This fully guided adventure offers diving enthusiasts plenty of memorable shark encounters at Aliwal Shoal as well as the opportunity to discover the incredible diversity of Ponta do Ouro in Mozambique.

This diving adventure begins at Aliwal Shoal, famed for its shark encounters. Expect ragged tooth, oceanic black-tip, bull, hammerhead, guitar and tiger sharks, which all frequent the area (some seasonal). Continue north to Mozambique where diving is still relatively new to international visitors. Dive the reefs around Ponta do Ouro where you can expect encounters with tiger, bull and hammerhead sharks. 

There is an abundance of marine life along the coast and the focus is on sharks, however you can expect to see a huge variety of other species including humpback whales (seasonal), dolphin, turtles, manta rays, devil rays, eagle rays, eels, game fish and plenty of reef fish.
