Gap

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 1 votes

Dive site the Gap is located approximately 10 minutes by boat from Wimbe Beach. The Gap is to the right of the main beach area, two thirds the way out to Ponta Maunhane, the right hard tip of land looking out to sea where the continental shelf comes very close to land. About 600m offshore you have an almost sheer drop from 12m-16m down to anywhere between 80m and 120m. This is the area where we see all the big game fish coming through. Species encountered while scuba diving are Zebra Sharks, Gre...

Barra Lagoon

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 1 votes

This is a very, very special place for us, and a completely different dive to any you'll experience out to sea. When we take divers here, they usually have a 90-minute dive and still don't want to come out! It is a paradise for macro photographers and good buoyancy skills are essential, because of this sites sensitivity.We dive a small area of the lagoon at slack low tide, it is only 4m deep and at first just looks like an oyster shell bed, but if you stop and watch, you notice that there is mov...

Klipfontein

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 1 votes

Mozambiques best wreck, a 10500 ton liner, suitable for qualified and experienced decompression divers, deep enough to keep the muppets off it and not so deep as to require lots of helium! Huge brindle bass, mantas, sharks and schooling pelagic fish. Technical equipment rental and all gas mixtures available nearby. IANTD technical courses run on site....

Simon's Town

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.5, 2 votes

This reef has stunning topography, with huge pillars of rock coming up 8m from the floor, with lots of surrounding life and colour. Goldies and Wrasse are all around them as well as large shoals of Snappers, Fusiliers, and Bigeyes. The reef has deep gullies and holes that head off in all directions. So you must look in each hole and swim along each gully looking for colourful Nudibranchs, Lizardfish, Flutemouth and Goatfish to name a few. This is a very cool dive for the shoals of game fish, so ...

Two-Mile Reef

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.3, 3 votes

Two Mile is a barrier reef protecting a narrow channel between the high sand dunes on the south of Bazaruto Island and the long, white beaches of the North Point of Benguerra Island. The north tip of the reef is mid-way between the islands and runs southwards, parallel to Benguerra Island, approximately 4.5 kilometers east of its shore. The top of the reef protrudes from the sea at low tide, and slopes gently towards the east. It is well known for its excellent snorkeling sites inside the reef s...

Chamber of Secrets

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.0, 1 votes

This is a serious quality dive for those of you that love testing your buoyancy skills and getting in to tight spots. The reef is shaped like a massive double-walled horseshoe and on either side the walls reach a height of about 7m high. On the sand it is 21m deep and on the top it varies between 14m and 16m. We drop onto the left side of this reef and you have two choices: you can circle the two huge boulders that spring up from the floor, all the while checking the sand for Bluespotted, Whip-t...

Aquarium

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 1.0, 2 votes

The small but amazing reef Aquarium lies in 25 m of water. Although this reef is small it is one of the prettiest reefs in Ponta do Oura. Like Mavericks, it is a large boulder but is hollow inside and on the bottom it has big "windows" to look into. Giant Sea Fans grow on the inside stretching halfway to the top. The outside is covered in Turret Coral and Thistle Soft Coral. Goldies float above the reef almost increasing the size of it while a resident Potato Bass hovers in the hallow reef. Gard...

Amazon

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 1.0, 2 votes

This is an awesome dive site that is rarely visited in a current because of its size and depth. But it is a stunning inverted ‘V' shaped reef that promises sightings of resident Leopard and White and Black Tip reef sharks. Sometimes we've even seen Tiger Sharks here. We drop onto the west wall that rises about 10m from the sand and the top of the wall is at 23m. As we swim around and along the edge, we have to swim through multitudes of reef fish that seem completely oblivious to our presence ...

Manta Coast

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 1.0, 2 votes

Although there are manta rays to be found all around the coast, seaside resort towns such as Morrumbene and the Ponto de Barra peninsula with Praya do Tofo and Guinjata Bay are especially popular. Inhambane is the most touristic province in Mozambique offering from simple family style holidays up to personal scuba diving trips and honeymoons. The main town is Maxixe, situated across the bay of historic Inhambane City. Traditional dhows are used as ferries and fishing trawlers and remember at it ...
