The Seychelles Ocean festival is a week-long happening that looks to involve all the elements which make Seychelles an amazing destination for the ultimate marine experience.

Whereas SUBIOS, which started in 1990, largely focused on raising the profile of the archipelago as a diving destination through its famous underwater video and film competitions, film shows and talks by famous, internationally renowned personalities, the Seychelles Ocean Festival looks to broaden the event’s appeal by involving all marine sectors.

This newest addition to Seychelles’ calendar of events will continue to popularize Seychelles as a diving destination via the popular photography competition and by working with the dive centres, airlines and accommodation establishments to offer appealing dive packages to tourists during the period of the festival.

The Seychelles Ocean Festival will involve a special gala dinner and film show, showcasing various aspects of the blue economy, highlighting the attributes of Seychelles’ sailing and fishing sectors through a coordinated programme of related activities and bringing hotels on board to promote special sea-food evenings, film shows and other forms of entertainment around a marine theme.

Schools and NGOs will be encouraged to participate, especially at a family day at Anse Royale when a host of activities is planned including exhibitions, live music shows, sporting events (Iron Man & Woman), volleyball/football competitions and other cultural happenings.

The intention is for the Seychelles Ocean Festival to broaden the appeal of SUBIOS by reflecting the wider choice of marine activities which, together, make Seychelles an exciting destination to visit.
