the seeker of adventure or restful tranquility, Island
Quest has something for everyone.
Sit back and relax. Island Quest will arrange your holiday
to include your
flights, transfers, meet and greet at the Madagascar airports,
accommodation and activities......on land or on board.
Once you have arrived in Nosy Be from Antananarivo (Tana),
the friendly personnel of the yacht of your choice will meet
you on Nosy Be Airport and escort you to the yacht. After
a refreshing drink with the yacht crew, a custom made itinerary
will be decided on considering your personal requirements.
Each day may be a new island experience, relaxing on remote
beaches with white sand, turquoise blue water and palm trees.
Or for the more eco driven, the exploring of untouched tropical
forests and their inhabitants including the indigenous lemur
monkey, a large variety of insects, reptiles and various tropical
flowers. All these can be experienced while taking a relaxing
stroll through some of the villages and surrounding rain forests.
Island Quest specializes in helping you uncover the magnificence
and beauty of the sea and its fascinating inhabitants. The
skipper will assist divers to explore the mystique of the
underwater world. With the help of on-board sonar scanners
and depth sounders on some of the yachts, it's not uncommon
to make new and exciting underwater discoveries. Our sailing
catamarans offer comfortable access to the ocean.
Between Diving and Fishing, there's always the thrill of the
wind in your face as we sail the turquoise seas, Island Hopping
and anchoring at the many remote calm bays for a fresh experience
along the tropical shores. Sailing on the North West shore
of Madagascar we are protected from major weather systems,
therefore you do not have to worry about sea sickness and
big storms. Excellent sailing conditions are experienced with
constant and gentle land and sea breezes. This together with
the stability of the catamarans makes it an ideal holiday
for the family from 1 to 101 years old.

For the more serious fisherman, we offer the additional service
of a Game Fishing Ski Boats, fully equipped with you personal

Nosy Be is from June to October and we fish the untouched
waters north of Mitsio Islands from October to January.
With the combination of accommodation on a yacht and the services

boat. We only hunt game fish and employ very strict safety
