Whale Sharks and Manta Rays dreams

15-28th Jan 2005

This trip is ideal for the experienced diver who has the spirit of adventure with a heart felt desire and passion to swim and dive with big animals.

Our base will be Tofu, a small coastal village about 20 mins drive from Inhambane airport. All the diving will be done from an 8-metre RIB, which we will all help launch from the shore. A moderate level of agility is required to hoist onself into the boat and the ride over the surf zone can be bumpy. Once through the waves and out into the open ocean our search begins and we will travel to one of the 9 main dive sites. The morning dives will usually be a 2-tank dive, on air, using the surface interval time between the dives to eat lunch and cruise the channel looking for Whale Sharks on the surface. After returning to shore we will have a single tank dive in the afternoon.

The water temperature is usually 24-28° C so a 5 mm wet suit is recommended. Visibility will be between 10 to 15 metres as the water is nutrient rich, and consequently the Whale Sharks and Manta Rays are here. Our aim is to have as many long lasting encounters and dives with Whale Sharks and Manta Rays as possible so we have structured the trip to have a degree of flexibility, and we will the local knowledge of our excellent guides to give us the best change of fulfilling our aim. This Big Fish Extravaganza offers you the chance to experience the ultimate in diving with these extraordinary animals!

Cuba Bull Sharks, wrecks and salsa

11 - 26 November 2006 with Gavin Parsons

This will be a full 2 weeks all inclusive trip and should be very good value at around £1800 with some great wrecks, good reefs and Bull Sharks. The trip will tour the entire island and includes a lot of travel but also 2 dives per day and optional night diving at additional cost on most days.
