Whale watching off the coast of Madagascar.

Whales are large marine mammals classified as cetaceans. Madagascar is home to two types of whale, the humpback whale and the whale shark, which put on a majestic show for a long time every year. For fans of the sea and marine animals, but also for people who like to explore new sensations, the coasts of Madagascar are ideal for observing marine animals, especially whales, for an entire season. They migrate by the hundreds during the southern winter months off the Malagasy coast, and when they arrive in the south of Madagascar, they divide up and some head for the island of Sainte-Marie to stay on in the bay of Antongile.
