always been a mythical aura attached to the name of the most far-flung and isolated of all the islands of the Seychelles archipelago. The giant tortoises on the island form by far the world's largest population and the marine life is prolific. The last surviving flightless bird of the Indian Ocean, the Aldabra Rail, is found only here as are many other unique land birds and it is a vital breeding ground for turtles and seabirds.

Charles Darwin himself, whose work in the Galapagos is largely responsible for the archipelago's esteemed status as naturalist's paradise, recognized Aldabra's unique natural properties, as well as being the only other place in the world aside from the Galapagos where giant tortoises could be found naturally. He also recommended to British authorities that they ensure the atoll would be protected from exploitation or development.

Despite its status as one of the world's most strictly protected natural wonders, travel to Aldabra is still – and will likely always be - incredibly difficult due to its extreme isolation. With expedition vessel MV Maya’s Dugong, operated by Silhouette Cruises, one of the most recognized names in live-aboard cruising in the Seychelles, a handful of visitors will be able to experience the atoll of Aldabra and its fascinating sights and treasures as part of an in-depth eco-tourism and diving expedition
