The waters around the Bazaruto Archipelago World Heritage Site and National Park are an ecological paradise. At 1400km², it is one of the largest marine conservation areas in the Indian Ocean. Dive Bazaruto are a Padi Certified Dive Centre that offers fantastic diving opportunities in an underwater world ranking alongside Australia’s Great Barrier Reef – the Bazaruto Archipelago.
With sites at a depth of 12 to 30 m and visibility up to 40 m you will find reefs teeming with life, including dolphin, hump back whales, whale sharks, sharks, manta and spotted eagle rays, game fish, green turtles and giant lobster. The endangered dugong of which only a very small number still exist, swim in the shallow crystal clear waters that are also home to starfish, soft and hard corals, anemones, seahorses and an array of beautiful tropical fish.
Other dive sites are located on the seaward side of San Sebastian (south of the islands on the mainland peninsular), a point jutting out in line with the islands. From San Sebastian, the mainland curves south west to form a large bay which is protected from rough seas by the point and the islands.
