Dive and Explore Radama & Mitsio Gorgeous Archipelagos!

Why We Love It

Embark on a small-group cruise to Madagascar's most pristine islands: the Radama archipelago and the Mitsio islands. Explore virgin islands and preserved sites amid schools of barracuda, trevallies, whitetip sharks, and even the occasional hammerhead shark at the Radama Archipelago! The Mitsio Islands are ideal for spotting large schools of fish, as well as manta rays and whale sharks in season. Humpback whales migrate between June and September. We love this affordable liveaboard trip during which you'll disconnect from civilization!


Established in Nosy Be in 1990, the dive shop regularly hosts the NGO Plongeurs du Monde, which teaches locals to become professional divers. The dive center also organizes beach and dive site clean-ups and hosts several times a year some scientists who collect marine samples used in cancer research.

Who Is It For?

For divers wishing to discover an authentic Madagascar, far from mass tourism. The destination will also please non-divers who can snorkel, and explore islands.

Dive Briefing!

Marine Life

  • From June to the end of September, humpback whales arrive for the mating season. You can observe jumps, fin strikes, or even training out of the water!
  • Every year, between mid-October and mid-December, whale sharks migrate, and you can observe them snorkelling. There are also more mantas, both species being attracted by the plankton in the water, which also brings lower underwater visibility.
  • The rich waters of the Mozambique Channel bring manta rays, mobula, eagle, and guitar rays; some hammerhead sharks (in December), and some leopard, grey, and white tip sharks all year round. Additionally, you might see magnificent sailfish, and schools of marlins, tuna, and more!
  • All year round, you can dive with huge schools of fusiliers, surgeons, batfish, trevallies, barracudas, green and hawksbill turtles, wrasse, and humphead parrotfish, to name a few.
  • The macro is beautiful too, with ghost and leaf fish, seahorses, and more.
