Visit up to 7 islands, like Ibo island, situated in or close to the Quirimbas National Park (WWF). Kayak on very stable double or single sea kayaks always only a radio call away from our catamaran equipped with tender propelled by a 15hp outboard. No contest, no other sea kayak tours like ours. We live aboard our Mocotur sailing catamaran the ideal gunkholing yacht with only 90cm draught and a 5 meter beam. Once anchored we enjoy taking a single or double kayak out to the closest island or into the nearest mangroves lined river. The late afternoon is the typical time we can obtain fresh seafood from passing fishermen who go out in their little canoes to fish. We enjoy these crystal blue living coral reefed waters so much it would be a great shame not to share these unique moments of deep sensual marine environment experiences. This environment doesn't tolerate bringing masses of tourists thus we only sneak, with maximum 4 guests at a time, extremely respectfully around this marine paradise. « less

Its odd that this activity is on the Maputo page when this is a holiday package offered by Ibo Island Lodge. Kayaking in Ibo is fantastic but we found this to be a not very real "package". If we had have booked at Ibo Island lodge and went out on a Kayak we would have had the same thing. Also,... More

They use stable glassfibre kayaks that look so much better in that setting than plastic boats. You can get really inside the mangrove forests and also get to paddle around Ibo Island seeing the island from the seaside. Great way to become part of the Quirimba way of life.

I've covered a lot of this in my Ibo Island Lodge Hotel review, but since few people have reviewed this separately, I thought I would. Our trip started in the north and worked its way south, unlike the previous review, so we started at the stunning private island of Mogundula. The food was fantastic - with special meals being supplied... More

Ibo island lodge for a couple of days, then supplies loaded, off on our old Arabic dhow with the kayaks stored safely on board. Surprisingly the Kayaks were fibreglass, quite new with a rudder to steer! After 4 hours or so on the dhow we arrive at darumba island, our first stop. It's an inhabited island so lots of giggling...
