Just metres from the white sand shores of Petite Anse bay, a world of marine discovery awaits you at our Coral Cabana! Located at the main beach entrance, adjacent to the swimming pool and Kannel restaurant, come and explore all that the underwater world of Seychelles has to offer with our marine education and conservation specialists, WiseOceans.
At the Coral Cabana, the team of WiseOceans Marine Educators are always on hand ready to chat about the marine life of Petite Anse bay or, for those with a more adventurous streak, to take you on a wonderful guided snorkel to see what lies beneath the enigmatic surface. The Marine Educators also deliver regular open talks on marine life, and conduct research into the health of the reef to support marine conservation efforts by the Seychelles Government. There are various snorkelling options for you to choose from: whether it is a snorkel lesson for a beginner, a leisurely snorkel tour, or a scientific survey snorkel for those hoping to contribute to coral reef conservation in the Seychelles, the Marine Educators are available daily, ready to tailor your guided snorkelling experience to your requirements.
In 2015, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles and WiseOceans were proud to launch the Petite Anse Reef Restoration Project, which aims to transplant 16,000 coral fragments to a designated one hectare of reef. This is achieved by taking small broken fragments and transferring them to specially designed metal supports that hang in our in-water Coral Nursery before being transplanted to the reef. You may follow the progress of this project on our Reef Restoration Project blog.
WiseOceans is a global marine conservation and education company that employs three core strategies, striving towards a global future with healthier oceans: to educate, to conserve and to involve. With world-class ocean outreach activities and innovative restoration projects, WiseOceans was founded on the belief that education is the way to achieve conservation of our oceans in the long-term. We are proud to be supporting their efforts here in Petite Anse bay and hope you will join the activities of marine discovery during your vacation in Seychelles!
