Azura Retreats offers you the ocean safari, from excellent diving sites, fun water activities, and whale-watching, to fishing for local species, educational guided marine walks, where crowds of ghost crabs scuttle by, and incredible turtle sightings, our 5-star Mozambican destinations will help you create unforgettable memories. If you are interested in learning to dive, contact our dive instructors. We highly recommend that you complete the theory portion of your course at home, before your holiday. That way, you’re ready to start diving as soon as you arrive and will get to spend more time exploring the waters around the island.
On your ocean safari family adventure at Azura Benguerra Island you will be given the rare opportunity to dive or snorkel in some of the most spectacular scuba diving spots in the world, allowing you to discover an underwater world that is visited by just a few lucky divers each year. Bleach-free coral reefs and the deep drop-off of the Mozambican shelf, means that you and your family will be able to dive in some of the healthiest coral reef systems in the world.
From July to October each year, the oceans surrounding Benguerra Island come alive with Humpback Whales, as they make their way to warmer waters. Take to the ocean to capture this incredible work of nature, and watch as dolphins catapult themselves out of the water, mingling with their friends and providing wonderful entertainment for onlookers.
Fantastic Game Fishing
Fishing, a wonderful activity for beginner and experienced fishermen/women alike, which is a favourite pastime at Azura Benguerra Island. The location makes it a superb spot for year-round fishing. Azura Benguerra is very well known for its Sailfish and Marlin. We adhere to a strict catch and release policy, in the interest to preserve the marine life in Mozambique.
Delight in Ocean Fresh Flavours
A day spent fishing for much sought after native fish such Yellowfin Tuna and King and Queen Mackerel, may very well become a delightful feast for dinner. Share your favourite recipe with the chef, and delight in fresh flavours and local ingredients set against the beautiful backdrop of the African sky lit up. Most people seek the ocean knowing that it holds something special for them and with Azura Retreats Ocean Safari it does, there’s no better option then to merge your safari on land with a safari of a different kind.
