Diving Bazaruto Experience
Our Diving Bazaruto Package is aimed at experienced divers who are looking for challenging dives at some of the world’s best dive locations during their Mozambique holiday. It offers no less than six dives in the incomparable Bazaruto Archipelago. Come and explore the fascinating world below the waves. Explore famous Two Mile Reef - a Turtle lover’s paradise.
Other dive sites visited include Five Mile Reef, a veritable tropical aquarium of corals and reef fish. The package culminates in a dive at Cabo Sao Sebastiao. This site is famous for its many Mantas. The dives also provide opportunities to see Giant guitar sharks, Hammerheads, Mantas, Morays and shoals or reef fish.
When doing our Dive Bazaruto Package please note that you need to report to the dive centre the day before, so that wet suits and equipment can be arranged. You also cannot fly within 24 hours of diving. These factors need to be taken into account when planning your trip. The groups are kept small with just 6 divers creating an intimate diving experience.
Day 1: Vilanculos - Bazaruto Archipelago
On the first day of your Diving Bazaruto Package you will be collected by car or boat from your Mozambique accommodation. You will travel 45 minutes by boat to Benguerra Island. The boat will stop off inside the reef and prepare for the dive. The dive instructor will brief you about the first spot you will dive.
This is usually Two Mile Reef. The dive usually lasts between 45 – 60 minutes. There are numerous dive sites and you can dive up to 20m. Most of the reef is shallower and the boat takes out mixed groups of divers and snorkellers so nobody misses out. The reef is famous for its Sharp Nosed and Devil Rays as well as many Turtles.
There will then be a break on the island and you will enjoy a packed lunch. There will be time to relax and explore a bit of the island. Afterwards the dive instructor will brief you on the conditions of the dive site where you will have your afternoon dive. This part of the reef is covered in Anemones and Moray Eels are commonly seen, as are massive Groupers and Crocodile Fish.
The second dive will be shorter and in the mid afternoon you will travel by boat back to Vilanculos. Late in the afternoon the boat will drop you back at the beach. You will then head back to your Mozambique accommodation.
