Reviewed By SparkyClarky1974 - Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

I came here to do my IDC (Instructor Development Course) and had a fantastic time. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming, the organisation of the dives is spot-on, the guiding very good and safe, and the dives themselves are stunning. I particularly liked the northern sites but all the sites offer something new and exciting.
The facilities are also fantastic: gear is in good condition, pool is lovely and the on-site restaurant does amazing vegetarian food. I didn't want to leave.

Diversity Scuba Tofo

Diversity Scuba is a PADI 5 Star CDC - Career Development Center and Tofo's longest operating scuba dive center. Based on the beautiful Tofo Beach in Inhambane Province, Mozambique, we are confident we can offer our customers some of the most spectacular scuba diving in the Indian Ocean. Come and dive with sharks, rays and turtles, the iconic manta rays, Humpback whales and much more, the best diving in Mozambique. Our coral reefs are abundant with marine life. We have one of the highest Whale Shark populations in the world, with all-year-round sightings with the best chance of seeing these beautiful creatures through the summer months (November to April/May). 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. The Humpback whale population is growing every year and we are lucky enough to be seeing more and more of these incredible animals on scuba in season.

The crew at Diversity Scuba is not only professional but super friendly and goes above the call of duty to assist. The dives sites were amazing and beautiful and we could fully enjoy it because we knew pro's were with us. The café upstairs and pool is perfect to relax and unwind after a dive. Thank you to everyone at Diversity for making it our most memorable experience of our whole Tofo trip!

Walkonwater

Reviewed By Jacques136 - Pretoria, South Africa

We did 2 trips with walkonwater. The 1st trip, we went kayaking through the mangrove swamps. We saw loads of bird species. Including some Kingfishers and Parrots.
The 2nd trip we went on, was to go see the seahorses in the lagoon. Having never seen seahorses before it was amazing.
Our only regret was that we did not have more days available to do some of the the other water excursion they have to offer like Surfing, jet skiing, snorkeling and loads more.

Marine Megafauna Foundation

Each week Marine Megafauna Foundation holds 3 different hour-long talks: | Manta Monday at Dathonga - 6pm - 200 Metical pp | Whale Shark Wednesday at Tofo Do Mar Hotel - 6pm - 200 Metical pp | Free Friday at Casa de Comer - 6pm - Free entry | Come along to find out more about marine megafauna and why ongoing research is critical to their protection. All funds raised from the talks go directly back into our research and conservation programs to protect marine megafauna.

Reviewed By lorenzo135 - Milan, Italy

These little lectures are organized three times a week and delivered by very young and expert students or scientist directly involved in the field. They are very informative and pleasant to listen to. They are alternatively held at the Casa de Comer Restaurant.
I personally followed one on humpback whales and one on the leopard shark and learned something new on both occasions. They normally last 45 to 60 mins and there is plenty of room for questions.
