My wife and I went on the booking Bazaruto Island & 2-mile reef tour. That's the best snorkeling we've ever done. Beautiful reefs and coral which you see quite clearly. Bazaruto island was amazing and the lunch delicious. We loved it so but we chose to go back the day after. My camera wasn't working, but Jeff, the manager was... More

We were lucky enough to get a calm, sunny day for our trip to the archipelago with dolphin Dhow. Junior will show you prices for different trips and I highly recommend you take in as much of the islands as possible! We had a guide and a skipper/chef all to ourselves for the day. Bottle-nose dolphins, flamingoes and an amazing... More

This could have been a great trip....we had booked on a snorkelling tour to Bazaruto with the nicest possible group of Spanish people. But..... On arrival the guy in charge (Junior) initially refused us entry as he didn't believe we'd made a booking. He was rude from the beginning. Plus he was wrong on the booking front:) It's a good...

While visiting Vilanculos, we planned to do snokkel trips to "two mile", Bazaruto and Magaruge. We make contact with Junior as soon as we arrived in Vilanculos and he was helpful in every way. We thought that he run an excellent business from beginning to end. The people who took care of us, communicated well. We knew at all time... More

When weather canceled our diving they arranged to take just my wife and I out the Bazaruto and then to snorkel the 2 mile reef. The outfit makes an amazing fresh meal right there on the island. Friendly and timely operation. Would definitely use again.

Very accommodating tour. Lunch was delicious. Enjoyed dolphins swimming and bird life. Attempted to snorkel, wish lessons were available or at least some instructions. Reef and ocean life was beautiful and would have greatly enjoyed had we been able to conquer the snorkeling.....difficult when you are a non-swimmer since the water was fairly deep. Would take the tour again. Reasonably... More

Lovely sunset cruise on a traditional dhow. Sailed along the shoreline and then had sundowners on some massive sand dunes overlooking Benguerra island.

I really enjoyed the snorkeling! Seeing the variety of fish and coral, it was beautiful. We absolutely loved the lunch that had been cooked for us on an island while we were snorkeling. It was the best food we had in Mozambique! The views we had from the island we had lunch on was stunning, sand dunes, brilliant turquoises in... More
