Venture Into the Vast Expanses of the Indian Ocean, Where Rich History, Abundant & Rare Wildlife Experiences, Exotic Flavours & Great Cultural Diversity Await

Welcome to a world of exciting and turbulent history, where a fascinating mix of cultures come together. Retrace the footsteps of great explorers, get lost in the heavy scents of colourful and eclectric markets and explore ancient citadels. The islands of the Indian Ocean are everything you expect them to be, and more. Picture perfect island scenery, while below the surface you’ll be awed by the crystal clear waters and vibrant marine life. 

Sri Lanka. Pristine rainforest. Ancient rock fortresses. Wildlife aplenty. And some of the most perfect beaches on the planet. There are so many reasons to visit Sri Lanka. One day you could be hiking the Knuckles Mountain Range, high in Sri Lanka’s hill country; the next, travelling through tea plantations. When you start each morning with curry, hoppers and a cup of the local tea, you know it’s going to be a good day. Climb Lion Rock, a dramatic carved-rock fortress in Sigiriya, and explore Jaffna in the island’s north, previously off-limits to travellers. The only struggle you’ll have in Sri Lanka is knowing where to start.

Seychelles. If an exotic Seychelles cruise is what you have always dreamed of, you are in the right place. Seychelles is the perfect destination for both summer and winter cruises due to its warm climate. Discover this paradise on one of our yachts and experience a unique island-hopping voyage. Either you seek a romantic honeymoon or just fancy an enticing cruise to the Seychelles, this is the ultimate experience for you and the people you love. Cruise the Seychelles from Mahe or Praslin and explore the extraordinary flora and fauna within a small ship environment. 

Reunion. Reunion Island is a little bit of France in the Indian Ocean and an absolutely stunning place. Explore its truly awesome and dramatic scenery including the Central Highlands with their spectacularly rugged peaks of dormant volcanoes which cradle huge natural amphitheatres known as cirques.

Madagascar. An incredible verdant and beautiful island. Madagascar is unique; the animals, plants, people and landscapes that make up this thousand mile long island are unlike anywhere else. It is a country that has long remained obscure as a destination and is relatively unknown even amongst the most serious of travellers. The long separation from the African mainland has given rise to its amazing number of unique species of flora and fauna.

Maldives. The Maldives are famous for their sumptuous coral islets and turquoise lagoons. At the heart of the archipelago, discover Baa Atoll. This exceptional site, listed as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve since 2011, is a perfectly preserved tropical paradise. The fifty-odd islets that make up the atoll offer visitors long stretches of white sand beaches with crystal-clear water, lined with palm trees.
