In conjunction with our Madagascan partners, Nirvana Fishing, we have put together another exhilarating adventure that will satisfy the keenest of lure angler. West Nosy Be fishing offers its visitors an excellent experience for extreme jigging and casting lures. Explore the vast offshore bench with such fish as Dogtooth Tuna, GT’s and pelagics like Sailfish, Yellow Fin Tuna. Dorado, Wahoo and even Black Marlin. We are very excited about this destination, as West Nosy Be is very much untapped. It is offering its visitors the ability to chance their arm at landing one of the island’s gems.
40 km north-west of the island of Nosy Be, discover the fabulous Leven bench, which covers an area of about 2500 km². West Nosy Be is by far the most significant offshore bank of Madagascar. In connection with the auxiliary benches of the Great Beaver in the South, the Voltigeur in the South-West and the Cordelier in the North, it forms a base of volcanic origin, 90 km long and 15 to 30 km wide, appearing as a vast mass tabular with cut out contours. A gigantic playground whose surface is swollen by uprises to 15 meters deep, where many coral formations develop. Madagascar offers three distinct locations to fish. North Nosy Be fishing, South Nosy Be Fishing and West Nosy Be Fishing. All are offering a unique experience and exceptional scenery around the island of Madagascar.
In popping mode, superb possibilities (still largely unexploited) are offered to you to provoke the GT, Blue Fin Trevallies, Dogtooth Tuna and other fierce opponents. With regards to jigging, you can explore the slopes and tops of the bench where anything awaits you but especially the furious “doggies” (Dogtooth Tuna), which will beat you up and spit you out. West Nosy Be, and especially the Leven bench, is probably one of the best spots in the world for Dogtooth Tuna. Reaching maximum sizes with GT’s over 100lb and Dogtooth Tuna reaching the magical 200lb.
The same with our other Madagascar holidays, we will be using one of our stunning Catamarans, we have a variety on offer and will be assigned dependant on group size, which are the perfect base for living and dining in. We know how important it is to sleep and rest in the best conditions possible. Especially after an exhausting days fishing. That’s why our Catamarans are selected for the quality and comfort of the sleeping cabins. There are also great relaxation areas, either in the lounge with sofas or on deck (sun deck) to enjoy the great outdoors, basking in the sun, watch the magnificent starry sky of Madagascar. Or prepare your fishing arrangements. Head over to our YouTube channel to see how good a West Nosy Be fishing vacation can be.

They are top quality boats, built from 10.30-metre fibreglass shell. They’re made with a central console, engines 2 x 250 HP, equipped with high-tech electronics. With a cabin with WC, washbasin and shower), accommodating up to 4 fishers and able to navigate with ease by seas, unequalled performance (top speed of 45 knots !).
