The scuba and dive courses at Indigo Bay, otherwise known as Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort & Spa, are some of the best in the Indian Ocean, off Mozambique’s coastline at Vilankulo. Situated in the spectacular Bazaruto Archipelago, this world class Mozambique holiday destination is definitely first and foremost a diving delight!
Falling within the boundary of the Bazaruto Marine National Park, Bazaruto Island is the sublime setting for Indigo Bay resort – the protected coral reefs are home to some endangered creatures such as the elusive Dugong, the Manta Ray and the huge Whale shark. Look out for Humpback whales in season and enjoy sunset ocean cruises to find dolphins flitting about in the waves. Read more about the national park here.
When divers get to Indigo Bay, they can join a course or do some advanced dives with the expert dive instructors at the fully-equipped dive centre at the resort. If you are a diving guru then head out for crazy reef diving to find Snapper, Surgeon, Potato bass, Kingfish, Barracuda, Manta rays and Reef sharks.
Indigo Bay, or Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort & Spa, prefers to use PADI Instructors and Dive Masters as a minimum standard. Crew do not take divers out on any deep dives that need a chamber. The dive sites are named after the amazing marine wildlife or features found there…
Manta Ray Reef, North Point, is a flat reef, in shallow 15m water where divers can revel in the many anemones and clown fish. Two-Mile Reef is a famous dive site also great for snorkelers where divers can go as deep as 21m to find their treasure of the day. Try Brindle Bass Ridge to view these huge fish, Angelfish, Rubberlips, Snappers and Reef sharks in huge numbers. Turtles can be found at Turtle Ridge, funnily enough, and colourful corals at Rainbow Runner Reef!
Indigo Bay scuba and dive courses introduce the best divers to something new and different. Whatever your pleasure as a diver, you can be sure to find something that you will never forget in these clear blue seas around the breath-taking beauty of Bazaruto Island in Mozambique, one of Africa’s best dive destinations.
While at Indigo Bay, be sure to make the most of the five star facilities and luxury beach and ocean view villas! Constructed from reeds, natural soft thatch and wood, the lodge blends into its natural surrounds yet the amenities are opulent and indulgent.
The rooms are gorgeous, hidden away under thatch roofs with air-conditioning, mini bars, plunge pools, tea and coffee making facilities, and a private veranda outside. A swim at sunrise is a must if you can drag yourself away from the king size bed and soft cotton linens!
