Do I need a visa to travel to the Seychelles?
You do not need a visa as long as you arrive with a valid passport and get the visitor permit upon arrival in the Seychelles.
Is tipping customary in the Seychelles?
Tipping in the Seychelles is not an expectation or an obligation, and some places don't even accept tips. That being said, if you do experience phenomenal service, then you can leave a 10% tip. In general, the places where tipping is expected will already include a service charge as part of your bill.
What is internet access like in the Seychelles?
The Seychelles are a destination to be enjoyed without an internet connection. While you might be able to find a hotspot at a nicer hotel or café in town, most of our tour will not offer internet access.
Can I use my cell phone while in the Seychelles?
Don't count on using your cell phone in the Seychelles Islands. You will be too geographically isolated from the towers where you can get a signal. There are local towers, but it is easiest just to turn off the phone and enjoy paradise!
Do I need power adapters?
The Seychelles have 220-240v electricity with British style B-1363 outlets, which will require both an adapter and in the case of appliances that can't handle 220v, a step down converter or transformer.
What are the toilets like in the Seychelles?
Since our ships (and hotel) in the Seychelles are among the most luxurious, you can count on comfortable western style bowl toilets. Toilet paper should be thrown in the garbage rather than in the bowl.
Can I drink the water in the Seychelles?
Do not drink the water in the Seychelles. Rather, it is safe to drink the filtered or bottled water provided by your cruise vessel or hotel.
Are credit cards accepted in the Seychelles? Will I be able to find ATMs?
You might find a restaurant or hotel that accepts cards in the Seychelles, but ATMs aren't very common and they can be hard to find. Go with enough cash for souvenirs and tips, but the rest of the expenses are taken care of with the price of the tour.
