All aboard m/y Pegasus for Saga’s new Seychelles Island Explorer tour • Choice of regional flights from Birmingham, Gatwick, Glasgow & Manchester

Live the dream: Island-hopping in ‘paradise’

Sail around the paradise islands of the Seychelles to discover powder-soft sands and sapphire blue seas on Saga’s new 10-night touring holiday.

Travel in style on m/y Pegasus, a 45-metre motor yacht with 21 air-conditioned cabins.

Relax in the elegant lounge or enjoy views from the upper deck when taking a break from sunbathing or snorkelling in the warm, clear water.

Choose to eat alfresco or in the dining room on this relaxed and comfortable vessel - and with a maximum of 42 passengers on board expect a fun-filled, friendly atmosphere.

As passengers sail around the archipelago there will much to see: Step back in time on La Digue, one of the most photographed islands of the Seychelles, where the community still uses age-old methods in its coconut production and boat-building.

General Gordon of Khartoum believed Praslin was the original Garden of Eden. Passengers will see why during a tour of the Vallee de Mai, where the soaring palms of the coco de mer grow in abundance. Guests can also hope to spot some of the rarest birds on earth, including the black parrot.

Explore pretty Mahé, with one of the smallest capitals on the planet – Victoria. On Cousin Island search for wildlife, including the endangered Seychelles Warbler and Magpie Robin. The island is also an important breeding site for Hawksbill Turtles.

Saga’s Island Explorer offers passengers a chance to experience new destinations each day;
from lazing on idyllic hidden beaches to discovering the flora and fauna in some of the most beautiful settings on earth, this holiday takes island hopping to a new level - paradise!
