We found out about this trip at the last minute and managed to get a place at short notice on our last day on the Seychelles. We didn't use their pickup service, preferring to drive ourselves as the dock is easy to find with plenty of parking. Initial impression was that the catamaran was well equipped and felt well looked... More

You start off with a 10 min ride on the catamaran. Then you get on a glass boat where you can absolutely see nothing but the dirt on the windows. Afterwards you go on a snorkling excursion, same as the glass boat; you can't see anything but dead corals and seagrass. The food that they serve you is fine but... More

The dinghy is a tender to the catamaran Anahita, and this tender is licensed to carry 25 pax. For safety reasons we have allocated a maximum of 22 guests and 2 crew. We can assure you that it is very... More

My family and I went on the reef safari day trip and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the trip. The catamaran was really big and there was ample room for the amount of people on the tour, it didn't feel crowded at all. The time in the semi submersible was great and was amazing to see the reef and fish... More

There are 2 main tour operators on Seychelles: Mason's Travel and Creole Travel Services. Mason replied to me first, so I arranged the tour with them. I did by email in April 2016. As It was for New Year’s weekend I started much in advance. It took some time for Mason’s Travel to reply but then it went smoothly, and... More

My husband and I took the Moyenne Island day tour and we loved it. We were picked up from our villa and taken to the port, along with others we picked up. From there we had a lovely boat ride heading towards the island pausing to allow half the group to enjoy an underwater submarine. The rest of us fed... More

We only used Mason's for airport transfer. When we came out of the airport, someone from Mason's was there to help us with our bags. They took us directly to our hotel. The next day, a representative came to share information about excursions with us. We did not take any excursions, but Johnetta was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. They... More

We booked a bike/boat trip to La Digue Island. What we received in service was nothing close to what we paid. My advice to people who want to bike on La Digue is do it yourself. It is easier, more convenient and way less expensive. The most helpful thing that Mason's did for us was pick us up at our... More
