With ever growing demand from visitors for new experiences while holidaying in Seychelles, Seyscapes yacht charter is the latest option that has become available for those seeking to explore the island destination from the sea.
A venture launched by a couple – Edwin and Tina Adrienne – the charter company owns a Gib’sea 472 Yacht baptized ‘Tina,’ which is fully equipped to offer sailing trips around the Seychelles islands. The couple completed all the necessary formalities and was ready to start their charter business in July this year.
Seychelles is a 115-island archipelago surrounded by a vast ocean, providing homes to an abundant marine life. Operating under the slogan ‘Escape to Eden’ the Seyscapes yacht charter offers a close encounter with the island destination’s marine biodiversity.
Welcoming both visitors and locals onboard, ‘Tina’ offers a range of experiences from sunset and overnight cruises and day trips around the inner islands, including visits to the marine parks. Personalized charters, weeklong or two week sails, celebration trips out at sea for special occasions, including romantic cruises are also available.
Edwin, a Seychellois national and his wife Tina, who is a British national have been married for the past 26 years and they both have years of sailing experience and qualifications. In fact, the adventurous couple sailed their Gib’sea 472 yacht from Southampton, on England’s South coast to the Seychelles port of Victoria, which was a five –and-a-half month voyage.
The couple who has lived abroad for almost two decades, describe coming back to Seychelles to launch into the yacht charter business as a hobby that has now turned into a dream come true.
“This was a dream in the making for my wife and I who have been living abroad for 18 whole years. Being that we both have a good background in hotel management along with excellent catering skills and love for the sea, we said why not turn our hobby into a job, and so we did,” said Mr Adrienne.
Their 47-foot monohull yacht, refurbished in 2016, can sleep six passengers and is fully equipped to accommodate guests overnight in its two rear double cabins and one twin bunk cabin mid-ship. The yacht also has two other cabins for the skipper and crew.
Equipped for the ultimate cruise experience, Tina comes with an entertainment system, auto-piloting features, barbeque equipment, snorkeling gears, and a GPS system among other features.
The owners of the Seyscapes yacht charter said their aim is to work with every booking to ensure that their expectations are met and offer the best possible experience to individuals and families and groups of friends seeking to have a relaxing time while exploring the uniqueness and beauty of the Seychelles islands.
