View Full Version : Mahe - Victoria Harbour (Port of entry)

24th April 2009, 05:53 PM
Checking into the Seychelles is required in Mahe, so the first port of call is Victoria Harbour, the capital and main centre of the island. Arrival formalities are easy. In the inner harbour there are moorings but all belong to yacht club members. Quite a few local boats do charter work and can be gone for a few days at a time, so some cruisers use the moorings by arrangement.

Yachts must contact the Port Victoria Harbour Master at least 2 hours in advance on VHF channel 16 - he will direct you to the anchorage.

There are a number of boatyards and slips at Port Victoria.
