George ‘Bic’ Manahira


Expeditions Coordinator
Andavadoaka, Madagascar

Originally from the coastal town of Morombe in southwest Madagascar, Bic has worked with Blue Ventures since our establishment in Madagascar in 2003, with a brief respite during two years working abroad in France, Italy, Germany, and Greece.  Bic was one of the first  employees in Andavadoaka in 2003, where he first learned to SCUBA dive with Blue Ventures. Now one of two Malagasy PADI Open Water Dive Instructors Bic speaks five languages and has played a driving role in the development of Blue Ventures’ conservation efforts in southern Madagascar. Bic’s smile, endless enthusiasm for diving and marine science, and vast knowledge of the Velondriake locally managed marine area (both underwater and on land) make him an invaluable member of the  team.
