Snorkeling and diving 
The Indian Ocean, with its warm and colourful waters, is truly a paradise and an ideal location for many sea activities. The surface hides an ecosystem of exceptional beauty: a still intact coral reef overflowing with life. The seabed reaches 50 meters maximum depth and consists of corals - including the famous coral column - combs, Georgian coral and sponges. You will be surrounded by a multitude of colorful fish and sometimes turtles and dolphins.
Scuba diving activities from beaches and islands are organized in collaboration with a local tourism association.

Fishing: the Indian Ocean hosts many varieties of fish as Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado, Wahoo, Yellow Fin Tuna, King Fish and Barracuda. Fishing lovers cannot miss to participate to expeditions with local fishermen on the traditional dhows or on sailing boats. We can provide you with fishing equipment, life jackets and a skipper. Fishing trips are organized with the collaboration of other resorts.
