Dugong Spotting on the Mozambican Coast

Rendezvous with dugong as they feed on sea grass in the shallows. Come face to face with the animals that led to the legend of mermaids.

Regularly sighted in the Bazaruto and Quirimbas archipelagos, these shy yet affable creatures are increasingly rare. Mozambique’s islands host what could be the last sustainable populations in East Africa, making the experience all the more poignant.

You will explore with a private guide who has spent his life studying dugongs. It’s an unpredictable day as you may have to travel relatively large distances in the boat. But you will see dugongs and they are remarkable.
