Embark on our boat to come and observe the humpback whales: A dream day awaits you! 

Accompanied by a specialized guide, you set off on an excursion to discover this mythical animal. Humpback whales, which come to reproduce and give birth to their calves, are present in the waters of Nosy Be from August to November.

This migration is an opportunity to observe them in an exceptional setting with often very favorable sea conditions. Whether mother/calf pairs resting on the plateau or groups of active males looking to reproduce, each encounter gives rise to special moments! 

During these outings, we very regularly observe other species of cetaceans (spinner dolphin, spotted dolphin, Indo-Pacific dolphins, etc.).

Compliance with instructions and behavior with animals is a priority for us ! Le briefing, qui vous sera donné au départ de la sortie, vous donnera les comportements a respecter lors de cette sortie.

Après la matinée en mer, vous profiterez d’un déjeuner sur la plage de Nosy Sakatia et d’une rencontre avec les tortues vertes qui viennent se nourrir sur les herbiers. 

Humpback whales can also be observed during outings Safari Marin Nosy Iranja, Bivouac Nosy Iranja, and Marine Safari Baie des Russes between August and October.

In Nosy Be, with sea condition often favorable during this period, a comfortable and suitable boat for this type of excursion, you will spend very emotional moments. Between the mothers accompanied by their calf who rest in the calm waters of the bay and the males who fight offshore to seduce the females, the show will be there!
Our boat is equipped with a hydrophone. During this excursion, when the conditions are right, you may have chance to hear the whalesong.
