Diving Information

Tofo Scuba is just a few steps away from the Guesthouse, they offer a good variety of dive courses from Try Dives to Divemaster. Along with daily diving they also run Ocean Safaris for non-divers to see the amazing whale sharks. The Ocean Safari boats often encounter other sea life such as manta rays, dolphins, and turtles. And from June to November, they have the incredible Humpback Migration that is a truly incredible experience!

Dives are taken as 2 dives with a surface interval on board the RIB which departs between 8am and 9am in the morning, usually returning between midday and 1pm. When conditions allow, a 3rd dive may be possible in the afternoon.

Tofo is rich in a diverse array of marine life, hard and soft corals, pelagic fish, a multitude of colourful reef fish, turtles and giant moray eels. There are a wide variety of rays, some of which are not seen in many parts of the world.

Many people visit this destination just for the experience of diving with manta rays, including the giant manta ray, as the area is said to have one of the largest known manta ray populations in the world! Apart from rays, you may also encounter grey reef sharks, white and black tip reef sharks as well as the majestic whale shark.

For those divers who love the little things, the reefs offer a wonderous array of shrimps, nudibranchs, leaf fish and a whole range of other critters to keep you fascinated throughout your dive. Dive sites vary in distance from 5-35 minutes from shore and encompass some of the most spectacular reefs on the Mozambican coastline with the possibility of a snorkel with whale sharks en-route!
