Scuba Diving Quirimbas Archipelago

Scuba Diving Pemba Beach Hotel and the Indian Ocean islands of Quilalea Island

3 nights  Pemba Beach Hotel/4 nights Quilálea Island 

There are 32 islands that make up the Quirimbas Archipelago.  They lie between Pemba in Northern Mozambique and the Rio Rovuma - the river that forms the border with Tanzania and Mozambique. This area remains one of the last undeveloped jewels in Africa.

Virtually unknown to the outside world, the people who inhabit the islands have quietly gone about their daily business. Local fishermen build Arab style dhows hand-hewn from trees. They navigate hundreds of kilometres of winding channels and mangrove lagoons casting their nets and lines much as they have done for the last 1000 years. 
 
It is the ‘undiscovered’ nature of these islands that make it so special for the sport of scuba diving. These islands have no cars or pollution, few hotels and therefore very few tourists. For the diver looking for a very special location, this is it!
 
With up to 30-metre visibility and water temperatures around a balmy 28 degrees C you can expect to see all coral reef species typical of the Indian Ocean region as well as game fish - yellow fin tuna, dogtooth tuna and marlin. There are also manta rays, eight species of shark (to date), whale sharks, huge schools of feeding barracuda, king fish of many species, red snappers, green and hawksbill turtles, pods of humpback dolphins not to mention the humpbacked whales in season. When you are done with diving for the day perhaps you'll even be fortunate enough to see a green turtle coming to lay her eggs on one of the many pristine beaches.
