fly into Antananarivo the capital of Madagascar
from Johannesburg. Depending on flights, transfer
to domestic departures for a 90 minute flight
to Nosy Be Airport. You are met and transferred
to Chanty Beach where a boat transfers you to
the smaller island of Nosy Sakatia approx one
mile across the channel. Your host, Jose, is an
ex South African with many hours of diving under
his weight belt to share with you. It is left
to you to discuss with your host the dives you
wish to enjoy and when you wish to dive the various
sites available. Returning to Tana to connect
with you flight to Johannesburg.
Lodge is situated on the south east side of Nosy
Sakatia in a protected bay at the base of a tropical
sacred mountain, the lodge has a sea facing lounge,
fully licensed bar, restaurant and caters only
to a maximum of 20 guests in bungalows with a
specialised Dive centre, so you are assured of
individual attention and no overcrowded dive trips.
numerous dive sites around Sakatia vary in depth
from six to fifty meters, consisting of walls,
drops, coral reefs, and pinnacles. During boat
rides, encounters with dolphins and whales are
not uncommon, and dives with manta rays and whale
sharks are all in a good days diving. The three
house reefs five minutes away from the centre
not only offer great afternoon dives but also
are ideal spots for extremely safe night dives.
The small paradise island is a place where dreams
are made - no roads only foot paths.
