Hi,

We are looking for ideas on a new spearfishing and holiday location in mozambique where:

there are options to dive offshore reefs which are 2km or further into the sea, with dive-able depths (25/30m or shallower)

somewhat protected launching/beach launching area (such as a pinnacle/small bay (like guinjata, and not like hells gate at santa maria/inhaca island)

not a commercial or busy area, like barra. Can be nice and quiet, away from nearby towns or pubs.

and ofcourse, proper accomodation to rent

    If you guys have some ideas to check out - will be much appreciated

    Morrungulo Beach Lodge, bit further than you might want to go (about) 100km north of Inhambane but well worth it.

    Reef there runs for miles up the coast all the way to the Pumene reefs.

    Speerfishing is good, took some blokes out last December and they were very happy.

    Camp under trees or houses right on the beach.

    Go have a look......

    Thanks Chukudeer,

    Are there reefs lying "offshore", not next to the coast but into the sea away from land, say 2km+?

    Hi, yes, the reef starts about 8km from the launch site out to see. It then runs basically in line with the coastline for the next 30+ km.

    It is in 25-30m of water and comes up to 8-10m.

    The reef is not one solid ridge but comes and goes with several pinnicals that are slightly shallower.

    It meets up with larger reef structures about 35km NW known as Zambia reef of the Pumene point.

    But you don't need to go that far, most Cuta etc will be found off the reef around some smaller pinnicals along the southern point.

    Deeper out there are 3 points in about 80m water that come up to 20-30m. Here you will find the large crock Cuta's, Kings, Amber Jacks..... but also plenty shark.

    Pic below was a good days spearfishing by some friends....

    hi Chukudeer,
    Do you have co-ordinates of those spots?  Otherwise we will probably never find it...

    Yep, happy to share.

    Drop me a PM with your e-mail and I'll send you a file

    But you will find Silvia reef here....

    Silvia South S 23 08 444 E 035 33 715
    Silvia Mid S 23 06 782 E 035 34 334
    Silvia North S 23 05 178 E 035 34 876

    Basic points, the reef structure is much longer but those marks will put you on the reef, follow with fish finder from there on
