This is a very professionally run dive centre!
We had two dives here.
Natalie was our dive master and took excellent care of us!
I am still a novice diver and she helped me so much. Thanks for your patience and professionalism Natalie!
We had excellent dives - saw the Madagascar Anemone fish, other beautiful tropical fish, beautiful coral, large school of Golden King Fish that circled us, Green turtle, Brown Turtle, Nudibranch, Blue spotted Stingray and much more!
Stunning!

Thank MMMOSL

We had a great time with Natalie and Alain from Sakalav Diving during our vacation in Madagascar. They are very organised and have employees that will help you with the diving equipment. We dived only 5 times ...because we stayed only for a week in Nosy Be.

We were very happy to meet them and they made our vacation by helping us with everything we wanted ( PADI certification, accommodation, transport, restaurants, animal seeing, motor bike and places to visit).

They really helped us a lot in the fist stage of panning our vacation by being responsive at our emails and giving us precise information about transport and accommodation. This is a challenge in Madagascar if you travel without a guide or travel agency like we did.

We recomand Sakalav Diving not only for diving and marine animal seeing also for a friendly environment and useful turist information.

Thank you again for all!
