Diversity Scuba is a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre and Tofo's longest running scuba dive operation. Based on the beautiful Tofo Beach in Inhambane Province, Mozambique, we are lucky enough to be able to offer our customers some of the best and most spectacular scuba diving in Mozambique and the Indian Ocean.
We have three fully equipped dive boats which can do as many as three launches a day each, offering recreational diving on nineteen different sites in the Tofo area, including the famous Manta Reef. All our dives are guided and we aim to have no more than 6 divers in one group, offering personalized service to our clients, with safety and enjoyment being our priorities.
The Diversity Scuba diving team - 3 Instructors and 2 Dive Masters - are friendly experienced PADI professionals whose services include a full range of PADI training courses from Discover Scuba Diving all the way to Instructor. With our large onsite training pool, quality Scubapro rental equipment, spacious and well equipped classroom facilities and enthusiastic instructors, we offer a high standard of diver training in a safe, relaxed environment.
Diversity Scuba is located right on the centre of Tofo and our modern and comfortable premises include a rooftop bar where we do the briefings and debriefings and where you can have a cold drink or a snack in between dives enjoying the beautiful view of the surrounding area. Diversity’s bar provides to our guests free tea and coffee throughout the day and a wide screen TV always showing our fantastic diving videos. For your comfort and safety we also have available a large personal dive equipment store room and lockers you can use as dry storage for personal belongings.
We have a Nuvair Nitrox membrane compressor which can provide up to 40% enriched air. This is ideal for the deeper sites to have longer dive times. We have on offer Nitrox courses and provide FREE Nitrox fills on all dives to Nitrox certified divers. When the weather and ocean conditions allow it, Diversity Scuba is also the only dive operation in the area to offer Night Dives, thus providing you the unique opportunity to discover the wonders of diving Tofo’s reefs by night!
In the pristine waters of the Tofo area we not only have one of the biggest Whale Shark populations in the world, which can be spotted year round and sometimes in groups of up to 6 or 7 Whale Sharks at a time, as there is also the incredible opportunity to dive with graceful Giant Manta Rays (up to 7 m across) that can be found on most of our main dive sites in the area, all of which are within a 30 minute boat journey from Tofo.
Besides these gentle giants, the Tofo area also offers spectacular world class diving on pristine reefs with an abundance of marine life ranging from soft and hard corals, pelagic fishes, multitudes of reef fishes, shrimps, nudibranchs, giant moray eels, turtles, dolphins and a variety of rays, some of which are not seen in many parts of the world like the small eye stingray. Sightings of White Tip, Black Tip and Grey Reef Sharks are a common occurrence and even the occasional Leopard Shark or Hammerhead Sharks are seen every now and then.
But the highlight of any day in Tofo has to be the time spent with the majestic Whale Shark, either on the boat ride out to the dive sites or during one of our Ocean Safaris, which are a unique and unforgettable two hour snorkeling experience with the possibility of encounters and swimming with Whale Sharks, Dolphins and occasionally also Manta Rays.
Twice a week we also offer Bio Ocean Safaris with a marine biologist onboard which constitute an excellent opportunity to learn more about our Whale Sharks and Mantas while also actively contributing to scientific research being conducted in the Tofo waters.
Last but not least during the winter months (May to October) large numbers of Humpback Whales migrate along the coastline and come very close to shore in the Tofo area, thus broadening the chances to observe some more giants of the deep. Humpbacks Whales are frequently seen from the boat but there is also a good probability of an encounter whilst you are diving, which constitutes a unique chance to see these huge creatures up close and personal. If you are not lucky enough to spot one, you’ll at least listen to their fantastic songs whilst diving in any of our reefs!
Our aim at Diversity Scuba is to provide a non-intrusive opportunity for ocean and adventure lovers worldwide to observe the diverse Mozambican marine life in their natural habitat. A visit to the reefs of Tofo with Diversity Scuba will leave you with memories to treasure and dreams of returning.
