Activities at Quilálea Island Resort
Diving - Quilálea Island Resort
Quilálea offers a full range of superb Mozambique diving experiences, providing some of the best scuba diving in the entire Quirimbas archipelago just 20 metres offshore. The marine pavilion, which looks west over the Quilálea Channel, is a fully equipped PADI dive centre.

A reef just off the beach provides sheltered diving and snorkelling for the beginner. More experienced divers will want to explore the big walls of the Montepuez channel on the southern edge of the sanctuary. Caves and currents combine to create an underwater paradise, inhabited by reef and pelagic fish of every size and description. The most adventurous will head for the Saint Lazarus Bank, recognised as having the best unexplored diving in the world.

The dive boat used started life as a traditional Portuguese fishing vessel and has been remodelled. The wide afterdeck allows freedom of movement for whale watching or exploration of the bay. Mares diving equipment is maintained in top condition for use by guests and staff.

Mozambique diving offers up to 30-metre visibility and water temperatures around a balmy 28 degrees Celsius you can expect to see all coral reef species typical of the Indian Ocean region as well as game fish - yellow fin tuna, dogtooth tuna and marlin. There are also manta rays, eight species of shark (to date), whale sharks, huge schools of feeding barracuda, many species of king fish, red snappers, green and hawksbill turtles, pods of humpback dolphins, not to mention the humpbacked whales in season.

Fishing - Quilalea Island Resort
Although Quilálea forms part of a marine sanctuary, sport fishing and deep-sea angling are offered outside the protected sanctuary. The experienced skipper and crew know all the hot spots, so novice and veteran anglers alike can enjoy Mozambique's unspoilt fishing waters.

A 30- foot Bertrams Express, powered by twin Volvo Penta diesel inboards, is available for use by big game fishermen. This vessel cruises comfortably at 18-20 knots. A local dhow is also available for those who prefer to cruise in silence and serenity.

The wide variety of game fish species can be taken from the complex of habitats formed by the Quirimba Archipelago itself, while the Saint Lazarus Bank due east of Quilálea is a hotspot for tuna and billfish. Both the Archipelago and the Bank have yet to be discovered by big game fishermen.

The deep drop-off immediately to the east of the Quirimbas Archipelago guarantees a unique sports fishing experience. The Southern current passes near the coast here and billfish can be taken within shouting distance of shore; local fishermen sometimes catch them on hand lines trolled behind dugout canoes.

The rods and reels available for use by guests are all Shimano, with lines ranging from 20 to 80 lbs. Six lines can be trawled from the Bertram's.

Sailing - Quilalea Island Resort
Enjoy a magical sunset in a spectactular setting aboard our traditional sailing vessel or dhow, the “Doña Fatima”.
Sail the Indian Ocean waters around the island of Quilálea and experience the beauty and tranquillity of these historical vessels and the time-honoured method in which they are sailed. Cold beverages of your choice and light refreshments will be served while you enjoy the magnificent sunset.
