Diving in Mozambique
Mozambique is home to some of the very best diving sites in the Indian Ocean. In addition to Vamizi being one of our favourite island retreats, it also boasts one of the world’s most celebrated dive sites, Neptune’s Arm. Here, one must keep an eye out for the humpback whale as you travel by boat to this incredible site where coral gardens tumble down over the edge of a thousand metre cliff so crowded with fish you can hardly see the view. Vamizi is also home to many shallower dive sites with plenty of sensational snorkelling spots along the house reef.
The combination of wild underwater landscapes, the bounty of tropical ocean currents and an abundance of marine life, makes diving on Vamizi Island beyond world class. Thankfully these reefs have not been bleached by rising sea temperatures, remaining chilled by the deep water which make Mozambique’s some of the healthiest coral reefs in the world. The variety of some 400 different species of fish is incredible with shoals of tuna, barracuda, grey reef sharks, groupers, turtles, whale sharks and even the elusive dugong.
