Due to the size of the island, Madagascar boasts a plethora of different landscapes making it the perfect destination for adventurous divers. There's great diving to be had around the islands and islets surrounding Nosy Be on the north and west coasts.

Head down to the south of the island around Ifaty; this area is preserved for coral protection and boasts impressive coral formations that will amaze and seduce even the most experienced divers.

When to dive in Madagascar

Every year, 10% of the world's population of humpback whales migrate to Madagascar's waters. From June-September, the whales come from the Antarctic to breed in Madagascar's warmer waters. During this time, they provide viewers with a magnificent mating display.

By August females have given birth; mothers can sometimes be seen swimming with their calves.
