The Seychelles Ocean Festival will take place from 2nd - 9th December 2016.
The new Seychelles Ocean Festival (SOF) stands on the shoulders of its predecessor SUBIOS and its achievements over a period of two decades while at the same time attempting to broaden its appeal and involve other emerging sectors of Seychelles’ marine scene such as sailing, cruising and sports-fishing which are all steadily evolving to become mainstream tourist activities and major destination attractions.
The new Festival, which will kick off with a launch at Eden Island on Friday 2nd followed by a paid gala dinner at Eden Bleu the next day, will also include public events such as a family fun day on Sunday 4th December featuring a number of sporting activities. There will also be dedicated film screenings at Deepams Cinema as well as exhibitions and special festival activities hosted at various hotels and dive centres throughout festival week.
Please visit the Seychelles Ocean Festival website for more details and entry forms.
