Diving in Mozambique

Explore diving in Mozambique

Mention Mozambique and most divers think megafauna. Whale sharks and manta rays prowl the plankton-rich water year-round and humpback whales pass by on their way through from the Antarctic.

Mozambique has more than 2000 km of coastline. To the north, the Quirimbas Archipelago is home to the largest marine protected area on the African continent. These protected coral reefs and mangrove forests are an important nursery for reef fish and five of the ocean’s seven marine turtles among other notable denizens.

The south is a haven for nesting marine turtles. Off Tofo, whale shark alley attracts whale sharks all year. Sightings are almost guaranteed. This alone will put Mozambique on many scuba divers’ bucket lists.
