Snorkelling is a highlight for visitors to coastal parts of Madagascar
Madagascar's reefs offer great snorkelling opportunities
Nowhere are the reefs more vibrant and brimming with marine life than in the north-western region around Nosy Be archipelago. For the most part, guests are taken by boat - be it speedboat or traditional dugout ('lakana') to choice snorkelling spots and there, its possible to spend hours immersed in the kaleidoscope of life on the coral reef formations.
Most guests staying at Eden Lodge on remote Baobab Beach (on the northwest coast opposite Nosy Be), encounter endearing Green turtles while swimming off the pretty beach. The best scuba diving centre is that at Sakatia Lodge, on the island of Nosy Sakatia. Dive master Jacques Vieira won't only take you on world class diving jaunts, but the lodge arranges wonderful snorkelling excursions for its guests. At certain times of the year, they also partner with a local organisation which arranges responsibly conducted trips to swim with magnificent and gigantic Whale-sharks, an unforgettable experience!
We'll arrange great snorkelling breaks for you
