Therapists are on hand to pamper you with frangipani extracts from Elemis or indigenous Cape fynbos from the Moya range, which blends chamomile, geranium, snowbush, lanyana and buchu to provide an African antidote to modern living.
Mozambique Diving - Bazaruto Island
of exciting dives can be experienced here with reef fish such as snapper and surgeon, as well as potato bass, kingfish, barracuda, manta rays and reef sharks to be seen. Above the water dolphin are frequently encountered whilst humpback whales can be sighted between August and October and whale sharks between April and July. Leatherback, loggerhead and green turtles are often seen in the water, coming ashore to lay their eggs on Bazaruto's sandy beaches. You may also be lucky enough to see a rare dugong - part of the largest viable breeding population in the western Indian Ocean.
An on-site diving instructor co-ordinates the diving courses, from beginner courses to more advanced reef diving, and plans every diving trip taking care of all the details, from safety precautions to the final dive entry. We use PADI Instructors and Dive Masters as a minimum standard and we do not conduct technical or deep-water dives that warrant a chamber.
Sport Fishing - Mozambique, Bazaruto Island
The Bazaruto Archipelago offers some of the most spectacular fishing in the world. Unspoilt and little explored, the Indian Ocean here with its deep Mozambique Channel harbours some of the world's most exciting game fish - species such as Kingfish, Queenfish, Barracuda, Mackerel and Yellowfin Tuna. Recreational and specialist fishermen are increasingly attracted to the Bazaruto Archipelago to try their hand at luring legendary species such as Giant Black Marlin, Sailfish or Wahoo. Even novice anglers are sure to be delighted with a catch!
Extending six miles out to sea, the Bazaruto Archipelago has been a National Park since 1971. Most fish species occur inside the reserve boundaries and a strong marine conservation policy of tag and release is ensuring the sustainable use of the resource. The Archipelago is known as Africa's most productive area for Black, Blue and Striped Marlin and has produced Black Marlin in excess of 1000 pounds. Apart from Black Marlin in the summer months (October to March), there is a strong winter run of Sailfish (July to December) and a great variety of offshore species such as big Wahoo, Dorado, King Mackerel, Giant Trevally and Tuna. A diversity of inshore species on the leeward side of the islands means that Bazaruto is also an ideal destination for light-tackle and fly fishermen.
Indigo Bay offers a high quality Mozambique sport-fishing operation so that guests can experience the thrill of fighting one of the giants of the deep or reeling in a variety of game fish. The operation has a strong tag and release policy and to date we have achieved an almost 100% release rate on all sailfish and marlin caught by guests. Indigo Bay supports the Durban's Oceanographic Research Institute's tagging programme and in 2002 they won the prize for the most tagged fish out of all commercial charter operations along the southern African east coast.
Guests wishing to marvel at the marine life without having to put a tank on their back can go snorkeling amongst stunning tropical reefs featuring a diversity of exotic marine life. All equipment is provided and guests can choose between guided or unguided snorkeling.
Mozambique Water Sports
Indigo Bay is stocked with a full range of water sport equipment. Guests looking for action can water-ski in the calm waters off the central beach or opt for fun variants thereof (such as wake-snakes, wake-boards, knee-boards and doughnuts). A range of non-motorised water sports, such as kayaking, windsurfing and Hobiecat sailing, is also on offer and we ensure that our equipment is up-to-date and well-maintained.
