Scubaaddicts Dive Centre And Lodge

Hotel Overview

ScubaAddicts vision is to deliver first class scuba diving adventures for qualified divers. The owners Craig and Shona, along with the dive team, will be your hosts and guides for the duration of your stay. They have been arranging scuba diving holidays in South Africa and Mozambique since 2002 so their extensive knowledge of shark diving will ensure you have the best experience possible, alongside this they create a very welcoming atmosphere for all their guests through their warm and inclusive hospitality - although Craig's dry sense of humour may take a day or two to understand!!

ScubaAddicts Dive Centre and Lodge is based in Ponta do Ouro a small town in the extreme south of Mozambique approximately two hours from Maputo and just north of the border of South Africa. The Lodge has eight rooms that can be set up as singles, double, twin or triples, each boasts incredible views and has air conditioning and en-suite facilities. The rooms are serviced daily. Resort facilities include free Wi-Fi, satellite TV and a laundry service. The restaurant and bar overlook the ocean, and the pool and chill out area have sun loungers and bean bags making it the perfect place to relax and reflect on your days diving.

The onsite dive centre means that you can roll out of bed and start diving with no local transfers to worry about. ScubaAddicts Dive Resort is centrally situated on Ponta Do Ouro and is within strolling distance of the small town and lively market. The area is known for its lovely white sand beaches, beautiful dense dune forest, warm azure ocean, and of course the spectacular scuba diving. For those looking for an experience of a lifetime we offer combination tours to include diving in both Mozambique and South Africa along with a Big-5 Safari. This 3-night safari gives you the chance to experience Africa's wildlife. You will enjoy 2 days on Open Vehicle Safari in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Reserve and a Hippo and Crocodile River Cruise in St Lucia, South Africa.

Diving Information

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.
