We have just spent late Saturday to Wednesday morning on Pegasos, a 21 berth French yacht. We cruised from Mahe to Praslin stopping at various islands to walk, explore, swim, snorkel, visit conservation sites. The full cruise is Saturday to Saturday, seven nights, Mahe to Mahe. We booked through Seychelles Travel in the U.K. who offer the four and seven night options and we got off as we are now golfing at Constance Lemuria. If we had done seven days we would have lost a day flying back to Praslin.
The food on board is excellent served both in the dining room, outside on deck (buffet) and once a beach BBQ on the island we were on. Fish and neat BBQ’ed before us. All food is plentiful, lots of it with local fish every night; red snapper, grouper, jack fish and various meats. Dinner when not a buffet includes a starter, soup course, mains, pudding and sometimes a salad course. Plenty of other salads and many local recipes. I was never hungry. We cannot fault the food which is a high point.
Meals are taken at tables of 4, 6, 8 so you get to know your fellow passengers very quickly. We had a fantastic group. English, Welsh, Spanish, German, Canadian, Finnish, Australian with two singletons.
For our trip the yacht was half full about 20 passengers. Perfect.
A full boat will be a very busy boat.
The facilities are good. A large air-conditioned lounge with plenty of comfortable chairs then on the deck outside plenty of sun beds, outdoor seating (garden furniture style with cushions).
Cabins are small. It is a small 21 berth yacht. Cabins can be double with a couch(really useful if you are travelling with hold suitcases, wide enough for two
open suitcases), double no couch, two bunk beds no couch. There is a wardrobe and a key safe.
There are three premium cabins, we had one, cabin 114, the space was handy.
The cabins are air-conditioned, sort of and the portholes don’t open. We found the cabin air-less and stuffy at night.
Small head encompassing toilet (all paper in a bin), basin and shower. Learn to shower when others aren’t, the pressure is higher, the water was hot but don’t expect a pressure shower.
The three top cabins are alongside a deck bar. They are apparently noisey if a party passenger list. Cabins were clean and well presented, comfy beds (we slept on top of the duvet most nights) but nothing dries so towels can be changed daily.
All crew, very international, from the Captain downwards were warm, welcoming, friendly seeking to attend to our every need. Nothing was to much. We had a regular chamber maid, the same ladies serving all meals, a Hotel Manager then an Events Manager besides the crew.
Tea, coffee, water was available throughout the day and all cabins had a mini bar. You paid for drinks from this. We were all provided with our own metal water bottle on arrival for trips out.
A well stocked bar in the lounge but all drinks are extra in euros. Paid for by cash or credit card. Seychelles Rupees or Euros. Drinking glasses of wine with dinner, beers at lunch and other times, soft drinks, we spent 145 euros.
At 7.00pm each evening we all met in the lounge to be briefed by the wonderful and hilarious Events Manager on the following days itinerary. Which island, disembarkation time, what we would be doing, return times, difficulty of walk, time at sea, lunch and dinner arrangements and timings. Most evenings we had a PowerPoint on what we could expect to see the following day.
All disembarkations and returns are either by Pegasos’s own outboard ribs or boats from the island. They can be rough and wet but life jackets are provided and a must every landing and return. Safety and the attention to it including the safety drill and evacuation procedure on Saturday evening were first rate.
Island trips can involve 1, 2, 3 rib transfers which if you are in the last group off an island can be really u comfortable waiting in a sun drenched beach with no shade. Equally take the last rib from the boat, saves waiting on the beach/island for everyone to arrive unless you wish time to explode the beach.
Each day is governed by the weather. All island landings are onto the beach some James Bond style and if the rib/boat cannot either land or leave due to high waves then the trip is either cancelled or tried for another day.
Sailing can be choppy and our trip was ahead of an arriving cyclone in the area so one day was very choppy with some passengers suffering from sea sickness. There is no where to go. No where to get off.
Snorkelling and swimming off the back of the boat when moored at sea were fantastic fun. The yacht provides all fins, snorkels and masks.
All in all we had a fantastic time but for us Saturday to Wednesday was enough. We miss our hotel home comforts, big beds, Amazon rainforest showers, spacious rooms to much.
Many guests were doing the seven days and nothing else having flow in on the Saturday, boarding is at 3.00pm, and flying out the next Saturday, disembarkation is 10.00am. That is a heavy short trip from somewhere like the U.K. ten hour flight. We flew BA who fly Wed/Thu overnight so we had two days in Mahe and are now on Praslin for eight days.
Tipping is essential and the night before leaving we were given guidance. 10-15 euros per day per passenger preferably paid in Euros.
Bring French the boat has French power dockers Adaptors are recommended.
There is WiFi but it costs 30 euros for 1GB. We did not buy it as 4G was pretty constant even when at sea and we just turned it on and off sparingly.
If you love cruising and want to see a lot of the main Seychelles islands quickly, you love flora, fauna, wildlife, paradise islands and beaches, brilliant sunsets and views, it is a fantastic trip and we highly recommend it. However, we are glad we are now on dry land 👍. We cannot thank the Captain and his crew enough for a truely unique and enjoyable experience.
