    Hi All,

    I leave for Seychelles in the next 4 weeks for 10 days?

    anyone know more about what currency is better to hold in Seychelles at this moment in time?
    EUR or USD?
    i hear on the black market you get nearly twice as much local currency for your dollar/euro

    anyone done some diving there?

    Looking for the travel advice i can get!

    Thanks!!

    better to use euro as it is a bit stronger than the dollar IMO

    Where you going and staying?

    Obviously the further out you get from Mahe the better.

    I don't know if you still get as a great deal off the black market since they floated their currency. Maybe just take Rupees.

    thanks guys

    haha.... we struck it lucky.
    its a friend of mines bachelors... his ole man has gifted us 10 days on a 10 sleeper Catamaran! - "i'm on a boat! i'm on a boat! take a good hard look at the mmffff boat!"
    we just have to pay to get ourselves over there, and living expenses etc.
    sooo i guess we'lll be cruising from island to island?

    hows the deep sea fishing there this time? as far as i know the boat can put 2 lines out the back

    Oh nice....you will likely be leaving from Eden island then.If you go to Praslin try to visit the clam farm....it's awesome.

    Fishing is fishing.......maybe a sailie maybe nudda. Will get better if you go to the dropoff.
