WiseOceans Marine Discovery Programme
at MAIA Luxury Resort and Spa, Seychelles
MAIA Luxury Resort and Spa, sits on a private peninsula on Mahé, Seychelles – the oldest islands in the world. The house reef at Anse Louis is right in front of the resort where a rich array of marine life awaits. Swim among schools of colourful reef fish, curious turtles and rays, set against the dramatic granite underwater landscape and beautiful corals.
Our Marine Discovery Programme allows guests from the resort to understand and learn about Seychelles’ incredible underwater world, leaving with not just with wonderful memories but with an awareness and passion for the ocean, the marine life within it and how we can help protect it.
Discover the marine life of Seychelles on a WiseOceans guided snorkel
Anse Louis is a beautiful beach, hidden away on the south-west coast of Mahé – Seychelles’ main island and our Marine Discovery Programme based there is staffed every Wednesday. It offers wonderful snorkelling on its shallow reef – perfect for both beginners and experts alike. We run a Pop-up Marine Discovery Programme at MAIA where our Marine Educators visit at least once a week connecting with the guests and delivering our outstanding WiseOceans activities and experiences.
Typical sightings on snorkels include angelfish, parrotfish, Moorish idols, butterflyfish, geometric moray eels, cerulean damselfish, scissortail sergeants and if you are lucky you might even spot a nesting turtle on the beach! The reef is a particular hot spot for juvenile reef fish. Snorkelling with our Marine Educator means you will be sure to spot the best of the marine life on the reef. Out of the water we can offer bespoke marine education talks and kids activities – whatever you want, wherever you want, whenever you want.
