DIVING The Bazaruto Marine National Park is one of the largest of its kind in the world and home to a wide range of marine species. Scuba divers can swim with dolphins, the mighty humpback whale, manta rays, reef sharks, and hosts of exquisitely colored reef fish. The area also boasts one of the world’s largest breeding herds of dugongs, as well as bales of leatherback, loggerhead, and green turtles that often come ashore to lay their eggs on the sandy beaches. Our on-site PADI dive team co-ordinates diving courses catering all the way from beginners to advanced reef divers.
