St Lazarus & Metundo Canyon Dive



Getting to St Lazarus Banks is a feat. Cruise the 8 hours from your base, Ibo Island Lodge, island hopping around Medjumbe Island and Vamizi Island. At the Banks, try a little live-aboard fun, diving huge depths of a mysterious atoll for hours. Game fish shoals, bait fish schools, it’s all happening. Our Maxim 400 super yacht is fully equipped for certified scuba divers with dive tanks, compressors, weight belts and dive gear on board.
