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. 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 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.
In addition to diving, we run Ocean Safari’s. Our boats often encounter whale sharks, manta rays, turtles, dolphins, and from June to November we have the incredible Humpback whale Migration.
We have whale season from June to October. This is when the humpback whales swim north to give birth. During these months we have seen up to 100 whales in a day including the calves. When diving we often hear them singing on a dive and we do have some encounters which is amazing. We can take people out on an ocean safari to see the whales and often we do see them breaching. So come have a Whale of a time at Zavora.
