We are fortunate to have 12-20m deep Manta clearing stations approx five kilometers distance from the launching area. We have amazing encounters with both species of mantas – manta birostris and manta alfredo there. However, macro enthusiasts should have their cameras ready too for taking photos of up to 200 species of nudibranchs, crabs, moray eels, Crayfish, frog fish to name some.
The deep reef system, that is around 9-11 kilometers off shore, consists of a large plateau ranging from 27 – 34 meters with sandy bottom and multiple unspoiled soft coral gardens and deep cleaning stations. Abundance of pelagic fish, large schools of yellow fin tuna, trevallies, barracudas, all kind or rays and sharks, and huge brindle bases are common to see here. And of course, lots of nudibranchs and Spanish dancers.
Zavora has two wrecks – one lying in 53m for technical divers (the Klipfontein) and another, (Rio Sainas) in 32m for recreational divers. At Zavora Divers we offer both technical and recreational diving.
On all dive one may see octopuses, mantis shrimps, scorpion fish, moray eels, crayfish (some of them really huge), and many turtles. We are lucky to regularly dive with loggerhead, green and hawksbill turtles. Time to time we see a huge endangered leatherback turtle. Divers should keep an eye also on sharks that are common in our waters. White tip reef shark, Zambezi shark, Hammerheads, Bow mouth guitar shark and Whale shark may be seen here.
