Madagascar’s largest offshore island is also home to some of its most stunning beaches. Underneath the pristine waters lies a world of untouched coral reefs just waiting to be explored. The best way for clients to submerge themselves amongst the tropical fish and colourful reefs is on a Nosy Be Dive & Nature Discovery Package, which includes 8 dives over 4 days. The rest of the days are for exploring the nature on land and relaxing. This package is a great add on to the Madagascar North Adventure tour.
The tropical waters of Nosy Be remain largely undiscovered to the rest of the world, ensuring a pristine coral environment with a full range of colourful reef fish and large schools of snappers, barracuda, unicorn fish, etc. But there’s even more, keep an eye out as well for turtles, dolphins, manta rays and whale sharks which can be found year round. During September and November Humpback whales visit the area. It’s an absolute underwater paradise, rich in biodiversity and far away from large crowds, allowing for some excellent exploratory dives.
Besides reef diving, you can also visit some wrecks, a canyon, or even try night time fluoro diving at Sakatia. This is a completely unique experience where divers take along a special light and wear a special mask to see the sea creatures shine brightly with neon colours, almost resembling an underground rave but without the loud repetitive music. Instead surrounded by the peace and tranquility of the calm ocean. Truly an experience like no other!
Don’t miss the opportunity to dive in one of the world’s last untouched regions. Whether you are a novice or have been diving for years, you will discover a new world that will keep calling you back for more…
Tips for diving in Nosy Be: Visibility is 15-30 metres depending on the season. The water remains a comfortable 26°C and above so you won’t need a wetsuit thicker than 3mm. Diving instructors speak most travellers’ languages. Most dives take place in the morning. Explore to your heart’s content!
