Day 1 : Nosy Be - Nosy Komba
Embark on board your trimaran in the late afternoon. Your crew welcomes you and establishes with you an itinerary perfectly adapted to your desires. Once on board, your captain sets sail for Nosy Komba, also known as Lemur Island or Nosy Ambariovato, which means the island surrounded by rocks.

The place is a real paradise for lovers of wide-open spaces and diving.

Day 3 : Nosy Mitsio - Nosy Ankarea

    Juste parfait!

    Hervé, Leo et toute leur équipe (Augustin capitaine, Hugo cuisinier et Tina Hôtesse) sont juste formidables et ont rendu cette croisière privative exceptionnelle ! Toute l'équipe est à l'écoute et leur prévenance est irréprochable. Pour nous la meilleure expérience de ces 20 derniers années

    Le dépaysement total dans le confort et la bonne humeur pour une croisière autour de Nosy Be !!

    Nous avons passé 5 jours inoubliables à bord du Trimaran Sésame et en compagnie de son équipage ! Que ce soit le capitaine, le moussaillon, le cuisinier ou l'hôtesse, tout le monde a contribué à rendre notre croisière la plus agréable possible à travers leurs attentions, leur disponibilité et leur gentillesse. Nos deux enfants de 5 et 8 ans ont apprécié le confort et la sécurité qui règne à bord, ainsi que l'accompagnement du capitaine Hervé et du moussaillon "le Chinois" lors de chacune des sorties, plongées ou escales. Le cuisinier, à l'écoute de nos suggestions et envies, est largement responsable des kilos pris en dégustant le poisson, les fruits de mer, les crustacés et le zébu ! Nous avons pu observer les lémuriens à Nosy Tanikely et Nosy Antsoha, les baleines dans la baie des russes, les tortues à Nosy Sakatia, les boas constrictor à Nosy Komba, et toute sorte de poisson lors de nos différentes plongées. Et le paradis sur terre se trouve à Nosy Iranja, avec une eau transparente aux reflets turquoises venant lécher une bande de sable qui relie les deux îles. N'hésitez pas à faire la visite, vous ne le regretterez pas !! Le bateau est grand, stable et confortable. De conception unique, c'est un palace flottant bien entretenu par son équipage.

Frequently asked questions

  • Which vaccines are recommended to go to Madagascar?

    For a trip to Madagascar, we advise you to check if you are up to date with your vaccines such as universal vaccines (DTCP, hepatitis B) and hepatitis A.
    Other vaccines are to be carried out as:
    - typhoid fever;
    - yellow fever; only mandatory if you have planned a trip to continental black Africa before or after your cruise
    - rabies; for stays in remote areas or long stays.
  • How can I arrange my transfer from the airport to the boat? What about provisioning?

    After you have made your booking the base manager will contact you to give you more information on your cruise. Make sure you confirm what time you will be arriving and also your flight details. A taxi or minibus will meet you at the airport and bring you directly to the boat.
    Provisioning and meals will be taken care of by your crew. If you have any allergies or dietary requirements (vegan, vegetarian etc…) make sure to let the base manager know.
  • What does a skipper do? And what about a hostess?

    All the skippers which we offer are qualified, have the necessary professional licenses and speak fluent English. If you have any particular demands regarding a skipper make sure to let us know.
    The skipper is in charge of navigation and your safety on board. Feel free to try out some of the manoeuvres with him; he will be happy to teach you the basics of sailing.
    Regarding sleeping arrangements, the skipper will sleep on board, either in a cabin or in the common area (saloon).
    The skipper is not in charge of cooking or washing up. A hostess (or cook) will prepare your meals, clean the saloon area and the cabins and make sure the boat is kept tidy.
  • How are meals on board the boat organized?

    It is customary for private cruises with crew to pay in advance an amount of approximately 20%-25% of the rental amount (Advance Provisioning Allowance) in order to cover daily expenses (meals, drinks, fuel, port charges, taxes,...). A preference form will be sent to you to inform the crew of your specific wishes and needs. The captain and his crew will have made sure that your boat is ready to leave when you arrive onboard. Please note that the APA is an estimate of the operating cost and that part of this amount can be paid to you at the end of the charter, with a list of invoices and expenses incurred. However, some privatized cruises include this boarding box and full board, so check with your GlobeSailor advisor.
  • What is the currency used in Madagascar?

    Madagascar's currency unit is the ariary (Ar), a word meaning "five francs". In 2005, this currency replaced the Malagasy franc (FMG). In some provinces, prices are sometimes given in Malagasy francs, which can be confusing (1 Ar = 5 Fmg).

    It is also illegal to leave Malagasy territory with 400 000Ar (135€) or more onboard. Today, 1 € is equivalent to about 3400 Ar.
  • What payments must I make in order to confirm my booking?

    To confirm your booking you should inform your GlobeSailor advisor who will put an option (hold) on the cabin for a certain time until we receive your down payment.
    The booking will only be considered final once we have received your down payment (by bank transfer, Paypal or credit card) which is 50% of the total amount. A 100% down payment is required for any booking made less than one month before departure.
    The balance should be paid no later than one month before boarding, either to the base or to GlobeSailor. Mandatory extras and options will be payable locally. Be sure to check with your advisor or the base prior to departure.
  • What happens if I need to cancel my cruise?

    If you wish to make a cancellation, you should contact your GlobeSailor advisor as soon as possible. Whatever the circumstances, you will be charged the following cancellation fees, depending on when the cancellation is made: up to 90 days before departure = 30%; 89 to 60 days before departure = 50%; 59 to 30 days before departure = 75%; 29 days or less before departure = 100% of the total cost of your booking. We recommend that you sign up for cancellation insurance with your personal insurance provider.
