Welcome to the incredible world of Somente Aqua, Ponta Do Ouro, Mozambique. The Somente Aqua team is dedicated to the observation and conservation of our magnificent marine surroundings. Supported by day-to-day data collection and marine monitoring, our commitment to the environment is continuously reinforcing the sustainable preservation of our marine life.

Mozambique has a predominantly tropical climate, with a cool season from May to July. The rainy season is from November to April.

Here, a moment below the surface of the ocean will remain with you for a lifetime. We invite you to join us in observing and interacting with the amazing cetaceans and other marine life residing in the bays of southern Mozambique.
In Ponta we have an incredibly special bond with a group of wild dolphins (some resident and others transient to the area) with whom we socialize and have formed some profound bonds and inter-relationships. We feel it is our obligation, and have therefore made it our key purpose, to ensure the well being and preservation of the dolphins, as well as other marine life within the area, at all times.

Our wild dolphin swim programme is regulated by a responsible Code of Conduct, manifested from years of experience of swimming with wild dolphins. We are one of only two authorized dolphin operators within the Ponta do Ouro region, and by following and maintaining our strict practice conduct, you can be rest assured that you are in capable hands.

The Dolphin Centre crew is unwavering in their dedication to the sustained conservation of our magnificent surroundings. It is through detailed ecological briefings and our meticulously formulated Code of Conduct that we are able to simultaneously educate our clients while preserving the richness of our aquatic environment. We promote Responsible Marine Mammal Tourism in creating a sustainable eco-friendly approach while conserving our environment through education. Education is our key strategy in our commitment to conservation, and we believe through education we achieve our conservation objective.

At Somente Aqua we want you to have the best possible experience when swimming with wild dolphins. We hope to share this experience with you as we dance with the dolphins of Ponta - our "beloved special finned friends".
