Mozambique offers some of the best diving in southern Africa for divers of all skill levels: 2,500 km of beautiful, unspoiled coastline, year-round warm waters, shipwrecks, caverns, walls, pinnacles, many colorful unspoiled coral reefs which are host to some of the most amazing marine life the world has to offer. Over 3,000 fish species live here, representing over 80% of the Indo-Pacific region, including many tropical and game fish, as well as rare creatures like dugongs, 5 marine turtle species, and humpback whales from June until October.

Many professional dive schools, most of which are PADI-affiliated, are found along these waters. The main diving spots are the Quirimbas Archipelago, Pemba, Inhambane Province (Bazaruto Archipelago, Benguerra Island, Tofo, Pomene, and Zavora with its two long reef systems separated by the impressive wreck of the Klipfontein at 52m/177ft deep) and at Maputo Province on the southern coast (Ponta do Ouro, Ponta Malongane, and Inhaca Island). The Quirimbas Archipelago on the north coast consists of over 30 captivating tropical islands, 11 of which are included in Quirimbas National Park, which has 375 species of fish and prolific marine life. Fringing the Quirimbas Archipelago are some of the richest coral reefs in East Africa, often visited by huge game fish, turtles, stingrays, abundant reef fish, and humpbacks, offering a vast range of diving opportunities.The list of dive sites is practically endless here. Some of the best are Rush Hour, Rolas Rainbow, Neptune’s Arm, The Edge of Reason, and Cocoons (named after the abundant giant barrel sponges).
