When To Go Dive at Praslin and La Digue

The best time for a Praslin and La Digue liveaboard cruise depends on your preferences and what you want to see and experience. Generally, Seychelles has a tropical climate with warm temperatures throughout the year, but there are two distinct seasons: the northwest monsoon season from November to March and the southeast trade wind season from May to September.
The best time for diving in Praslin and La Digue is during the southeast trade wind season, from May to September. During this time, the waters are generally calmer, with better visibility and conditions for diving. This season also coincides with the peak season for whale sharks and manta rays, which are often spotted during dives.
If you prefer to avoid the crowds and get a better deal on a liveaboard cruise, the shoulder seasons of April and October are also good options. However, the weather and diving conditions may be less predictable during these times.
It is worth noting that the northwest monsoon season, from November to March, can be wetter with higher humidity and occasional storms, which may affect diving conditions. However, some divers still choose to dive during this season, as it can be a good time to spot larger marine species, such as sharks and rays.
Ultimately, the best time for a Praslin and La Digue liveaboard cruise depends on your priorities and what you want to see and experience. It is recommended to check the weather and diving conditions before booking to ensure the best possible experience
