AZURA QUILALEA DIVE PACKAGE

Back
 

Explore the stunning azure waters of Mozambique on this 7-day dive package to Azura Quilalea. Azura at Quilalea is a hidden gem, with a relaxed and understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway style that belies the comforts and experiences on offer in stunning seafront villas.  The house reef is perfect for a refresher or first time dive and a unique location for a night dive for qualified divers. In addition to this reef, there are another 17 dive sites one can visit that include some fantastic drop offs and coral gardens located both inside and outside of the Quirimbas Archipelago Marine Sanctuary. You will see a plethora of marine life: green and hawksbill turtles, humpback whales (seasonal), reef sharks, stingrays, devil rays, moray eels, dolphin, grouper, as well as a variety of reef fish such as surgeons, puffers, moorish idols, parrot fish, clown fish, trigger fish and chocolate dip fish. Hard and soft corals are in abundance, with nudibranchs for those who like to spot the smaller stuff.
