Your diving package could be tailor made for eight of you where you enjoy other water sports as well, great food and wine and spectacular scenery. When you get to St Lazarus Banks you will be gob smacked to say the very least.

We like to be at the banks before sunrise which means leaving our previous stop over venue very early in the morning. At this prime offshore fishing destination, we will spend all day fishing and diving, to your heart’s content. We even drop anchor here and spend the night on our luxury yacht, above the awesome dive sites you have just explored.

We spend the next day at Lazarus Banks where you get to find new dive sites and new marine wonders – take photos underwater, gasp with glee, and enjoy every minute. Divers are free to spend their third day either diving at Lazarus Banks or enjoying Matemo Island and its well-known dive sites. Whatever you do, remember that St Lazarus Banks is a phenomenal dive site, well worth the challenge, especially for professional divers who want to explore the various rock formations deep down under the warm water of the Indian Ocean.
