New to snorkeling or you need a refresher? Discover the magic of the underwater world in calm, sheltered waters.

Snorkeling under the Pontáo is perfect for beginners and children. The conditions are excellent with steps to get in and out of the sea, a huge diversity of marine life concentrated in a very small area and even a small wreck site.


Your guide is Samira - a vivacious and knowlegeable, young woman who is local to Ilha. Samira trained with CAIRIM (Centre for Underwater Archaeology Ilha de Moçambique) to gain her open water diving licence and also guides on Ilha Blue tours.

'Learn to Snorkel' Short Courses are also available.

Snorkeling with Samira was a highlight of our holiday.


She was very engaging and friendly, easily switching between English and Portuguese as needed.


Kids can sometimes be challenging but Samira provided the right combination of support, supervision, encouragement and fun to make it a great outing for everyone.


We loved being able to experience the ocean around Ilha in this way and will be back again one day.”
