3h 30 min
Dive or snorkel on the amazing Bazaruto Archipelago, climb the stunning Dune of Bazaruto, admire one of the best reef in Mozambique, and have a look at the desert paradise of Benguerra.
The Bazaruto Reserve is now home to different species of turtles including the giant loggerhead turtle, the hawksbill and the green turtle. The reefs are colourful and plentiful and frequently visited by large pelagic such as manta rays, mobula rays (devil rays) blue tailed stingrays, grey reef sharks and white rip reef sharks.
Leaving from Bazaruto or Benguerra, we go to Two Mile Reef for the first dive. Maximum bottom time 60 minutes, air permitting.
After the dive, we enjoy a fantastic lunch break on Bazaruto, where we spend about an hour, which gives us plenty of time to rest, climb the dune and enjoy the stunning view from the top.
After the surface interval, we go back to Two Mile Reef for the second dive, but to a different site. It’s also possible to do only one dive or combine one dive with a snorkeling trip.
We snorkel when the tide is at its lowest, the Aquarium being protected from the waves of the Indian Ocean by Two Mile Reef. The Aquarium is like a big swimming pool scattered with corals abundant with tropical reef fish. The boat drops the divers outside the reef and comes back and stays with the snorkelers inside the reef (approx 45 minutes).
Snorkelers spend the rest of the day on Bazaruto (3 hours to 3 ½ hours) to snorkel from the shore, enjoy the dune and its panoramic views, trek into the bush… or simply relax on the beach with a good book! On the way out or on the way back we’ll stop on Benguerra Island to have a glimpse of this amazing piece of paradise.
