In addition to the numerous resident pods of dolphins found off our coast, one also has a very good chance of seeing turtles, whale sharks, and whales. The coast of Mozambique is famous for the annual whale migration which takes place during the winter months (May – October). During this period, clients are assured of seeing these magnificent creatures close inshore as they blow, tail slap, and spectacularly leap out of the water.A Padi five-star dive centre operates from Ponta Beach Camps offering both dive charters and Scuba training. There is also a comprehensive range of Scuba Equipment for rental at competitive prices. They have been operating in Southern Mozambique for over 22 years, and are the official MARES Diving Centre for Southern Mozambique. Great emphasis is placed on safety, education, conservation awareness, and responsible, non invasive interaction with the marine environment. Mozambique is one of the few places in the world that offers wild dolphin encounters. Boat trips are undertaken daily to see these amazing animals, and whatever other of the varied marine life one usually encounters whilst at sea. As with our dive charters, on all these trips emphasis is placed on safety, conservation, education, and responsible, non invasive interaction with all marine life encountered.
