We have done the BVIs a couple times on bareboat PCs (I think a 393PC the first time and then a 514PC the second). We love it. Thinking about another trip and researching the Seychelles. Has anyone out there done both that can give me a comparison? Cruising time between islands, snorkeling, bay comparisons?
We just got back from spending a few weeks in Kenya visiting Nick and Monica and really looking into a possible visit to Seychelles when we return again next year..did a safari this trip which was amazing but always looking for different things.
A couple from .switzerland on our safari told us that Seychelles was incredible.
I've chartered BVI once (again next month), Whitsundays, Bay of Islands, and now Seychelles is on my short list. I would love to make it an equator crossing if at all possible and want to cruise the Amirante Bank. These may likely require a Captain. Looked into it a lot and just need to carve out dates 2021 is probably first opportunity. From what I read July is a pretty favorable month.

Great information. Thank you. We love the protected bays, the snorkeling and deserted beaches. We are not so into the open water.... We are thinking of a April 2020 trip. What was the other tome you have been?
