Inhambane Dive Sites - Scuba Diving with Manta Rays & Whale Sharks In Mozambique
Scuba Dive with Manta Rays, Whale Sharks & Humpback Whales In Mozambique
Scuba diving in the Inhambane area of Mozambiques Manta Coast is of the best available anywhere in the world! Still largely protected and not overcrowded, the size, variety and volume of sealife on the reefs in the area is astounding.
There are few dive sites where sitings of both the magnificent Manta Ray and Whale Sharks are so frequent, not to speak of game fish of all shapes and sizes. Yet the underwater photographer's interest is often captured by the smaller exotic creatures such as Manta Shrimps, Spanish Dancers and other colorful nudibranches.
The fringing reef system just off-shore of Jangamo Bay will satisfy divers of all tastes and experience levels and is guaranteed to leave you hungry for more.
You can check out the swim-throughs at Caves, the cryptic Paperfish at Devil's Peak, go deep and marvel at the pelagics in Disneyland, or check into the salon at Hard Rock and let the cleaner shrimps do what they do best. And if macro photography is your thing, the resident Nudibranch population at Pao Rock will have you clicking away to your heart's content.
Here at Jeff's Palm Resort we are lucky enough to be within touching distance of truly world-class dive locations. Manta Reef, one of the top sites in the world is just a 20-minute boat ride away. At a depth of 24m it is the perfect spot to experience deep diving for the first time; and with 3 registered Manta Ray cleaning stations, countless schooling reef fish, moray eels of every variety and inquisitive potato groupers, your dives at Manta Reef are guaranteed to delight and the memories will stay with you forever.
In the same neighbourhood as Manta Reef, are XTC and Green Tree, two lesser visited, deeper sites that also boast 3 Manta cleaning stations giving you the chance to see yet more Manta Rays, beautiful untouched coral formations and are the perfect spots to try enriched air NITROX diving for the first time.
South of Praia de Jangamo and Guinjata Bay, is Paindane where strong currents give rise to the "Paindane Express". Drift over the reef systems looking out for the whole spectrum of megafauna including Manta Rays, Whale Sharks, Marlins and Sailfish
