Madagascar has about 40 referenced dive sites and is always constantly looking for new sites to offer.
Divide the sites into 2 areas:
“Protected” this area is located inside the Sakatia channel.
“Outside” this area is beyond/ just off Sakatia and Nosy Be.
The protected area has the advantage that it offers very easy diving conditions: no current, no waves, and the possibility of mooring.
These dives are dedicated to providing macro and underwater architecture of different trays off Sakatia and Nosy Be.
Coral pinacle, various corals, lots of macro.
Pinnacle tops is from 3 to 8m between sites with maximum depths of 20, 24m.
Beyond Sakatia, the conditions are more dependent on tides and currents and therefore more conducive to pelagics.
Various sites: trays with coral gardens (including many fan corals), small drop-offs, caves, wrecks.
Depths of up to 35- 40 m and heights of 14m trays.
