expeditions as they are listed at the Underwater Centre Seychelles website.

For updated information e-mail .
This informative site mentions, “These islands are on the edge of the cyclone 
belt and have been subject to infrequent cyclone passage which occur mainly in 
January. Accessibility is thus limited to Mid October to Mid December and then 
again in March to the end of April. “  So avoid Aldabra in January!!

can take you to the Islands between November 19 and December 4, 2003.
