Madagascar rises off the Eastern African coast, facing Mozambique and the Indian Ocean. The main island, Grande-Terre, is the fourth biggest island in the world. Protected from the trade winds from the northwest and washed by the warm waters of the Mozambique Channel, is Nosy Be, one of the most attractive destinations for spearfishing!
Nosy Be, known as the fragrant island because of the cocoa, vanilla and ylang ylang plantations, is surrounded by an archipelago of small islands and huge unexplored coral reefs. In this environment of unparalleled beauty such as tropical forests, volcanic lakes, white sandy beaches, chameleons and lemurs, are some of the most attractive spearfishing spots of the entire Indian Ocean, like the Mitsio Islands, the Radama Islands and the legendary Castor Bank!
These coral reefs are home to an incredible variety of marine species, attracting predators like the mighty Dogtooth Tuna, Giant Trevally, Spanish Mackerel, Wahoo, but also the great Marlin and Sailfish, which patrol the drop-offs terrorizing bait fish and the underlying reef fish.
