Diving Grande Comore and the Comoros Islands

The isolated and little known archipelago of the Comoros, is a small yet authentic treasure in the midst of the Indian Ocean. With very few travel agencies, only a few tour guides and no direct flights from Europe or the United States, the Comoros are a spectacular adventure for the explorer at heart!

The Comoros were once governed by Arab sultans, Asia and Africa before being colonised by the French. The Comorian people are without a doubt a very multi cultural nation. The archipelgao is made up of 4 main islands, each completely different from the other.

Mayotte, which is the 101st French district, was the only island not to have voted for independence and is almost entirely surrounded by a lagoon, much like a natural aquarium. Anjouan island, nicknamed ‘perfume island’ because of its wide variety of different cultures. Molehill is home to one of the most beautiful underwater dive sites in the Indian Ocean and is protected by a Marine Park that was established in 2001. At last but not least, Grande Comore which is the largest and most developed of the four islands.

Grande Comore, also known as Volcano Island is dominated by the active; volcano Mount Karthala. Its crater is amongst one of the largest in the world and it attracts hikers and nature lovers from all over. Despite its questionable roads, it is highly recommended to rent a car or organise a private driver in order to discover the ruins of the ancient and famous mosque of Wana Mdji, home to magnificent tombs decorated with wood and chinese porcelain. Head to the bustling city of Medina or to Mitsamihouli and wander its mangnificent white sandy beaches, black sand or pebble beaches!

When it comes to diving, Grand Comore is a special place and rarely frequented. Isolated, without a fisherman, ship or even a fly in sight. Your own private dive site, as in a dream. With warm, clear water with almost no current, you’ll swim along side dolphins in Itsandra, explore the Nassiwa wreck and dive alongside prehistoric marine species or rare ones such as the coelacanth, sea turtles and the very impressive and peculiar looking dugong.
