After a few hours driving south from Maputo on a red-dust road, passing through the bush and sand dunes, you'll reach Ponta do Ouro. Located at the frontier of South Africa, Ponta do Ouro has sandy roads and relaxed cafés that give it a very chilled beach town vibe. Surfers come from everywhere to ride the waves off the beautiful bay, while divers choose to explore the underwater world. Bull sharks are often encountered; in season, humpback whales can be seen, and the macro life is very rich. In the afternoon, try the classic Portuguese pie, "pasteis de nata", from the local bakery - they are delicious!
The dive center is contributing to conservation by conducting two research projects, one on Nudibranchs and one on Humpback whales.
For beginners and advanced divers who love sharks and macro life! For adventurous spirits who enjoy a laid-back atmosphere. Non-diving partners will have plenty to do: walks on the beach, restaurants with a view, quad explorations, snorkeling, surfing, and why not a safari before or after in Kruger National Park in South Africa.
Shark dives are without bait, and can be done in season from November to April. Contact us for more dives if you wish to do a Discover Scuba Diving course or a specialty.
Prices are per person for 5 reef dives and 5 shark dives
