We had a wonderful trip to Mozambique and the diving with Andrew and Marlene of Dive Bazaruto was great. The San Sebastian area was something I had read about before but never the chance to dive. The area can be exposed but if timed right will offer some unparalleled diving. The deeper sights have no lack of sea life and... More

We called in beforehand to inquire about the different dive sites and types of dives available and Andrew the owner (also a dive instructor) was more than happy to explain and answer my questions in detail. He was extremely patient and honest in answering my questions on... More

We had a two dive trip to Two Mile Reef with Andrew, Sebastian and Mario. Two great dives, Andrew was knowledgable, friendly and a very calm dive leader. Fantastic fish, coral and underwater landscape. All the equipment was in very good condition. We had also done a refresher session with Marlene two days before: we are previously experienced divers but... More

A huge thank you to Andrew and Marlene for all their help and advice on our recent visit to the Archipelago resort. Your service was very accommodating and super helpful in deciding best times and best places to visit during our stay.

This was our third operator. A month ago, the first operator suddenly said they have no time for my daughter and sent us to a second operator. This second one said that we did not have to book, just contact them when we arrive. When we arrived, they said they had no time for my daughter (....) and sent us... More
