Diving, Fishing & Watersports
Denis Island Resort enjoys the facility of a small, professional, on-site dive centre with PADI accreditation offering courses for novice and advanced divers alike and where both diving and snorkeling equipment is available. The protected underwater World around Denis ranks as one of the finest areas for diving in Seychelles and features a number of dive sites allowing sightings of turtles, sharks, sting rays, sailfish, tuna and dolphins with whale sharks and manta rays often sighted from September to November.
Experience the thrill of a fishing charter on either our Mako 44′ Striker or 27′ Commodore that operate on request and on a daily basis with experienced crews using state-of-the-art equipment. The local art of bottom-fishing or ‘palangrotte’ is a firm favourite with bone-fishing off the island’s flats also increasing in popularity.
Sailing, windsurfing and canoeing in the sparkling waters surrounding the island are also possible while those with a preference for terrestrial activities will enjoy visits to the farm, hiking the island’s meandering pathways and also our guided nature walks that explore the island’s rich flora and fauna.
