Back to Basics Adventures is a boutique dive centre located in central Ponta do Ouro, Mozambique. We found that the essence of our operation is the people. The people that own it, the people that work here, and most importantly the people that visit us, because Back to Basics Adventures realises that it is the people that make the dive a memorable experience, not the amount of dives you can fit into a day. It is a community, not a business, where each customer is known by their name and listened to. We got over 50 different reefs to choose from, with both excellent macro and wide angle opportunities. Ponta do Ouro is internationally known for our resident bull sharks and extremely good macro sites. Since our own passion is the ocean we specialising in underwater photography and smaller groups/families wanting to experience the ocean together. Our goal is to give our clients an experience they can bring with them and share with others. Since 2017 we are offering various naturalist course and interesting marine talks with known wildlife authors. The Ocean Matters and we believe in Education through Passion. / Jenny and Rupert
