ASTOVE SCUBA DIVING ITINERARY

11125 pp
7 Nights

Dive the best sites in the Seychelles

The coral reefs around Astove are some of the most colourful in the Seychelles because of an abundance of beautiful soft corals. You will revel in close encounters with big pelagic species that come quite shallow due to the dramatic change in depths along the wall.

 

Be one of a lucky few divers to ever experience diving the sheer drop-off of ‘The Astove Wall’, consisting of the flat and reef dropping a vertical 90 degrees from ankle deep water to over 1,000 metres over a short distance. The Astove Wall is covered in fissures and overhangs with some of the most beautiful seascape in all of the Seychelles. To top it off, it is just five minutes from the lodge.

1 single tank dive with the option to add more
