The islands of the Nosy Be Archipelago are famous for their white sand beaches, coral-filled waters, and unique floral and fauna.
From July to October, it is possible to see humpback whales and swim with whale sharks (until the end of December).
Plankton prefers the cool waters of the southern winter (June to September) which attracts megafauna that feeds on them and other fish such as whale sharks, manta rays, as well as turtles, and dolphins.
Scuba diving trips in Madagascar take place mainly in the Nosy Be Archipelago where the best locations are found (Tanikely, Nosy Sakatia, Nosy Iranja, Radama, and Mitsio).
Some other magnificent diving spots are in the south of Madagascar, in the region of Tulear, and Fort Dauphin.
