Dive sites vary in depth from 8 to 30 metres and provide conditions for divers of
all abilities. Morning dives are generally deeper dives, while afternoon dives tend
to be shallower. The inshore dives provide sheltered conditions on both granitic
and coral reefs; while the coral structures were affected by the 1998 bleaching event
the marine the fish and marine life are abundant.
The offshore or long-range dive sites of the inner islands offer some of the very
best diving in Seychelles and are suitable for more experienced divers as these sites
tend to be deeper and may have current conditions. These conditions tend to attract
the larger marine life found around Seychelles with the chance for divers to encounter
whale sharks and giant stingrays.
