Best time for sailing trip in Seychelles
The climate is predominantly sub-equatorial with two main seasons. December to May in the Seychelles is hot with average temperature reaching +29°C, while from June to November it is much cooler with the average temperature around 24°C.
Dry season lasts from May to October when the southeast trade winds (Southeast Monsoon) bring a relatively dry air. July-August is a peak season with little precipitation and temperatures around 27°C. During this period seas can be a little choppy.
By November, winds start to change, bringing light, warmer air and indicating the start of the rainy season. From December to March with Northwest Monsoon, Seychelles gets extremely wet, especially in January. Though during this time the vegetation is lush, the winds are mostly light and the sun is warmest. This is also the cyclone season, though only the most remote southern islands are within the cyclone belt.
The best time for diving is spring from March to May and autumn from September to November. From May to October is a great time for windsurfing and sailing in Seychelles, but you may enjoy cruising on the islands almost all year round.
The mixture of Indian, Southeast Asian, British and French influences reflects itself in the blender of international and Creole cuisine - fresh seafood, fruits and local spices. Octopus is frequently seen on the menu and is very good in all forms (in salads or coconut curries); red snapper is a favorite grilled dish and the adventurous ones may try a fruit bat curry.
There is no other way to truly enjoy this piece of haven, but to hop from one island to the next on a sailing boat, anchoring at snorkeling or other spots of your desire. Beaches with rough currents will be signposted, so watch for the warning. Many Marine National Parks invite you to whale- shark sightings and turtle nesting sites, as well as to explore rich underwater coral reefs with abundance of incredible sea life. This country with astonishing beaches and tropical waters is one big playground for diving, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking and etc. And sailing will be the ultimate way to indulge the essence of this part of the world.
