La Digue Island
Situated about 50 km from Mahe Island, La Digue, although only half the size of Praslin, offers its visitors stunning beaches, rare wildlife and turquoise water. La Digue can be easily reached by boat from Mahe in about 1h30 of cruising.

The main attraction of this island is the most famous Anse Source d’Argent beach which is said to be one of the most photographed beaches in the world (going to Union Estate and Anse Source d’Argent beach has an entrance fee of 115 SCR per person not included in our prices).

With only a few vehicles on the whole island, the best way of getting around is to hire a bicycle or club car. Easy and flat roads will lead you almost all the way around the island, making this the ideal way to explore La Digue (renting a bicycle costs generally 150 SCR and is not included in our price).

Best Boating experience with the best guides!!

Michael and Glenn are superb guides! They went above and beyond in so many ways. They arrived to the dock early, had Bluetooth connection, knew interesting facts about every island we cruised by, and even had a freshwater spray which feels great after snorkeling. We went snorkeling in Praslin then all over La Digue. I’ve been on many boat excursions in the USA, Carribean, South America, and none of them had the knowledge and level of service as Creole Odyssea. I love when people have a passion for their jobs and these guys absolutely do. I recommend renting the club car instead of bikes. The driver is Michael’s cousin, and the club car allows you to see so much more of the island. I imagine the bikes would be tiring and the pathways can be uneven so not the safest thing either. Chez Jules offers the best view for lunch in my opinion.

Taking the Creole Odyssea trip to La Digue and Praslin was absolutely the highlight of our trip to the Seychelles. Michael and Joelen were amazing throughout the boat trip. Stephanie was a perfect point of contact, so helpful, and very prompt and thorough in her responses. They were very helpful, flexible, and accommodating in adjusting around some bad weather. The trip was perfect. During the ride, we learned about some of the various islands, birds, and fish in the area. La Digue and Praslin were each incredibly beautiful in their own right. Thank you so much to the folks at Creole Odyssea for making our trip something truly unforgettable!
Highly recommended

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to enjoy a great day exploring the islands from Mahé. Me and my sister went on this tour last week and we were surprised how well it was organised. The boat trip on its on was something you want to experience. The boat's very nice and comfortable, the crew very friendly and helpful. We were given spot on tips what to do once on the island which make everything very easy. It was a truly perfect day.
En toppendag!

Vi hade en helt fantastisk dag ombord och på land. Arrangören berättade och förklarade allt vi ville veta och mer därtill. Han var även duktig på att berätta om alla öar vi passerade. Vi fick låna snorklingsutrustning (som ingick) och snorklade. Det var som att simma i ett saltvattensakvarium fullt med ’hitta Nemo-fiskar’. Därefter åkte vi till Curieuse island och hälsade på sköldpaddorna. Efter vi varit där åkte vi till la Digue och kollade runt o var på 2 olika stränder och åt lunch. Dagen gick otroligt fort och var väldigt välorganiserad. Dessutom hade vi turen att få se ett delfiner vid 2 tillfällen under dagen. Den här turen rekommenderar vi verkligen!
Great day out!

Friendly staff, and exceptional booking experience! Boat was excellent and clean. Although must give a warning regarding the choppy ocean water. Not for the faint-hearted! Thank you, Stephanie, Michael & Glenny!
