Vamizi Island, an island in the Indian Ocean waters of Mozambique, with 15 extraordinary dive sites, is offering a package for divers that offers beginners, intermediate and advanced divers eight fully-guided dives with a seven-night stay throughout 2013.
Rates start at $4,190 per person and go up to $5,870 per person, depending on the time of year.
The package includes seven nights’ accommodations in an ocean-facing villa; all meals; soft drinks, local beer, wine, basic spirits and bottled water; daily laundry service; and guided activities including shore-based snorkeling, sea kayaking, birding, walking trails, beach picnics, dhow sailing and Hobie Cat sailing.
Opened in 2005 and located in Mozambique’s Quirimbas Archipelago, the lodge is known for its diversified dives, especially Neptune’s Arm, voted one of the world’s top 10 dive sites.
Many diving experts have deemed it the best dive they have ever experienced.
A short boat ride from the lodge, this underwater island envelops spectacular scenery with a canyon plunging more than 200 meters deep with steep cliffs and filled with colorful marine life.
Vamizi is located in Mozambique’s Quirimbas Archipelago and is only seven and a half miles long by about a mile wide. Vamizi Island Resort is the only resort on the island, a conservation project in partnership with WWF and funded through carefully considered low-impact, high-end tourism. Each of the 13 one- and two-bedroom villas was constructed of local building materials and by the local community to blend into the landscape. The island has one of the longest turtle conservation operations in East Africa and fishing is sustainable.
