1250 miles of coastline lapped by the warm Indian Ocean presents endless dive opportunities
Mozambique is some what of a hidden gem among divers although every year it grows in popularity. Known for encounters with big marine life and places that are seldom dived by others. It really has everything from coral gardens, shark diving, vast drop offs and remote luxury diving. You will not be disappointed with diving here in Mozambique.
We can combine the diving here with on land safaris and South Africa diving as well.
Please give us a call to discuss your individual requirements.
Tofo If there was one place on Earth that you are almost guaranteed to see Whale Sharks it is the Tofo region. Whale shark alley surges with rich plankton blooms and creates a perfect feeding place for these gentle giants. It's also a great place to see the graceful manta rays and hammerheads. Humpback whales pass by on their annual migration so this really is a great place to spot the large marine animals.
Northern Islands This area of northern Mozambique is all about remote luxury and divers can expect to be able to explore some incredible diving in one of the world’s last wildernesses. Ibo is the crowning jewel and has been described as the most romantic island in the world.
Quirimbas National Park has is the epitome of what we love about Africa. There aren't many places that you can see elephants moving through mango trees just metres from the crystal clear azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Slightly further inland you will find four of the 'big five' roaming the park. It's a perfect destination for combining on land and in water safaris.
Around the archipelago are some of the richest coral reefs and gardens in East Africa. They are often visited by huge game fish, turtles, humpbacks and other cetaceans. They offer a vast range of diving opportunities from vast drop-offs with rolling currents, for the experienced diver, to sheltered tranquil coral gardens, perfectly suited to beginners.
The Spice Islands, Zanzibar and Pemba Surrounded by a fantastic coral reef structure Zanzibar is a flat, palm-clad coral atoll and the waters here are teeming with marine life. Shallow coral reefs, sloping banks and vertical drop-offs with hard and soft corals and over 350 species of Indo-Pacific marine fauna await.
Pemba is often over looked due to its more famous neighbour. The flat island of Zanzibar is only 50km away but Pemba is a different story as it's hilly, fertile with lush vegetation. There is lots of unspoilt dive sites to choose from - notably 'The Gap'. This spectacular wall dive is located on the edge of the continental shelf on a drop-off of that plunges to 80-120 metres. It’s a prolific feeding ground for big game fish. The dive starts at around 10 metres and features dramatic structures adorned with large gorgonian fans at about 37 metres. Sunfish and devil ray encounters are a real possibility here.
