The Quirimbas Archipelago offers some of the most spectacular fishing in the world. Unspoilt and largely unexplored, the Indian Ocean here with its deep Mozambique Channel harbours some of the most exciting game fish to catch – species such as Kingfish, Queenfish, Barracuda, Dorado, Sierra, Wahoo, Sailfish and Yellowfin Tuna.
Around the Quirimbas, deep water is accessed close to the islands, which means guests do not have to travel far for possible thrilling encounters with big game fish. The island’s fishing boat, N’Jovo is a Gulf Craft 31’ Dolphin Super Deluxe, which has been especially adapted with an extended T-Top to shield guests from the tropical sun. Rani Resorts operate a tag and release policy and support the Durban Oceanographic Research Institute’s tagging programme.
The tropical waters around Medjumbe Island are one of Mozambique’s best-kept secrets. Here, in clear waters that reach more than 30°C in summer and rarely less than 25°C in winter, you will discover a marine ecosystem that is absolutely pristine. As a result, Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa offers some of the finest diving in the world with unexplored coral reefs and an astounding diversity of marine species. A dazzling array of fish from Moray Eels and Stingrays to Barracuda, Kingfish and other pelagic gamefish can be seen whilst diving here, and dolphins are commonly sighted. Leatherback, Loggerhead and Green Turtles are often seen in the water, coming ashore to lay their eggs on the sandy island beaches – often right in front of the beach chalets. Humpback Whales also frequent the island waters between August and October.
