Mantas, Turtles, Sharks, Whales and more! Experienced divers can enjoy this 5 day Mozambique Diving Bazaruto Package which includes dives at Two Mile Reef, one of the most pristine dive sites in the world.
Mozambique 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. Come and explore the fascinating world below the waves. Explore famous Two Mile Reef - a Turtle lover's paradise.
Two Mile is a long stretch of pristine coral reefs. The northern side is abundant in colourful coral, while the southern side is flatter and sandier with a good chance of seeing big rays. The underwater life around is amazingly varied, with 75% of the Indian Ocean reef fish having been spotted here, 7 different kind of rays, reef sharks, turtles and more. The best part is that you will not see anybody else underwater and the only bubbles you will see will be from your fellow divers in your group (max 6 divers).
Please note you cannot fly within 24 hours of diving which is why day 4 has been kept for a free day. This itinerary can be extended or shortened to your liking - please speak to your Siyabona Africa Destination Specialist.
