The Amirantes Archipelago is made up of around 20 islands, coralline atolls and uplifted sand cays spanning 150km in Seychellois waters. These Outer Islands of the Seychelles are home to some of the healthiest marine ecosystems and best dive sites anywhere in the Indian Ocean, with coral thriving and relatively few visitors to this remote haven. Travelling that bit further away from the popular Inner Islands of the Seychelles will reward divers and snorkellers with excellent marine life sightings, making this a great destination for intrepid divers.

In Depth 

In the world of diving, the Seychelles gets a bad reputation for damaged coral reefs and dwindling reef fish populations, but this couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to diving holidays in the Amirante Islands, with many conservation projects having been set up to preserve the delicate and important ecosystems that thrive in these waters. St. Joseph atoll is a shining example of this, with regular sightings of marine megafauna such as manta rays frequenting the atoll, as well as a healthy population of large sharks; lemon sharks, tiger sharks, grey reef, white tip and black tip reef sharks which patrol the virtually pristine reefs.
