Amazon Reef

Amazon Reef is simply spectacular, do not miss it when you plan your dive trip to Mozambique! The dive is definitely worth the long boat trip to the site... It is shaped like a horseshoe, with a maximum depth on the sand at 28 meters, and the top of the reef around 22 meters. Ideal site to spot white-tipped reef sharks and leopard sharks; some green turtles frolic around the reef and rumour has it that a big loggerhead turtle lives in the area! At the edge of the site, look out for schools of barracudas, stingrays, and if you're lucky enough, devil and manta rays! All the other traditionnal reef fish are here, in number, along with their predators: the trevallies, and the yellow fin and dogtooth tunas. The underwater photographers will be pleased to know that the nudibranch population is thriving! A show you won't forget!
