If “where is the best place to scuba dive?” is the question then “Mozambique” is undoubtedly the answer. Mozambique holidays not only offer paradise along pristine shorelines, but scuba diving that has been compared to diving on The Great Barrier Reef.

One of the most admired scuba diving spots in Mozambique is near Indigo Bay on Bazaruto Island. Indigo Bay Island Resort itself offers guests a variety of 30 chalets and 14 Villas. This luxury Mozambique holiday accommodation provides unspoiled views of the Indian Ocean, which in itself offers endless luxury.


Scuba diving in Mozambique is one of the biggest reasons as to why Mozambique holidays are so popular. The protected Bazaruto Marine National Park boasts a range of reefs and soft corals that are home to various reef fish and other captivating sea life.

  • Harlequin shrimps
  • Tiny Leaf fish
  • Snapper
  • Surgeon
  • Potato Bass
  • Kingfish
  • Barracuda
  • Manta Rays
  • Reef and Nurse sharks
  • Dolphins (often seen on the boat ride)
  • Humpback Whales (between August and October)
  • Whale Sharks (between April and July)
  • Leatherback, Loggerhead and Green turtles
  • Dugong (a very rare but an extraordinary sight)

Night diving in Mozambique

Scuba diving in Mozambique offers a broad range of species, places and adventures to be enjoyed. Night diving and wreck dives are just two more ways of enjoying this popular sport. Most diving sites range from between 12m- 30 m in depth, making Mozambique the ideal spot to enjoy a shallow night dive or a deeper, more adventurous wreck dive.

Other scuba diving highlights

With Bazaruto Island being one of the most enjoyable areas to scuba dive in Mozambique, there are various others that offer as much beauty and exploration.

Whether you are a keen scuba diver with years of experience under your weight belt or a beginner thrilled about discovering what the “scuba fever” is all about, Mozambique holidays are guaranteed to exceed all expectations.

The perfect harmony between underwater and land allows holiday makers to enjoy each aspect of this paradise. If you do not have a scuba diving qualification, then snorkeling above the magic is quite superb.
