How to get there

Arrival

  • Guests are expected to arrive in Mahe (the main island of the Seychelles) the day before their trip. Any delay on the day of departure will certainly cause the trip to be missed. 
  • From Mahe, you will take a 3 hour flight to Astove Atoll. 
  • The group meets 1 hour before the scheduled departure time to Astove Atoll at the IDC Hanger (Pointe Larue, Mahe). 
  • Scheduled flights depart and return to Mahe each Thursday and select Mondays. 
  • Our team will assist you with flight reservations between Mahe and Astove, immediately following your booking. 

Departure

  • It is important that your international flight leaves a day later than your planned arrival in Mahe. Any flights booked on the same day may be missed due to possible delays.
