DO WE REALLY NEED MALARIA MEDICATION?
Yes, Mozambique is a high risk malaria area and the use of preventative medication is needed. If you’re planning to dive, taking Larium is NOT recommended, so we suggest you choose a different type of anti-malarial medication.
IS IT SAFE IN TOFO?
Yes, Tofo is one of the safest areas in Mozambique. The people are very friendly and easily approachable and there is no violent crime in the Tofo area.
HOW MANY DIVES 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. For keen divers with a little more energy, it is also possible to dive three times a day (with a double tank in the morning followed by a single dive in the afternoon).
DO I NEED TO BRING MY CERTIFICATION CARD?
Most definitely – especially if you are certified by any organisation other than PADI. We are very strict about checking certification levels. Bringing your logbooks is also recommended, but not mandatory.
WHAT IF I NEED A CORRECTIVE LENS DIVE MASK?
Unfortunately, we don’t stock corrective lens masks so, if you need one, we ask you to bring your own. If that’s not possible, contact lenses are a good option. Please note, if you are travelling by plane, we highly recommend that you pack your corrective lens masks in your hand luggage.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DIVE IN TOFO?
In all honesty, there is no right or wrong time to dive. The diving here in Tofo is very special all year round. If you’re keen to see a particular type of fauna, however, there might be a better time of year for you to travel. For example, our winter months (which run from June until late August) are when you’re most likely to see – and if you’re really lucky, dive with – humpback whales. Unlike in many other dive destinations around the world, in Tofo you can see manta rays and whale sharks all year round.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO RENT DIVING EQUIPMENT AT YOUR SHOP?
Yes, here at Peri-Peri, we stock a full range of Scubapro diving equipment, rash vests and both long and short 5mm wetsuits.
To help divers prepare for the new reality of diving during COVID-19 at Peri-Peri Divers. Our Mozambican Government, SSI and the Divers Alert Network (DAN) recently issued advice to dive operators on how to safely resume operations.
While this guidance gives divers an inkling of what they can expect when returning to our dive shop the risk cannot be entirely eliminated when interacting with other people.
Below we will list what we at Peri-Peri Divers are implementing to Safeguard as best we can our staff, friends and family divers from this unprecedented pandemic.
What we ask of you…
Above all else, don’t forget to smile.
Our promise to you…
We are living in extreme times and an ever changing world so it’s important to understand what we got into diving for in the first place and know that it may be a difficult transition to begin with but we will get over this as long as we can adhere to the rule changes and be respectful to individuals and the business needs alike.. so enjoy you time with us and hopefully the diving will blow your mind!
