Ponta Do Ouro, Southern Mozambique boasts incredible biodiversity both on land and in the ocean. Here you have the chance to view and interact with extraordinary marine animals, such as our resident bottlenose dolphins. When they are social these dolphins willfully choose to interact with us and will leave you with a moment in time that you’ll find hard to forget. Other dolphin species we encounter are the very rare, endangered Indo-pacific Humpback dolphin and the pelagic (open ocean) Spinner dolphin. Dolphin swims occur all year round.
Then the summer months (Dec – May) yield a chance to snorkel with migratory species of whale sharks and on the odd occasion manta rays. During the winter months (July – Nov) we are awed with incredible sightings and surface displays from Humpback Whales who travel thousands of kilometers from the cold arctic waters to give birth to their young in the warm waters of the Mozambique Channel.
The chance of these unique sightings draw marine enthusiasts from around the world, and we take pride in sharing the wonders of this beautiful stretch of coastline with our guests through informative educational briefings and a general love of our oceans. We hope you enjoy the info we’ve put together on these marine animals, and look forward to taking you to see them!
