Nigel and his lovely family gave us a fantastic day out. He met with us a few days before the trip at the hotel to run through the plans and answered all of our questions and concerns. The weather had been really bad for a few days but was perfect on the day. The snorkelling was brilliant with the only... More

Indigo Seychelles - what can I say? This is a family run charter/excursion company and it is special. Nigel took us around in his boat to secluded beautiful beaches, snorkelling several different islands and a Creole BBQ (prepared by his wife and daughter) the six of us will never forget. A fabulous naturalist took us for a hike to see... More

Nigel and his staff gave us 2 memorable days in the Seychelles. Day 1, he picked us up on Praslin and took us snorkeling off Cocos. He identified fish for us. We went to a beach, then on to Curieuse Island for a fantastic Creole BBQ lunch. Relaxed on the beach for a while after lunch. A very knowledgeable naturalist,... More

A truly amazing trip! 去塞舌尔岂能不浮潜呢?在论坛和TA看了很久,还是决定选indigo, 首先,网站做的很好,或多或少证明了态度和能力,也让我更有信心, Jane会先依据你的日子和你想去的地点给你规划出行程与价格, 之后Nigel会来酒店接你并再详细商讨与收款。虽然我们预定的一天因风暴无法出海 (海岛天气,你懂的)我们本来取消出发的,幸好拍摄进度超前了而且Indigo那边也给出更合理的行程安排来迁就我们换岛之旅的时间,节省了中途的船票。 我记忆力不是太好,总是记不住地名,不过肯定的是TA和LP里面推荐的几个岛我们都去了, 说回浮潜吧,真是美呆了,你无法想象海底下如此生意莹然,虽然厄尔雷诺令塞舌尔大部分的珊瑚都死去了,否则颜色会更鲜明生命会更丰富(我们还是尽量对抗下全球变暖吧,小小事情也能帮到大自然呢) 善意提醒下,浮潜时候更需要防晒,我们就是以为在水下不热结果背部都脱皮了(温水煮蛙) 浮潜装备船上都有,迪卡侬的是烂货我们用了几天就出问题了。Nigel还有gopro帮你海里拍照。 最后谈下价格......这个价格的确不便宜,但对比我知道的其他租船旅客在当地的价钱来说,并不算过分,Nigel很专业,精通潜水和海洋知识,看了TA和LP及其他当地推荐,这家算最好的了,人多的话分摊一下会更好,(我们就2个)价格通常600欧一白天包餐,出海钓鱼会贵些(船要一直开而且要离岸很远)餐饮味道相当不错,尤其喜欢那个蜜糖BBQ鸡腿 (比来福士做的还好吃) 其他的倒没啥建议了,反正我们是从此对浮潜和潜水着迷了,打算之后再来潜水! 1.Indigo 's Jane is nice and helpful. 2.Indigo's Nigel is professional and caring. 3.Indigo's Travis did a tasty meal. 4.Use lots of suncream ever if you are snorkeling and your body underwater. 5.It is best to wear some closed clothing since the water beneath...

We contacted Indigo from the UK concerning a bird watching trip to either Aride or Cousin during a five night stay on Praslin. Our email request was efficiently answered and a suggestion made that we hired Gemma as a naturalist guide - the only such guide they use. On arrival in Praslin, Nigel came to our hotel to discuss our... More

We have been recently to the Seychelles for the first time and I absolutely wanted to offer my boyfriend an excursion - however not a 'one size fits all', but a personalized one, corresponding to what we wanted to see.

Me and my husband spent our honeymoon in Seychelles! We booked a fishing trip with Indigo and that was a good experience. Nigel met us from the Jetty and transferred us to the hotel while we discussed all details about fishing. Finally, for the safety reasons fishing was not possible-too rough ocean. But I would advise to use Indigo as... More
