TOFO SCUBA is the longest running dive center in Mozambique. (18 Years) We pioneered diving in the Tofo, Barra area. We are a PADI Resort center. We also offer RAID courses (Open Water to instructor) which can be a more affordable option as it does not require that you purchase a book. (E learning) We are situated right on the beach and 30 meters from the sea. (Next to Dino's bar and Fatima's Backpackers). We have an awesome restaurant on site. Tofo Scuba has the ONLY HEATED DIVER TRAINING POOL IN TOFO (26 degrees instead of 18 degrees) We run 3 x 8,3 meter superducks powered by 100hp Yamaha 4 stroke motors. FREE NITROX for those divers who are qualified Nitrox divers. This will give you 10 to 15 min..Longer bottom time on our deep dives. Safety (2 Dive Masters on EVERY Dive) and customer service are our priority. Free WI FI For Tofo Scuba Customers. Your own LOCKER to safely store your personal belongings.


It is the stated objective of the staff and management of Tofo Scuba to provide to our customers the highest standard of quality and service as it relates to scuba diving and scuba diver training.

This commitment to service excellence will be seen in our desire and ability to continually improve the standard of both our student training programs and our daily casual diver charters.

Of prime importance to us, is the safety and well being of all our customers and students. We will be measured by our ability to always supply well-maintained, safe diving equipment, good quality air and fully equipped, seaworthy dive boats at all times.

We undertake to always foster an environment conducive to the safer learning and enjoyment of scuba diving in a friendly and relaxed manner. Our attitude toward scuba diving and diver training will always be conservative.

Enjoyed c. 10 dives with Tofo scuba; great diving school. Professional setup in its operations (scheduling & planning) including high safety standards (detailed dive briefing before every trip). Great staff; dove with 5 dive masters / instructors across the 4 days of diving: all highly capable and a pleasure to be around. Facilities & equipment on par (incl. nitrox) albeit... More

My husband and I went to Tofo for our honeymoon specifically to go diving. We had heard some good things about Tofo Scuba and so pre-booked a week's worth of dives with them. We liked them so much we extended our stay in Tofo by another week so we could do more dives! Everyone who works at Tofo Scuba is... More

We dived at Tofo Scuba for 4 days in April 2017, they arranged accommodation and airport pickups for us as well as all the diving and everything went perfectly! Super well organized, and with well-maintained boats and kit (we did one trip out on a boat from another center there and the condition was not nearly as good). Also if... More

I absolutely loved the people at Tofo scuba. All of them are friendly and approachable. I had a not so good experience in Vilanculo and it made me nervous about diving in Tofo but as soon as I walked in I felt so comfortable and welcomed. The hospitality here is what every dive place should be like. I felt very... More

They have fun and safety as their priorities. Clear instructions and protocols which apply to everyone equally (incl me as an instructor with 970 dives). So chances of error and thus accidents are reduces significantly, which is a good thing. Very motivated staff and they will try their best to give you the best dive. Their only flaw is that... More

I had such a fantastic time in Praia do Tofo scuba diving with Tofo Scuba. The people are kind and very knowledgeable. Their gear (if you're renting) is in very good condition. They have nitrox, which is great for some of those deeper sea dives. We saw so much on our dives.. mantas, leopard sharks, eels, rays, and loads and... More

Great, chilled dive shop! We went diving with other operators, but didn't feel the same warm personal interaction that we did with the staff at Tofo Scuba. Of all the places around Tofo, I felt like this was the only dive shop that was truely honest when asking about the day's diving conditions and expectations for the forecast. If the... More

Had the opportunity to do the open ocean safari. Owners and guides very helpful and friendly. Had to swap days, and they had no problems with it. A very nice restaurant with great food.

These guys are the best in Tofo, striking a perfect balance of being both fun and professional. Equipment is all well maintained and of good quality. Dive masters clearly love their jobs and their enthusiasm will make your dives even more enjoyable. They also offer ocean safari trips to search for and snorkel with dolphins and whale sharks if you... More
