It was our first visit to the Seychelles (our weddingmoon) and we wanted to really make the most of it. Indigo offered everything we wanted in one day trip, something we could not find with other group boat trips. We wanted to snorkel around Cocos island and Felicite with the hope of finding a turtle and we also wanted to... More

Nigel and his son took my wife and I on a wonderful excursion to visit several islands. We were definitely not the easiest couple to deal with as I do not know how to swim and my wife does not know how to bike. Nevertheless, Nigel had both of us snorkeling in the deep ocean, and biking through La Digue... More

I would back to Seychelles again, it has more beaches than I have ever seen the islands are all granite and most of the birds are only found on these islands, even the coco de mer is only found there, most of the people are creole which is where my grandma was born, their backgrounds are very mixed mostly French,...

One unforgetable day out in the sea for visiting the Islands around Praslin. Nigel showed us the most interesting places to see such as Curieuse, Félicité, St-Pierre, grande sœur, petite sœur. We stopped for snorkling at Coco where we had the chance to swim beside a big turtle. We also saw a nurse shark! The dinner prepared by his team... More
