OUR TRIP TO THE ESTUARY

IMG_1753Last Friday we went with a group of guests staying with us at Casa Do Mar, and spent the afternoon by the Estuary close to Inhambane, near Pansy Island. We loaded the bukkies with essentials (dive gear, Castle Lites) and headed north. An hour of scenic sand roads and few thousand coconut palms later we reached the estuary, with just enough time for a dive before the high tide.

The shallow turquoise water of the lagoon proved an idyllic location to try something new. The sandy 3m bottom was dotted with giant urchins, sea horses, clams and crabs – an ecosystem very different to our deeper ocean sites. The depth allowed a longer bottom time than usual, while non-divers enjoyed collected pansy shells and snorkeled above.
