When one says, “Winter vacation,” we are used to imagine snow-capped mountains, skiing, Christmas markets, etc. Instead, we offer you an excellent alternative – winter yachting on the Indian Ocean.
You can break free from your routine for a few weeks, return your summer in winter, and master some new sea routes on a yacht or a catamaran. In short, if you love the sun and the sea, vacation on a boat is just what you need. The warm Indian Ocean is perfect for this.
The Seychelles and Maldives archipelagos are located in the Indian Ocean in tropical latitudes. The climate in winter here is warmer than in mid-latitudes in summer. These tropical islands are scattered across vast archipelagos, ensuring your relax at one with nature during a holiday. So let’s take a closer look at them.
Seychelles is an exotic archipelago in the Indian Ocean located to the north of the island of Madagascar. Here you can make your dream come true – a trip under the white sail in the warm sea in winter. There is no large fleet of yachts here, but the number of tourists is much less than that in Thailand or Egypt, you can feel real privacy here. As for the prices for boat rental, they are about the middle level, compared with other regions of this climatic zone. The cost of air travel will be higher, due to the remoteness of this region. Clean and clear water, wonderful sea air, tropical fish, and corals … All this attracts divers and winter beach holiday lovers here. You can find a really unique thing here – colossal sea turtles that may even be more than 100 years old! Besides, this archipelago is a homeplace to many parks and nature reserves, not to mention thousands of beaches, where you can admire the tropical nature in private. You definitely must come here in winter!
- The Maldives. The Maldives archipelago is located in the northern Indian Ocean not far from the Indian coast; it consists of about 1200 large and small atolls. Most of them are uninhabited; you can find a real untouched nature here. In fact, they look even better than in advertising brochures … This is a real dream for any person, a tropical paradise. The only way to get here is by private transport such as a yacht. You will be able to visit these paradise sites one by one without any problems, diving, snorkeling, fishing, swimming, and sunbathing. It is also a very popular holiday destination for tourists who love a beach relax in winter. The richest underwater fauna of the Indian Ocean also attracts lots of divers to the Maldives. Although, the infrastructure for yachting tourism here is less developed than in Seychelles, and those available are usually rented with a captain. That is, if you are a skipper with a license and you yourself want to sail the boat during the cruise, there are not so many options to choose from, but still, there are some. Large motor yachts for 15-25 people, mainly for divers are the most popular here. All the staff will be on board at this yacht: hostess, captain, and, if necessary, diving instructors and cooks.
