Once we have finished the Safari we will then be collected from Maputo and taken to the first dive location at Tofo Beach. We will then spend up to 5 days diving in this region which again is a great time to be at Tofo. We are likely to be in time to see the last Humpback Whales migrate and also be in season for some fantastic diving. From Tofo Beach we will then be collected and taken to the Barrazuto Archipelago. Here we will complete up to 3 days diving to see the best dive sites in the area. The diving here is amazing and is less visited than Tofo Beach. After 3 days diving here we will then catch a flight back to Maputo and transfer to the last dive location at Ponta Do Ouro. We will spend up to 3 days diving in Ponta Do Ouro where it will be shark season. We will be able to complete some fantastic shark diving. The type of sharks will include tigers, bull, hammerhead, silvertips, blacktips and Leopard sharks. We have the option of going to the Byde Grand Canyon which is an amazing experience and is located within reach of Maputo.

Diving
Tofo Beach
Tofo Beach has some amazing diving. Scuba diving off Tofo is a real treat for those who love marine megafauna. The plankton rich waters are known to attract whale sharks, manta rays and also humpback whales. Visibility will be good in October.

Bazaruto Archipelago
There are five main islands making up the Bazaruto Archipelago. Life doesn't get more picture-perfect than on Mozambique's Bazaruto Archipelago. Head beneath the waves and you'll find a National Park full of unspoilt waters and reefs, which offer some of the finest diving in the world.

Ponta Do Ouro
There are over 20 dive sites on the reefs of Ponta do Ouro, Ponta Malongane and Ponta Mamoli, home to an amazing and bio-diverse marine life primarily famed for shark encounters and suitable for experienced divers. Experienced divers will want to head out further to the edge of the continental shelf to sites like Pinnacles where hammerhead, bull and dusky sharks are frequently seen.
