Simon Thomé, a PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) qualified technical diver (SSI extended range nitrox), reports excellent diving conditions at Ponta do Ouro in Mozambique this weekend.

Travelling with fellow PADI divers, the group spent this long weekend putting in two dives each day. Visibility was good all weekend and waters were calm – although on Saturday a 3m swell curtailed the afternoon’s diving.

On Easter Friday, Simon and the two other technical divers in the group, Adrian Smit – Scubalicious instructor, and Chris Serfontein, carried out a 25m dive, simulating accelerated decompression on the ascent.

During the weekend the group visited a number of reefs, amongst which were: Creche, Checkers, Atlantis and Pinnacles. Sightings included Honey Comb Moray Eels, Blue-Spotted Ribbontail Ray, Stingrays, Porcelain Crabs, Scorpion Fish, Potato Bass, Yellow Snappers, and the very colourful Gasflame Nudibranch.

Water temperature throughout the weekend averaged 25C.
