To read about Madagascar and Nosy Be, please see the previous trip.
This voyage begins in Nosy Be, Madagascar where we will by now have a good handle on all the best spots to hit. After a few days of kiting, exploring and sipping local rum we'll head off on a comfortable (and protected) beam reach for what should be a fast and interesting coastal run all the way down the west coast of Madagascar to Toliara. Anywhere that seems worthy of a stop we'll stop! This is a gunk holing and exploration dream trip. Easy sailing, wild anchorages, wicked undiscovered surf and definitely the adventure of a LIFETIME! Please note this trip is 12 days to account for the miles covered.
Getting to Nosy Be: Air Madagascar links the Capital of Antananarivo with Nosy Be (Fascene airport) daily. Please note if you fly to Madagascar on Air Madagascar domestic flights are discounted 50%- save your air ticket for domestic purchases! You can also come overland, but it is a mission- the roads are pretty terrible and overland travel is slow but a hell of an adventure! If you come overland you will take a ferry from the mainland to Nosy Be, where we will pick you up.
Getting home from Toliara is via plane back to the Capital in Antananarivo or for the more adventurous- a solid two day drive through a wicked, wicked part of the world!
Please note: Madagascar carries a Malaria and Dengue Fever risk and you'll need some immunizations like Typhoid and Yellowfever before you enter. Please check with the CDC well before your trip.
