The Quirimbas Archipelago diving is notable specifically for the quality of the corals and the abundance of tropical fish. For the most part, the area has escaped the bleaching effect that has affected so much of the coral life around the world, the Indian Ocean included.

Our top picks for diving in the Quirimbas are...
Nuarro Lodge - direct access to sea, very close to the continental shelf and plenty of undiscovered sites make this a perfect dive location. Offers a variety of shore dives on the wall and five pinnacles. Contact us for more information.
Vamizi - some of the dives here are said to be the best in the world. Neptune's Arm is situated on the edge of a spectacular drop-off - the wall starts at 10m and plunges dramatically to below 200m.
Medjumbe – second most northerly of the Quirimbas Islands, a gorgeous lodge perched on a tiny strip of sand, and surrounded by incredible variety of diving. Contact us for more information.
Diving in the Inhambane region around Barra and Tofo Beach is renowned for diving with Whale Shark and Manta Rays. The best season for diving with Whale Sharks is October to April, however chances of sightings outside this period are also very good.
Our top picks for diving at Inhambane are...
Barra Lodge & Flamingo Bay - sister properties at the top of the inhambane peninsula. All diving operated by the excellent Barra dive centre. Contact us for more information.
Baia Sonambula - great little owner run and managed luxury guest house in Tofo, that is an excellent base for the area, and its renowned whale shark diving. Contact us for more information.
This group of 5 islands is perhaps the best option for both leisure divers who also want to enjoy some of the Mozambique coasts famous ‘barefoot luxury’ beach lodges.

PONTA D’OURO DIVING
Ponta D’Ouro is well known for the resident dolphins in the area that visitors can arrange to swim with and learn more about via “Dolphin Encountours".
