- Do we really need malaria medication?
Yes, Mozambique is a high risk malaria area and the use of preventative medication is needed. If you are planning to dive it is not recommended that you use Larium.
Tofo is one of the safest areas in Mozambique to travel too; the people are very friendly and easily approachable. There is no violent crime in the tofo area.
- How many dives a day is it possible to complete in a day?
As the diving here in tofo can be challenging, two dives in a day is easily achievable – but for those of you with a little more energy three is also possible (double dive in the morning – then a single afternoon)
- Do I need to bring my certification card?
Most definitely and more so if you are certified by any organisation other than PADI – the dive centre is very strict on checking certification levels. PADI has an online diver check option which really is useful. Logbooks are also required but not mandatory.
- What if I need a corrective lens dive mask?
Unfortunately the dive centre doesn’t stock corrective lens masks, so we ask all divers needing those to bring their own and if not contact lenses are a good option.

* Tofo Beach is located 20km from the historic port city of Inhambane in Southern Mozambique , just over 500km north of the capital Maputo . With miles upon miles of unspoiled, pristine, tropical beaches and warm Indian Ocean waters teeming with marine life. It has been described as “the next Goa”, and while this may be pushing it a bit, Tofo has definitely become a traveller’s Mecca on the Eastern coast of Africa. The reasons are not hard to discern: beautiful stretches of beach, a friendly laid-back vibe, a small but pumping nightlife, great diving and snorkelling and a few good restaurants, too. Tofo has a much livelier atmosphere and nightlife by comparison with the quieter resorts found south of Inhambane. There is a decent range of budget accommodation all along the beach but backpackers may feel a little marginalised.
Tofo is now known among international divers as one of the best places in the world to have close encounters with Manta Rays and Whale Sharks. Both Mantas and Whale Sharks can be seen in Tofo year round.
Our winter months see the arrival of the humpback whales migrating south and a great day of diving in the winter can include all of these majestic creatures in one morning – nowhere else in the world can offer this remarkable combination!!
