Sharkweek Mozambique with ScubaAddicts gives you the chance to get up close and personal with some of the world's greatest predators…… SHARKS!

The diving takes place on the reefs between Ponta Do Ouro, Ponta Malongane and Ponta Mamoli and offers some of the best shark diving and reef diving in Mozambique. This destination has seen, in total, 17 different shark species with the main sightings including tigers, bulls, hammerheads, silvertips, blacktips, grey reef, whitetip, leopard and even whale sharks. The reefs are also home to a huge variety of other marine life including whales, dolphin, turtles, manta, devil rays, eagle rays, ribbon tails rays, eels, game fish, and many species of reef fish.

When organising the two most important elements of your stay, the diving and the food, Craig and Shona are the perfect hosts by creating an intimate diving and dining experience for sole travellers, couples, friends, or small groups. All divers arrive on the same day so you will dive with the same group for the duration of your stay, along with the fantastic dive team who have many years of experience in the area. Full briefings on underwater behaviour take place at the onsite dive centre before getting kitted up and onto the RIB ready for your adrenaline filled launch from the beach through rolling surf!

Diving is generally carried out in the morning as windier afternoons make launches more difficult, and most are drift dives in the blue often with strong currents. There is a great selection of dive sites close by, and diving courses are not offered as the diving package is for qualified divers only. There are a maximum of 8 divers per boat plus a dive guide.

This tropical climate has sunny days and fresh evenings all year round. The dry season runs from April to late December and the summer season goes from late December to March. Summer season is hotter with higher humidity and occasional short intense showers, usually at night. Daytime temperatures vary from 22-32°C/72-90°F.

During a dive in Mozambique you have a great chance to come across huge creatures like whale sharks, manta rays, and humpback whales. Look a little closer, and you will see bountiful reef fish and unique marine life. Five of the world’s seven species of turtles frequent Mozambique, and the rich currents filter in tons of nutrients and plankton to feed this bustling ecosystem.
