When To Go Dive at Mahe

The best time to go liveaboard diving in Mahe, Seychelles is during the dry season, which runs from May to September. During this time, the weather is generally dry, with lower humidity and less rainfall, making for calmer seas and better visibility for diving. The water temperature during this season ranges from 26-29°C (79-84°F), providing comfortable diving conditions. Additionally, the southeast trade winds blow during this time, creating optimal diving conditions for the waters around Mahe.

However, diving is possible year-round in Mahe, with the rainy season (October to April) offering the chance to see large pelagic species, such as whale sharks and manta rays. The water temperature during this season is around 27-30°C (81-86°F), and although the visibility may be reduced, the underwater experience can still be enjoyable.

It's worth noting that the months of December and January are peak tourist seasons in Seychelles, so liveaboard availability may be limited, and prices may be higher during this time. Therefore, it is recommended to plan and book well in advance to ensure availability and the best possible diving experience
