Diving with Dive Bazaruto is a great experience. They are very concerned about safety and has a lot of knowledge about the area. Logistics are smooth, despite reefs being located pretty far. Andrew took us on two very nice dives - a pleasure to explore these reefs with him! Nice atmosphere and you are for sure well taken care of.

Dive was very well organised Equipment in excellent condition and divers were kitted out quickly and efficiently Andrew was very calm and thorough in instructing divers and very safety conscious Saw lots of marine life at 2 Mile Reef.

This is the first time we took the kids with (Ages 9 + 12) and Andrew and his team went above and beyond to accommodate. The water sports were such fun!!

Andrew is a prime divemaster with great knowledge of Bazaruto Archipelago. Takes you to the best divespots in a secure way and enhances your diving with knowledge of the area and animals residing there.

The owner Andrew is a money hungry shark. The trip to Margerutte island was charged at $100. Per person excluding park fees meals and beverages . Other local operators charge around $60 for the same trip includes park fees meals and beverages. He also charged $50 for a 15 minutes boat ride to town. Please ask Pricilla at Archipelago for...

This review is not only rude, dishonest and as far as from the truth as possible. Firstly we do not organise trips and charge per person, we charter private boats. Smallest for four adults charged at $250, because you were only two we even gave you $50 discount. Again we do not offer trips to town. I was busy taking... More

We had a wonderful trip to Mozambique and the diving with Andrew and Marlene of Dive Bazaruto was great. The San Sebastian area was something I had read about before but never the chance to dive. The area can be exposed but if timed right will offer some unparalleled diving. The deeper sights have no lack of sea life and... More
