Scuba diving at it’s best

Ibo Island diving spots offer shallow sites for the casual diver and dramatic drops for the more serious. Wild underwater landscapes, rainbow marine fish, and gentle warm currents, all make scuba diving a world in its own right.

The best diving on Ibo is at the light house. It’s a long wall that covers an area of 1 square km. Starting at 10 m of depth you have both large gardens of coral tables, soft corals, bucket corals, green tree corals and the wall side that goes down to a coral bottom at 21m were you can see a good range of tropical fish.

Other sites that can be easily accessed from Ibo are the southern tip of Matemo where dolphins, turtles, and bright neon fish sit in the oceanic traffic with you. Just off the sandbank beach is the wreck of an old coal steamer vessel. Because of the usually crystal clear waters, you can still see scattered pieces of coal, once on the ship over 100 years ago. This is also a great snorkelling site.

The Quirimbas is a combination of diverse marine life, untouched coral reefs and tropical ocean currents. We don’t mind if you are a novice or accomplished, we just want to show you our sweetlips and angelfish, our dolphins and turtles, not to mention the hump backed whales which you could view in season (July to September).

Hi Fiona and Kevin

We returned on Saturday from our wonderful week at the Lodge. We will give some formal feedback and we have posted something on Tripadvisor but I just wanted to thank you personally for ensuring that our wedding anniversary celebration was such a memorable occasion. The special touches of some champagne and cake in addition to the other great meals were much appreciated and your well-trained staff all went out of their way to take good care of us all of the time. It was exactly the experience we were hoping to have.

We also want to commend you on what you have done for the island in general. I trust that it is appreciated and that you are given appropriate recognition for the difference you have made to people’s lives there; but even if it is not always fully acknowledged, I hope that it gives you a lot of satisfaction after the immense effort you must have put in to turn the Lodge into what it is today.

 

Congratulations and best wishes
