Quirimbas Archipelago Scuba Diving Liveaboard Yacht Charter
Suitable for divers and non-divers together (as there is so much to see and do for non-divers)
Swashbuckling adventurers, mighty Sultans, Arabian pirates and buried treasure! The Islands of the Quirimbas Archipelago certainly have a colourful history. As a major trade route for the empires of Greece, Rome, Egypt, Persia, Arabia, India, China and (more recently) Europe, everything from gold to slaves made their passage through these islands.
Today the ancient dhows, still built to the same design as the vessels which for a 1000 years have plied the trade routes along the Eastern shores of Africa, deliver a rather different treasure - an unimaginable underwater dive experience!
