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.

MISSION STATEMENT.

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.

I spent one week in February 2016 with Tofo Scuba and I was more or less happy and would return to it next time in Tofo. Instructor team is competent and gives good pre-dive briefings. Stuff is friendly and always interested in a small talk. Dive gear is most of the time prepared and also carried to the boats by... More

Tofo Scuba has to be one of the best diving schools around! Wonderfull staff, so chilled atmosphere and a beautiful beach. Not to mention that Tofo is one the most affordable and best diving spots in the world!! I did my Raid (cheaper and just as good as Padi) open water and advanced at Tofo Scuba. Safety first, very accommodating... More

The view from their patio is amazing. Nothing like having a burger with your toes in the sand. The food was average, you come here for the ocean front seating. There is also free WiFi if you eat at the restaurant.
