Dive the Quirimbas with Dive Quirimba’s – explore the ocean floor and extraordinary coral reefs with experienced dive masters or swim with the dolphins – an unforgettable experience.

Did you know that when you swim with the dolphins, you can heal your heart? You start to feel a deep sense of completion and realisation within. Dolphin encounters in the Quirimbas Archipelago are increasingly appreciated by visitors from far and wide who come to these remote islands to get away from it all. Your professional guide will take you through the steps to get close to dolphins as they cavort in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

You will find peace of mind, a complete sense of relaxation and just being in the moment when you swim with dolphins. Every dolphin encounter is unique, some longer than others. Dolphins love to play, but sometimes they would rather be feeding and move on, away from the human swimmers.

At Dive Quirimbas, the crew briefs you first about boat safety, marine life and responsible interactions with these marine creatures. Ibo Island Lodge uses the regulated Swim Code of Conduct to dive with dolphins – specifically created to ensure a sustainable eco-friendly approach.

There are other islands and lodges who offer visitors an opportunity to encounter dolphins almost cheek to cheek in the Quirimbas. You will see them as part of your dive excursion on Matemo Island and Pemba Dive and Bush Camp on the mainland also offers wonderful snorkelling trips with the four species of dolphins which cruise this Mozambique coast.
