Catsonova Cruises Facilities
Catsonova Cruises Activities
he greater Bazaruto Archipelago is a world renowned paradise, both below and above water. Catsonova is the perfect base boat to enjoy it. We offer a wide range of land and water based activities for young and old.
The islands amongst Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago are surrounded by well kept natural reefs, holding an abundance of different species of fish to be targeted by anglers.
The boat comes equipped with a significant range of tackle allowing us to cover most styles of fishing. We always have a spread of lures out the back whilst on the move.
Catsonova’s main advantage is that she can be used as an overnight base boat, allowing anglers to wake up much closer to fishing grounds, eliminating trips from the mainland and allowing us to fish the prime times of the day such as sunrise, and overall, more hours in your day to land that catch of a lifetime.
We offer trawling, light tackle spinning, heavy spinning and live bait fishing.
Ski boats to access further reefs through larger seas may be hired at an additional cost upon request. Please liase with Dean directly.
ISLAND HOPPING AND CASTAWAY PICNICS
The Archipelago’s islands and sandbanks are idillic, waiting to be explored on foot, snorkel or simply enjoy a private castaway picnic. Our tender boat can transfer guests to and from Catsonova to a destination that best suits your interest or occasion.
SNORKELLING AND DIVING
Catsonova has on board snorkelling equipment for 8 people and for the underwater enthusiasts seeking deeper waters, certified dive operator pic-ups from the yacht can also be arranged.
