For 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.

Game and Spear Fishing
For the more serious fisherman, we offer the additional service of a Game Fishing Ski Boats, fully equipped with you personal fishing guide and skipper, at additional cost.

Common fish caught off our coast are mackerels, dorado's king fish, sailfish and marlin. The best time for fishing around 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 of the fishing boat, you have the opportunity of fishing the "unfished, outer reefs". While fishing remote areas, you still enjoy the comfort of the yacht and on board meals prepared by our superb chefs. The rest of you family or group are in good hands and close by on the yacht to make this an ideal fishing, relaxing holiday for the whole family. This offers you THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!!

Spear fishing can be done off the yachts, or the game fishing boat. We only hunt game fish and employ very strict safety rules. It is still one of the most challenging sports to be enjoyed.
