Our diving center in Madagascar is the ideal place for first dives and scuba diving courses.

I had a really great time diving with Quentin and team during my week in Nosy Be. They provide a very luxe diving experience, including: - Highly experienced and professional guides who know the area and marine life well - An extremely helpful crew that allows you to focus on enjoying your time - The fastest and most comfortable dive boat I’ve ever been on, which makes getting to dive sites (even the ones further away) a breeze - High-end equipment in perfect condition Having dived all over the world, I can comfortably say that they are world-class.

Superbe expérience avec Ylang Dive center et Aaron. Mon conjoint a pu faire les exercices en piscine la veille, ce qui nous a permis de gagner du temps pour le jour J. Nous avons eu 2 plongées d’1heure ce qui est hyper rare pour des personnes sans niveau de plongée. Le site de Tanikely est magnifique et la visibilité est top ! La pause goûter entre les 2 plongées et la petit tour sur l’île étaient les bienvenus ! Le bateau est tout neuf et confortable (il y a même des toilettes). Merci Aaron pour ta pédagogie et ta gentillesse !

Très bon club de plongée avec un encadrement au top (Merci mille fois Aaron), un staff ultra-sympa et pro (Merci pour les dauphins, les baleines et les requins baleines !!), du matériel de qualité et un bateau neuf et ultra confortable !! Vous avez tellement embelli notre semaine de plongée que le retour en a été plus que difficile ! Le club est situé dans un hôtel directement sur la plage avec un des meilleurs spots de l'île pour profiter d'un coucher de soleil en sirotant un apéro ! Au plaisir de vous recroiser !! Antoni

I did a open water dive course. Aaron brought me slowly into the skills I have had to learn and did never overwhelm me. He speaks English and I can very much recommend this dive center. The dive sites were great and I finally lost my fear about the ocean. Thanks Aaron for this great course!
Excellent club de plongée que je recommande, j'ai beaucoup apprécié l'expérience pour mon baptême. Des exercices de pratique sont effectués en début de séance pour vous familiariser avec le matériel sous l'eau ce qui vous met dans d'excellentes conditions pour profiter pleinement de votre plongée. Les formateurs Aaron et Quentin sont très professionnels et sympathiques, l'équipement et le bateau sont de tout confort. De plus l'hotel est de toute beauté, donnant directement sur la plage face à l'océan.
