MOZAMBIQUE YACHT CHARTERS

Mozambique yacht charters operate among the 37 islands of the Quirimbas and Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique, east Africa. Yacht charter offered are diving and fishing, as well as general island cruising yacht charters and sailing holidays.

These are private charters where you charter the whole boat for your group of friends or family with a skipper, deck hands and chef on board to cater for your every need. All the yachts are professionally crewed and fully licensed with all the required certification.
All yachts are chartered on a whole yacht basis and can accommodate from 1 to 8 guests depending on the yacht

Experience the pleasure of a yacht charter adventure at its best. Spend time aboard well equipped, purpose-build charter Catamarans. Dive, Snorkel, Cruise, Fly Fish, Fish or explore the warm clear waters surrounding selected Indian Ocean Islands.

Charter yachts in African waters are all owned by private individuals and operated for the purpose of offering yacht charters holidays; and as such not all our yachts are identical. Yacht Charters in the African region are very different to the rest of the world. There are no mariners here with a dozen identical yachts waiting to be chartered.

Yacht and island resort combo in the Quirimbas and Bazaruto

The options for combining a yacht charter and spending a few days at one of the many island lodges are numerous. These options are ideal for clients who want to experience both a yacht cruise and the luxury island lodges, or those who prefer the idea of an island based holiday but would like to taste the island hopping cruising experience.

You can easily combine any one of our yachts with islands and lodges in Bazaruto, Quirimbas or the Zanzibar regions.

You will have the chance to cruise and explore the islands and then the yacht will drop you off on the beach of your chosen islands lodge or resort.

There is a minimum of 4 nights required when charting a yacht, and an ideal combination would be:
 
5 nights yacht & 2 nights lodge
or
7nights yacht & 3 nights lodge

...but the choice is yours!

We offer a range of unique yacht or island / land based fishing holidays that can combine fishing, safaris, watersports, cruising, sailing, island hoping, exploration and cultural interaction and discovery in areas where you won’t be sharing the water with hundreds of other yachts or fishermen.

In Africa you will have her ocean and islands virtually to yourself! For people looking for a fishing based holiday with a difference, this is it!
The world is starting to realize that Africa, from the coral reefs of the Indian Ocean and the kelp forests of the Atlantic to the mighty rivers and lakes of its interior are some of the richest, most biologically diverse environments on earth and offer some of the greatest, untouched and exciting fishing in the world.
There is no destination, no matter how hard you look that can compare with Africa

Scuba Dive Charters

"It seems only fitting that just as terrestrial Africa with its lions and elephants, rhino and zebras has come to hold an iconic allure, this underwater Africa should also be seen in a similar vein: the Serengeti of the Seas"  (National Geographic)

Africa, until now has primarily been marketed as a land-based safari destination. Its oceans and marine environments have virtually been ignored and there is little awareness of Africa and its Indian Ocean Islands as a dive destination among the world’s general dive community.
But things are starting to change! The world is starting to realize that the African coast, from the coral reefs of the Indian Ocean to the kelp forests of the Atlantic is one of the richest, most biologically diverse marine environments on earth.

Infact in the most recent edition of the Dive Atlas of the World: An Illustrated Reference to the Worlds Best Sites written by Jack Jackson destinations that were included were Cape Town and diving with the Great White Sharks along with South Africa's Aliwal Shoal, Protea Banks and Sodwana Bay. In Mozambique Ponta do Ouro, Bazaruto Archipelago and Inhambane as well as Tanzania's Mafia, Zanzibar and Pemba Islands were included.
