Poivre Atoll Seychelles (Liveaboard) lies just short of 300km south of Mahé on the Eastern edge of the Amirantes Bank. The atoll is made up of two smaller islands, Poivre and Île du Sud. Separated by a shallow lagoon that extends all the way back to Ile du Sud during high tide, this destination offers both stunning flats as well as one of the best game fishing areas on the planet.
The Amirantes Trench is a unique draw-care at Poivre Atoll Seychelles. The sheer drop-off, which steps from 60 to 12000 meters in a matter of kilometres, lends itself to rich currents and an abundance of various fish species.
