You fly into Antananarivo the capital of Madagascar from Nairobi. 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 Nairobi.
Sakatia 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.
The 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.
