DIVING MADAGASCAR

Madagascar is located just to the east of Africa, off the coast of Mozambique. Also called the Island continent or the Red Island, or again the '8th Continent', it is a land of mystery where the feeling for adventure and discovery is ever-present! For nature lovers, this is THE place to be!

Nicknamed 'The perfume Island', Nosy Be is situated off the north west coast of Madagascar and concentrates most of the cool dive spots around other tiny islands: Nosy Komba, Nosy Tanikely, Nosy Sakatia, Nosy Miitsio and Nosy Iranja. Turtles, manta rays and stingrays are common there. November and December are the high season for whale-sharks, so go and dive around Nosy Tanikely, a little secluded bay with a beach, or by the Four Brothers, a stack of rocks with big drop-offs. We also recommend the dive sites called The Mummy and The Organ. The best time for diving 'Mada', as the Indian Ocean islanders call it, is from April to August, with visibility of up to 30 meters. Though when the visibility drops (10m) it's often because of a plankton bloom... which will attract big predators!
