“Honore is a fantastic captain (as he was for us in 2008) and knows everything about Madagascar from the culture to the geography to politics and biology. We were so privileged to have him as our guide. “

Monica Murray – Izy Safari – Tented camps

“We choose this destination to be able to snorkel and fish as we are avid water sports people. We weren’t disappointed and the cost of doing this with Marcine’s boat was affordable for the South African Rand.”
