The clear waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago are warm year round, ranging from 25 - 29 degrees Celsius, with an average visibility of 20 metres reaching as far as 50 metres in summer, creating ideal scuba diving conditions. Explore dazzling reefs that are only accessible from our island, and as we only take out small groups of divers, these reefs remain pristine and healthy for future generations to enjoy. A range of scuba courses cater for beginners and qualified divers looking to take their skills to the next level. While certified divers can book excursions to experience some of the best coral life in the world, with a series of incredible dive sites all within a 15 minute boat ride of our resort.
Discover Sambi Sambi’s large coral mount, which rises to a depth of 3 - 5 metres at the pinnacle and features a 12 metre plateau with sides sloping steeply into the depths of the ocean where large hard coral formations are found, along with large schools of fish, the occasional turtle, as well as small kingfish and dogtooth tuna brought in by the incoming tide. Neptune’s Nursery is a large flat coral reef system made up of finger corals, large table corals and a diversity of reef creatures, including smaller macro marine life such a nudibranches and shrimps, accompanied by plentiful blue spotted stingrays and camouflaged crocodile fish for divers with keen eyes. Large and flat, Brereton’s Reef is home to small coral bommies covered in small fish species such as anthias or goldies, as well as a number of blue spotted stingrays. Most impressive of all, the Edge of Reason features a 15 metre shelf leading to a sheer vertical cliff dropping off into the depths of an abyss. This stunning wall dive is covered in huge gorgonian fans and features small caves. Admire a huge school of giant sweetlips who hang motionless as you swim by, as well as groupers that are sometimes larger than the divers, green turtles, honeycomb and giant morays, ribbon eels, longnose hawkfish and leaf fish.
