Seychelles Mega Yacht Cruise

The Seychelles Cruise in the Garden of Eden

A mega yacht cruise has to be the ultimate way to really discover the unspoilt island paradise of the Seychelles cruise, hopping from island to island, visiting places which will captivate your senses with their amazing and unique fauna and flora. You can snorkel or dive to discover an amazing underwater world, or walk through centuries-old rain forests with unique species of wild life, including rare black parrots, the world famous ‘Coco de Mer’ palm trees or giant land tortoises.

 

Our 7 night cruise embarking in Victoria harbour, Mahe, gives ample time to explore and enjoy these unique and wonderful islands at a leisurely pace. Cruise and stay packages are available with land stays on the main island of Mahe or the World Heritage island of Praslin. Shorter 3 and 4 night cruises are available as a fantastic addition to a beach holiday, embarking in Mahe and Praslin respectively.

The Motor Yacht Pegasus The 45 meter, twin hulled M/S Pegasus is a modern steel hull motor yacht with spacious and well-appointed interiors renovated in 2002 and 2011. Her twin hulls make her exceptionally spacious and enhance her stability, whilst her shallow draft enables her to navigate secluded bays and coves close to these stunning island coasts.

Life on Board

At the main deck, a lounge area with an American bar leads into a warm and elegant dining room finished with wood and warm natural fabrics. Guests especially enjoy the spacious sun deck and shaded outdoor deck area with an outdoor bar. The ship’s sun deck is equipped with sun beds and deckchairs.

The Cabins

The 21 M/Y Pegasus outside guest cabins are located on the Main Deck, Upper Deck and Bridge Deck, all with large windows. Elegantly decorated, the well – proportioned cabins have either twin or queen sized beds and bathrooms with showers en suite. All cabins are fully air-conditioned, have mini safe, hair dryers, TV, individually controlled piped music and offer ample storage space.
