Experience highlights of Mahé during a satisfying coach and catamaran tour of a picturesque plantation, a rain forest and the island's pristine coastline. Journey to breathtaking Jardin du Roi, a postcard-ready, 85-acre working plantation situated high in the rainforest valley of southern Mahé. You'll discover that the plantation is home to a wide variety of spice plants, tropical fruit trees, essential oil plants and endemic palms, and that descendants of the founding Green family still manage the plantation, which was established in 1860.
After a delightful pick-me-up of refreshing fruit juice at Jardin du Roi, continue your excursion on a comfortable catamaran. You'll revel in cooling soft drinks and water as you sail toward Victoria, accompanied by the mellow sounds of a talented guitarist. Stop along southwest Mahé's unspoiled coastline for swimming, snorkeling or simply relaxing aboard the spacious boat. You'll find knowledgeable crew on hand to provide lightweight flotation vests that allow even the novice snorkeler to participate in this memorable experience, the perfect coda to your beguiling Mahé sojourn.
