Deep Sea Fishing
The Bazaruto Archipelago has been a National Park since 1971, and a strong marine conservation policy of tag and release ensures sustainability, and many a prize catch. Anglers looking to test their skills can try their hand at catching sailfish and wahoo with our exclusive Bazaruto fishing experience.
The Archipelago is also renowned as Africa’s most productive area for black, blue and striped marlin, with black marlin catches coming in at a staggering 1000 pounds, while kingfish, queen fish, barracuda, mackerel and yellow fin tuna are just a few more of the delights in store with fishing in Mozambique.
Dugong, Turtle, Whale & Dolphin Watching
Set out on an offshore boat trip to view some of the Indian Ocean’s most mesmerising sea creatures. Spot dolphins dancing in the waves. Look out for humpback whales from August to October, and whale sharks from April to July.
Turtles also frequent the waters, and leatherback, loggerhead and green turtles often come ashore to lay their eggs on Bazaruto’s sandy beaches. Lucky guests may also glimpse the elusive dugong, since Bazaruto boasts the largest population of this rare “sea cow” on the African east coast.
Traditional Dhow Excursions
Travel as the locals do and experience authentic Bazaruto by navigating the archipelago’s crystal clear waters in a traditional dhow.
Used throughout the Indian Ocean for thousands of years, these slender long-hulled vessels are the preferred mode of transport for Bazaruto’s traders and fishermen. Enjoy a range of excursions, including a romantic sunset voyage as a perfect end to a day in paradise.
