MANTA REEF
Manta Reef Max Depth: 26m Max Journey Time from Tofo: 35 minutes Fast becoming world famous, Manta Reef is probably one of the best dive sites in Africa. The reef offers a huge diversity of marine life including numerous giant mantas (up to 6m in width) which give the reef its name. The reef has north and south walls with adjacent pinnacles of rocks creating gullies at depths of 24m to 28m. The top of the reef is quite flat with beautiful soft corals. The walls provide shelter for large schools of yellow snapper, barracuda, bigeyes, fusiliers, hundreds of bright blue red-tooth trigger fish, tiny goldies, fairy basslets and so on. Large potato and other groupers inhabit overhangs and small caverns, along with large trumpet fish, green turtles and sweetlips. The list of stunning marine life is endless. The cracks and crevices are home to scorpion fish, morays (giant, honeycomb, geometric, yellow-edge, white mouth….), crocodile fish, Spanish dancers and a whole array of nudibranches and cowries. There are three main cleaning stations where the huge manta rays circle and hover to allow small fish to remove parasites from their bodies. Playful devil rays and sometimes eagle rays swim above the reef and on occasion its possible to see white tip reef sharks and other rays. Bottom time on air – 29 mins Bottom time on EANX32% - 40 mins

GALLERIA
Galleria Max Depth: 30m Max Journey Time from Tofo: 10 minutes Galleria is a long wall where currents sometimes create an exciting drift dive. The bottom of the wall is at 30-35m and the top of the reef is between 26-28m. Giant mantas can also be seen on this site, cruising along the wall which provides shelter for various rays, shoals of red-tooth trigger fish, goldies, lobster, scorpion fish and so on. Large potato groupers come in very close to inspect divers. Fragile green tree corals hide all kinds of morays from large honeycomb to small geometric and white-mouth. The wall provides perfect cover for large, rarely seen frog-fish. Devil rays and sometimes small reef sharks can also be seen. Bottom time on air – 19 mins Bottom time on EANX32% - 30 mins

OASIS
The Oasis Max Depth: 24m Max Journey Time from Tofo: 30 minutes The Oasis is another stunning reef at around 24m with numerous overhangs and shallow caverns and excellent hard and soft corals. There are two main cleaning stations here that attract the large mantas, and it is often possible to see zebra sharks resting on the sandy bottom. Also in residence are white tip, black tip and silver tip reef sharks. Other large rays such as devil rays, blotched fantail rays and Jenkins whiprays are common. Large giant and honeycomb morays curl up in crevices. Potato groupers are curious enough to get very close to divers. On closer inspection, the corals offer hiding places for spiney lobster, egg cowries, Spanish dancers and large scorpion fish. Shoals of bigeyes, yellow snapper, goldies and sometimes barracuda drift over the reef. Bottom time on air – 29 mins Bottom time on EANX32% 50mins

SAO SEBASTAO
This is all about wilderness and pelagic, from the surface to the bottom... but not only. On the surface we are very often welcomed by big schools of dolphins (spinner, bottle nosed or humpback), whale sharks and, from June to October, humpback whales. The reefs, all submerged, are incredibly rich in terms of corals and reef life. When you're tired of looking at the mantas being cleaned, look around and you'll find nudibranchs, shrimps and crabs, garden eels and schools of fusiliers. On Cabo Sao Sebastian currents can be strong. The sites are accessible only at certain tidal conditions and with good weather. This is one of the reasons the reefs are still in such pristine condition. You'll rarely bump into any other group of divers than yours there. Enjoy!

TWO-MILE REEF
The corals here are beautiful, very varied and in pristine condition. The reef hosts an incredible variety of reef fish and is home to devil rays, sharpnose stingrays, reef sharks. It is not rare to bump into 5 or 6 massive turtles during the same dive. Two Mile Reef is a very wide reef that allows very different dives depending on where we're jumping and, being quite shallow (max depth is 20m), it easily allows for 60 minute dives.

FIVE MILE REEF
If you've ever wanted to feel like you're diving in a submerged city, this is the place to explore. You'll dive around magnificent coral formations and through an amazing rocky structure, exploring caves and swimthroughs where you might bump into a sleepy turtle, crocodile fish, scorpion fish and the most amazing nudibranchs.

THE CHANNEL
A very different dive where you'll have the impression you're on the Bazaruto Dunes but underwater. The landscape is amazing. Here you have a good chance of encountering big sharks cruising in the channel or rays. The currents can be very strong though. This dive is only for experienced divers.
