NORFOLK, VA. — The Navy says the Bainbridge has arrived in Seychelles for a scheduled port visit.

The Norfolk-based guided-missile destroyer arrived in Port Victoria on Monday. It joins the crew of the Carter Hall, an amphibious dock landing ship that arrived in Seychelles on Sunday. Carter Hallís home port is in Virginia Beach.

While in Seychelles, the Navy said sailors will have an opportunity to experience the local culture and assist Nature Seychelles with wetland preservation.

Seychelles is a 115-island country spanning an archipelago in the Indian Ocean east of mainland Africa.

The Bainbridge is on a scheduled seven-month deployment that began in June.
