Comoros: The Little-Visited Country in the Indian Ocean

A useful report from SV Totem on their experience clearing into this little-visited country.

Comoros does not have published official fees or processes for private boats to visit; there is no tourism industry here. That’s what happens when more than twenty coups are attempted since independence from France in 1975.

You can see why boats might have been reluctant to visit. And it’s easy to go elsewhere because the French island of Mayotte is a mere daysail away and Madagascar is only about 250 miles to the east.

SV Totem visited here in August 2015.
