What to see

The Agulhas Current passes through the coast off Inhambane and Tofo and this brings about plankton rich waters. As such, whale shark and manta ray sightings are almost guaranteed here and you might even spot the great oceanic manta rays which come by to feed and clean. Cleaning stations are filled with lyretail anthias, cleaner wrasse and butterflyfish. Migrating whales also travel along the Agulhas Current which is why there are chances to see the likes of humpback whales off the coast from June to November.

At the outer reefs, sharks are quite plentiful with whitetip sharks, blacktip sharks, leopard sharks and if you are lucky, hammerhead sharks. Besides that, consider it a lifetime opportunity if you manage to dive with a dugong but otherwise the reefs and walls have plenty to offer. These include great personalities of the humphead wrasse, giant grouper and potato cod. There are also green sea turtles and the rare loggerhead sea turtles. Smaller critters like moray eels, seahorses, garden eels, and scorpionfish are also a delight to find.
