Did you know that much marine life is fluorescent? We are pioneers of glow diving or fluorescent diving in Mozambique. Our calm water and easy shore entry allow excellent opportunities for night diving, so why not to discover something completely new?!
Your night dive and the way you see animals will never be the same! With the assistance of blue lights and special filters you will be able to see many marine organisms glowing in the dark, from coral polyps to crazy nudibranchs. Experience night diving as if you were at an underwater disco!
Fluorescent or “Fluo” diving has recently taken the diving community by storm and Nuarro is the first and only dive centre in Mozambique to off this experience to our clients. Chemical compounds contained in the tissues of many marine animals react to UV light causing them to fluoresce in brilliant reds, purples and greens, we take UV lights and filters on night dives to experience the reefs like never before! Be among the first to get the Fluo Dive bug!
Nuarro is the only lodge in the North of Mozambique offering rebreather diving!
We are a closed circuit rebreather (CCR) friendly dive centre and can provide boosted oxygen to 200 bar, sodasorb, training and support. With two APD CCR’s, we can provide a rental unit as well as guiding on CCR if you chose to bring your own machine. Contact us for more details.
