Land and Water Sports
The calm natural lagoon around Denis Island allows for safe swimming in crystal clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Snorkelling is a must and around the house reef just metres from the beach there is a fantastic array of tropical marine life and corals. Canoes are also available for the more energetic.
The protected waters and reefs around the island allow for fantastic diving year round and the dive centre is affiliated to PADI. There are 9 coral dive sites with a gradual drop off 5 – 35 metres into the ocean depths. A wide variety of species including turtles, sailfish, tuna, dolphins and rays may be observed on most of the reefs. If you are lucky enough during September- mid November, you might catch sight of whale sharks and majestic manta rays.
A fishing bank lies close to the island which allows for game, bottom and fly fishing. Half or full day charters can be booked upon request.
