We went out deep sea fishing with a very friendly and fun guide. Fishing was slow ay the start but soon picked up around 11 am. We caught 8 nice baracuda in only a couple of hours. Would recommend ;)

Great to get a nice review re our fishing charter. Since we acquired Mr T, fishing was excellent, hope you will return soon -- nothing as good as fresh fish that has not been in a freezer!

Two weeks ago group of Estonian divers were diving in Vilanculos with DIve Bararuto. It was very good dive center, friendly and helpful staff and professional guide. Divesites were good, but just too long way to go.
