150km of breathtaking,
untouched reef

Ilha do Fogo, translated as Fire Island, is a beautiful and remote island that lies off the Northern coast of Mozambique. It boasts 150kms of breathtaking, unexplored reef, with abundant and diverse marine life. If you’re reading this, you’ve been fortunate to get the inside scoop on a once-in-a-lifetime, bucket-list adventure. We are offering a unique opportunity to discover unknown reefs, and help conserve this remote island. We need to learn more about Fire Island’s incredible flora and fauna, with the goal of setting up projects to protect its imperilled inhabitants.
So far, we know that our island is an essential nesting spot for turtles, including endangered green and hawksbill turtles. We sadly discovered that visiting turtles have been at the hands of poachers for many years. Since this discovery, we have initiated our turtle monitoring program, but need help to fully establish it. The project aims to empower members of the local community, with the knowledge and skills, to protect our marine life. Megafauna enthusiasts can expect to see whales from as early as May, through to December, when the southern right and humpback whales migrate to our warmer waters.

" We are offering a unique opportunity to discover unknown reefs, and help conserve this remote island. "

Northern Mozambique is thought to be a migratory corridor for endangered whale sharks and apex predators, including bull and hammerhead sharks. Manta rays, devil rays, and stingrays are also likely visitors to our reefs. With long stretches of exquisite coral-rich reefs and mysterious drop-offs, just meters off the island’s coastline, even the most seasoned divers will be wonderstruck.
