NOSY BE, Madagascar [TOUR ENDS]
During breakfast, we make our way back to Nosy Be island, where you will be transferred to

Pre and Post Tour Arrangements
Pre and post tour accommodation and transfers can be arranged on request.
We have a varied selection of yachts available for charter, from 36 ft. to 50 ft., accommodating a minimum of 2 people up to 8 people (dependent on the yacht chosen). Please enquire for larger group sizes. Each yacht offers double cabins (most with en-suite facilities, some with additional bathrooms), a main saloon with comfortable seating and ample seating on deck. Our chefs prepare a variety of meals including prawns, calamari, fish, beef and pastas, with an abundance of salads and fresh fruit. All our yachts are skippered by a fully qualified Madagascan skipper.
Some of our yachts have scuba diving equipment on board. If you plan on diving during your charter, please advise this to us at the start of your enquiry, so that we can suggest and quote on the most appropriate yacht to your needs and party size.
*Please note that no dive master is on board, and therefore you may only dive if you produce a valid certification, and have dived within the past year. Alternatively, with prior notice we can arrange the hire of a dive master to accompany you on your dive (additional fee).
Please advise during your enquiry if you wish to fish, so that we may choose the most appropriate yacht for your needs and your group size. All our yachts are equipped with basic fishing equipment, and on request we can add more specialised equipment. We ask that you please bring your own lures, as these are largely unavailable in Madagascar.
When arriving in Nosy Be on day 1 of the tour you will be picked up from the airport and will proceed with your tour. Should you arrive prior to day 1, or require accommodation in Antananarivo or Nosy Be, we can arrange pre tour accommodation for you if required, and the itinerary can be amended accordingly.

Information on Areas Visited
Madagascar is an island nation in the Indian Ocean, off the eastern coast of Africa. Madagascar is the 4th largest island in the world. It is the home of five percent of the world's plant and animal species, 80 per cent of them unique to Madagascar. Most famous among those are the lemurs. Its teeming fertile forests and geographical isolation have served to preserve and propagate 'nature's design laboratory' in a mix found nowhere else on earth. Madagascar's forests are a shimmering, seething mass of a trillion stems and dripping leaves.
Nosy Tanikely Marine Reserve
Nosy Tanikely (Little Land Island) is 10km west of Nosy Komba, an island south-east of Nosy
Be. It is a protected marine reserve and therefore one of the better sites for diving and
snorkeling. Expect stunning hard and soft corals, lobsters, eels, reef fish and occasional
turtles. Other attractions include beaches, tide pools and a variety of tropical bird species.
Nosy Komba (Island of lemurs) is a small volcanic island lying midway between Nosy Be and
the mainland of Madagascar. The island offers several walking trails, and an excellent
opportunity to observe lemur behavior, from the semi-tame black lemurs (small fee to clients,
own cost). Visit local inland villages or head to the island's neighbouring islets for great
snorkeling and swimming.
Beautiful Nosy Iranja (Island of Turtles) lies south west of Nosy Be, just beyond the entrance to
Russian Bay. Nosy Iranja is made up of two islands, the larger and inhabited Nosy Iranja Be
(covering about 200 hectares), and the smaller Nosy Iranja Kely (13 hectares). The islands are
connected by a 2.5km long sand bank which can be crossed at low tide to visit either of the
islands. The pristine white beaches and clear turquoise water make for an excellent place to
relax and enjoy fabulous snorkeling. Our crew can take you on a guided walk through the
small village up the hill to the old decommissioned lighthouse – designed by Gustav Eiffel& almst 100 years old. There are some stunning panoramic views from the top of the hill, where
the old lighthouse keepers' house has been converted into a school.
Also known as Ambavatory Bay, this is a beautiful and remote place opposite the Nosy Be
archipelago. Enjoy the fantastic marine life for snorkeling and fishing and maybe you might
spot a whale (in season – from October to December) or a rare Whale shark. The tropical
woods harbour abundant birdlife, reptiles and lemurs, and dolphins and turtles are often a
common sight in the morning.
Lokobe Nature Reserve
This is the last remaining lowland rainforest on the island and is famed for its black lemur and
beautiful nosy be panther chameleon. There is a wonderful beach, and further inland, some
fresh water pools in the forest to explore.
Sakatia Island is a tropical paradise. Situated near Nosy Be off the North Western coast of
Madagascar, Sakatia is a true breakaway with no roads or motor vehicles, and only lots of
foot paths, with which one can wander at leisure and explore the beauty of the island. It
offers typically unspoilt tropical fauna and flora and has a population of only 300. The island
is fringed by spectacular coral reefs to be enjoyed by the snorkeller or scuba diver alike.
Only accessible by boat, the Nosy Mitsio Archipelago lies 70km north of Nosy Be. La Grand
Mitsio is the largest of the 12 islands, and contains small farming villages. Nosy Ankarea is
surrounded by coral reefs whilst Les Quatre Freres consists of four imposing silver basalt rocks,
covered by hundreds of nesting seabirds. You are likely to encounter Manta rays in these
waters. These islands are wild and unpredictable, and are seen as the crème de la crème for
dedicated divers who wish to explore the numerous and varied sites. Both hard and soft
corals are in good condition and the waters support a large diversity of reef fish. Moray Eels
peek out from their crevices and large pelagics such as barracuda, kingfish and tuna are
Kalakajoro (part of the Radama's)
Located 90km south west of Nosy Be, the Radama Archipelago consists of four islands, of
which Kalakajoro is the most northern and the smallest. Here you will find deserted beaches,
fish eagles, beautiful coral beds, and spectacular fishing. Just 3km off the beach you will find
a continental drop off with abundant Tuna, Barracuda, Sailfish, and Giant Kingfish.
