As is true in most of the Seychelles islands, Alphonse is also quite famous for the variety of water activities that are offered here. Alphonse's geographical location is the main reason why so many bigger fish and aquatic animals venture close to the shore and are frequent visitors. This makes activities such as scuba diving and snorkelling extremely delightful.
Scuba Diving & Snorkelling in Alphonse Island
Alphonse is the only place in the Outer Island Group that offers opportunities for scuba diving. The visibility of the waters, as well as the warm conditions and the protection of the lagoon, makes it a suitable place for Scuba Diving as well as Snorkelling. The corals also make for a spectacular sight. If individuals indulge in these activities, they are bound to come across several colourful reef fish, as well as pelagic and shark fish types. Green Turtles, Hammerhead Sharks, and Marbled Rays also make appearances.
Other Water Sports in the Island
Other activities that are offered to guests and can be taken up during the stay at Alphonse are paddling, rowing, sailing, water- biking, kayaking, and stand up water paddling. Booking for sunset cruises as well as dolphin spotting (which includes the difficult to spot spinner dolphins) and Manta ray spotting is also available.
