We were extremely lucky to have chosen Odysea dive in September.
Before leaving for Mozambique we were in touch with Denis and Sabrina who were very quick to respond to all my questions and help in arranging the best possible diving to suit us.
When we arrived, the arrangements were made very clear to us and we were to be picked up on the beach in front of where we were staying. We were picked up right on the button and headed out to the outlying islands for the briefing on the brand new and very well-maintained RIB. We stopped for the briefing before getting kitted up and my confidence continued to rise. Having experienced these briefings in schools in Thailand, Southern Africa, India, Australia and Egypt- The briefing was simply the most professional and clear i have ever experienced (thanks Hugo)- it was made very clear to everyone (group of 4 divers) what the plan was and also what we ought to do in the event we had any issues. It gave my wife particular confidence as she was inexperienced and a little nervous.
The weather wasn’t very good in the week but Denis and Sabrina worked very hard to find us a slot to dive in the week, culminating in generously offering us the chance to go to the reef even though it was just me and my wife. The diving was superb and I would recommend viewing the various youtube videos from Denis (denisodyssea) to get a flavour of the quality (but in many cases doesn’t do it justice, the sheer volume of sea life is flabbergasting). The devil ray cleaning station was a highlight but there were countless friendly and amusing turtles and huge schools of kingfish too.
Afterwards we had a beer at the dive centre which looks like one of the best places to stay in Vilanculos, I am certain that Denis and Sabrina are brilliant hosts and their guest accommodation looks very nice indeed.
A million thanks to Denis, Sabrina and Hugo for our unforgettable experience.
