Dugongs of Bazaruto


Seeing the Dugongs of Bazaruto from your spectacular villa on Bazaruto Island in the luxurious Indigo Bay Island Resort & Spa is one of the most unforgettable experiences of your life! These gracious sea cows are now so endangered that to see one or a few is magical. It all seems so right to see these ocean giants from Indigo Bay where tall palm trees line the dazzling white beaches and an idyllic island resort makes the perfect base from which to enjoy ocean cruises and other water sports. Read more about the activities at Indigo Bay here.

Divers can get up close and personal with Dugongs when they set off to explore the depths of the Bazaruto Archipelago – more than 100 species of coral, hundreds of tropical fish species, dolphins, turtles, sharks and whales. The Dugong tops the list of most divers who seek them out as they graze the sea grasses way below the surface of the ocean.

The Dugongs of Bazaruto can get as long as three metres and as heavy as 500kg. They are some of the largest marine animals existing within one of the largest marine reserves in Mozambique, the Bazaruto Archipelago. These dumpy grey mammals send their days digging up grasses from the ocean floor using their flippers which look like paddles but which also feature five fingers used for swimming and digging.

Commonly known as the sea pig or sea camel, the name Dugong actually comes from the Malay term “duyung” which means Lady of the Sea. They move slowly and elegantly, like large ladies – and they swim beautifully thanks to their buoyant bodies and streamlined shapes – it is quite possible that sailors of yore mistook Dugongs for mermaids and this is how legends about mermaids first started – with sightings of Dugongs going about their peaceful existence!

Dugongs like shallow warm ocean waters where sea grasses grow thick and where they remain safe from large waves and storms. They do breathe with lungs so have to surface for air often as they cannot hold their breath for as long as whales, dolphins and porpoises. They never go on land and like to hang around in large herds.

Dugongs in the Bazaruto Archipelago remain endangered and are mostly seen in small groups of up to three animals. Females only have one baby every three to seven years which contributes to their rareness. Dugongs can live up to 70 years! In Mozambique they are a protected species and conservation organisations are trying to raise awareness about them. They have been hunted for food and caught in fishing nets.

So you can book an ocean cruise at Indigo Bay and set off on a mission to find your Dugong of Bazaruto. It will the sighting of a lifetime for sure so take time to snap some pictures and watch them as they graze. Talk about them over a dinner of fresh seafood as you watch the sun set on another stunning Indigo Bay day. Book your trip with the travel experts today.
