5 nights Dive Lazarus Banks and the Quirimbas Island

Diving St Lazarus Banks


Jump on board our brand new Maxim 400 Fly Bridge Power Catamaran for your private diving charter to St Lazarus Banks and the Quirimba’s. Your floating hotel on the ocean offers your dive group plenty of space in 3 cabins, a large main saloon, decks and trampolines.

Spend 3 nights scuba diving at Dive Quirimbas, Ibo Island Lodge’s on-site PADI dive centre. It is all about entering another universe of wild underwater landscapes where rainbow fish swim. Find diverse corals at the light house and swim along a long one kilometre wall to see mind-boggling marine wildlife.

Your 2 nights at St Lazarus Bank will stun you. This is the epitome of a live-aboard diving charter – dive the underwater mountain, about 30 kilometres long and 20 kilometres wide, then marvel at the stars at night. Become part of the game fish feeding frenzy if you book when the Mantis Shrimps are mating.
