INHAMBANE DIVING HOLIDAYS
Diving Holidays In Inhambane
Inhambane is a province of Mozambique and it's the gateway to southern Mozambique, with miles of unspoiled shores and turquoise and warm waters. Inhambane has several of the finest beaches in Mozambique, as well as excellent scuba diving. You can spot manta rays, turtles and various other reef fish. Chances of whale shark sightings are also particularly good in this area. This area is also one of the few in southern Mozambique where the last remaining Dugong can be seen. The most popular resorts and dive sites are around Tofo and Vilanculos.

Diving The Inhambane Peninsula
Dive sites around the Inhambane Peninsula and Tofo Beach range in depth from 10 meters to 37 meters, catering for all experience levels.
The big attraction of diving off the Inhambane Peninsula are the abundance of Manta Rays and Whale Sharks. Mozambique's summer, October to March, is the best time to see Whale Sharks, though it is possible to encounter Whale Sharks at any time. During the winter months, Europe's summer, large numbers of Humpback Whales migrate along the coastline and come very close to shore in the Tofo area, and large pods of Dolphins can be seen all year round. The reefs are teeming with other life including a huge diversity of fish species, nudibranchs, octopus, eels, turtles and much more.
The sea conditions can vary from very calm to quite choppy. Generally the visibility is between 10 and 30 metres with an average of 20 metres. The water temperature in the Indian Ocean varies from 29 to 23 C.
Summer months are October to April. Winter months are May to September. Windy months are usually February (high chance of cyclones) and August, although, again this is not always the case. When winds are strong, the sea can become rough but diving is still possible.
