Group size: Minimum 2, Maximum 8
The Yachts: 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 depending on the chosen vessel. Please enquire for larger group sizes. Each yacht offers double cabins (most with en-suite facilities, some with additional bathrooms), the main saloon with comfortable seating and ample seating on the deck. Our chefs prepare a variety of meals including prawns, calamari, fish, beef and pasta, with an abundance of salads and fresh fruit. All of the yachts are skippered by a fully qualified French-speaking, Malagasy skipper. English crew can be provided at an additional cost.
Scuba Diving: Some of the 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 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).
Fishing: 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.
Visas: A visa is required to enter the territory of Madagascar and can easily be obtained upon arrival at the airport of Antananarivo with a validity of up to 90 days. Tourists staying for less than one month, can purchase a visa for 115’000 Ariary (around 35 €). Paying with the exact amounts or small currency is advised. No photographs are required, however please ensure that passports are valid for at least 6 months after return date.
