Scuba diving

Mozambique's offers truly some of the most unforgettable diving amongst the warm tropical waters of the Indian Ocean or in fact, anywhere in the world! The area is home to over a 1000 different species of Tropical fish. Many of the reef's can be found in a pristine condition with a plethora of colours and formations with many new uncharted dive sites still being found.

Whether your are novice or an experienced diver there is something to suit every ability PLUS there is no better place to start your underwater adventure with the opportunity to participate in the PADI Open Water certification, first in the Pambele pool and then out into the warm, clear turquoise water..

The Bazaruto Archipelago is noted for not only its diversity but also the size of the reef fish, with Parrotfish, Angelfish, Batfish, Potato Groupers, Morays, and others all reaching exceptional sizes. Blacktip and Whitetip sharks, Blue Spotted Stingray, and Electric Rays are common. There are iridescent corals and nudibranches, giant clams, rare Pipefish, Seahorses and more.

Dugongs are present but hard to spot as they exist in only small numbers. In addition, they tend to frequent the seagrass beds as opposed to the reefs where most diving and snorkelling takes place. Turtles are common, with green turtles nesting on the beaches between November and March.

Humpback whales are seen from June to December when they come close to shore to shelter their calves. Spinner, Bottlenose and Common dolphins are seen all year round. The majestic and stunning Whale Sharks also frequent these waters and offer a diver the opportunity of a life time to dive with these gentle giants.
