OCTOBER - SEYCHELLES Astove Atoll

 

Seychelles - Astove is breathtakingly beautiful 

It is a world filled with colour, where the daily dramas of a pristine ecosystem play out in front of your very eyes. Astove offers a rare privilege opportunity to gaze into a world which has changed very little in the years that have passed. The Astove Wall is described as gazing down into the Grand Canyon. It consists of the large flats and reef dropping a vertical 90 degrees, from ankle deep water to water over a kilometre deep. This unique feature makes it a perfect dive site.

 

Astove Atoll is the place for catching the largest flats-caught Giant Trevallies in the Indian Ocean as well as many other species. Its shallow lagoon, surrounded by sheer drop-offs, makes the experience unique. This lagoon is a sanctuary for both juvenile and trophy size fish that feed on the shallow white sand flats. Aside from big GT’s, Astove offers innumerable opportunities for bonefish, permit, bluefin trevally, triggerfish, barracuda and milkfish. The offshore fishing starts metres from the edge of the flat where anglers can test their skills against yellowfin tuna, dogtooth tuna, wahoo and sailfish.
