WHY PERI-PERI DIVERS?

Apart from being really, really ridiculously good looking, we love meeting new people, experiencing new things and, above all else, diving. We've been diving in and around Tofo for over 30 years between us and it's thanks to this local experience and enthusiasm for diving Tofo's pristine reefs that we consistently receive 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor.

When diving with Peri-Peri, the newly built tailored dive centre offers the highest standards in terms of facilities and service, the highlight of which is the spacious 5m deep training pool. We PROMISE you a personalized dive experience that rivals the larger and more commercial operations. Safety is, above all else our priority, but there's no harm in making the experience as enjoyable as it can be. That's why we're proud of our friendly, down-to-earth attitude, which you'll feel from the moment you walk through the door.

We have a huge variety of reefs to choose from (over 25 reefs at a range of different depths), which cater for all levels of diver. Our 18m Lemon & Herb shallow reefs are great for beginner and advanced divers alike or a nice option if you’re still finding your feet after a long flight. We also have our aptly named “Hot” reefs, which are 25m or deeper. These sites essentially made Tofo the amazing diving destination it is today. Aimed at advanced divers with some experience, the current and negative water entries make this adventure diving at its best.

COVID-19

To help divers prepare for the new reality of diving during COVID-19 at Peri-Peri Divers. Our Mozambican Government, PADI 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.


  • Firstly, all staff members have been trained in both PADI & DAN International COVID preventative methods
  • We have made available cleaning stations with sanitizer on the 2 x entry points to the dive shop, around the centre and in the bathrooms·
  • Temperatures will be taken on entry
  • All entrants will be required to sign in and out of the diving shop, allowing us to trace should the unthinkable arise.
  • Each guest will be given their own regulator where needed to use for the duration of your stay. We have disinfectant in all dip tanks for cleaning after each dive/use.
  • There will be special markers on the floor 1.5m apart for kiting up and de-kitting.
  • We will have a 1 person in, one person out rule for the toilet and hot showers
  • There will be a reduced capacity on all dive / snorkelling excursions with a maximum of 8 total divers / snorkellers
  • Masks / buffers to be worn at all times once outside of the dive shop, launching, beaching and in the boat.
  • Water and light snacks will be available on all boats, but it is recommended you bring your own.

What we ask of you…

  • Please make use of all the sanitizing stations as much as makes you feel comfortable
  • Please be respectful of distancing rules whether that be at sea or in the shop and that each person has their own principles and ideals
  • Can we suggest you bring a diving pouch containing a mask, or facial buffer (also helps with the sun), water bottle (keeping with you at all times), gloves, lock for your locker (we do have @ 100MZN), probably most importantly a pen, sunblock, sunglasses and hat.
  • Stay distant at the surface or in the boat and visually buddy check your dive partners equipment
  • Try to kit up solo, again, both in the shop and out at sea.
  • Breath through regulators in close proximity at the surface before entering the dive boat
  • Watch where you are pointing the snorkel
  • Try to smear defog not saliva when cleaning your mask lens

Above all else, don’t forget to smile. 😊 😊


Our promise to you…

  • To constantly as best we can, disinfect and clean all spaces and equipment.
  • All staff will be temperature checked and be required to clean hands as much as possible
  • We will provide hand sanitizer to guests with a minimum of 60% alcohol
  • We will make your safety our priority and if there is something that has been overlooked or makes you uncomfortable please say and we will do all we can to rectify.


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!
