What to see in the Indian Ocean

The Indian ocean is a destination that rewards your curiosity and effort to travel to these distant lands. With infrastructure such as a yacht charter to assist you in your exploration of the Indian Ocean, going on an adventure has never been so comfortable. Beautiful beaches, tropical climates, stunning scenery, fascinating flora and fauna on isolated islands from Mayotte to the Maldives are the core attractions that lure visitors to sail its translucid waters. The entire Indian Ocean has a diverse, rich marine growth and a plethora of unusual and colorful fish that populates it: green sea turtles, clown fishes, or even barracudas. Some species are unique to the Indian Ocean or even endemic to some islands such as the Mauritius Dragonet or the Killifish in Seychelles. 

The components of a fascinating adventure in the Indian Ocean: the white sand of Seychelles beaches, snorkeling on a Maldives island or sail around Mauritius, are only accessible by boat. A yacht charter is, therefore, the best way to discover its islands and travel from one to another easily.

These fascinating destinations are only a few additional hours on a plane away. You will then reach your boat charter and start sailing the Indian Ocean for an adventure that you are not ready to forget.

The Indian Ocean offers a broad range of intriguing experiences that will enrich your life forever. Exploring paradise is not limited to taking in the sun on a beautiful beach: all your senses will be involved. These remote lands also have rich and unique cultures for you to discover.

Yachting trips in the Indian Ocean 

It is essential to plan ahead of time a yachting vacation in the Indian Ocean. Although there is a wide choice of charter boats available, you want to book the best boat available. If your heart is set on a unique itinerary, the individually owned yachts that can accommodate you should be booked far in advance, especially during the holidays. The most popular boats for this region are by far the catamarans. Catamarans are particularly well suited for cruising these waters. Some other options do exist, such as usual motored yachts or traditional sailboats, depending on your destination.

One-way itineraries can bring your exploration of these distant lands to even more remote corners. For the adventure, be sure to consider the smaller crewed yachts that offer itineraries that are quite ambitious and truly unique. It's important to consider the trade winds and monsoon factors when planning your itinerary in the Indian Ocean. Weigh the different options for the itinerary ahead of time, as the effort can make for a memorable trip.

The Indian Ocean's Weather

Specific weather periods in this region create challenging sailing conditions. Having a local skipper on board will ensure that your charter experience will be more carefree. A local skipper will know how to find isolated islands, the most spectacular beaches, and the best restaurants and markets of your destinations. If you are planning on long-distance sails to remote areas, a crew may be required. Take extra care with your provisioning list, especially for remote itineraries like Madagascar or the Amirante Islands.

Prepare to travel light as there is no spare room on a yacht. Bring your necessities in soft luggage so that all may be stowed easily on the yacht. As you may encounter different cultures, it is a good idea to be prepared to dress modestly when in town. Skimpy clothing is best reserved for the beaches and when onboard your boat.
