Diversity Scuba is a PADI 5 Star CDC - Career Development Center and Tofo's longest operating scuba dive center. Based on the beautiful Tofo Beach in Inhambane Province, Mozambique, we are confident we can offer our customers some of the most spectacular scuba diving in the Indian Ocean.

Come and dive with sharks, rays and turtles, the iconic manta rays, Humpback whales and much more, the best diving in Mozambique.

Our coral reefs are abundant with marine life. We have one of the highest Whale Shark populations in the world, with all-year-round sightings with the best chance of seeing these beautiful creatures through the summer months (November to April/May). During the Winter months (May to October), large numbers of Humpback Whales migrate along the coastline and come very close to shore in the Tofo area. The Humpback whale population is growing every year and we are lucky enough to be seeing more and more of these incredible animals on scuba in season.

Excellent service from Carlos, Sarah, Paulo & the rest of the team! Friendly staff, clean premises, proper dive plans, & properly checked equipment. The activity centre organised transfers for me to anywhere I needed to go, as well as kayaking through the Barra Mangroves to see the bird life hidden in each mangrove patch.

Great facilities, very central location. Im a diver with trust-issues and I stayed with this divecenter during my whole holiday of 3 weeks. Very calm and experienced divemasters, althoug the whole crew is very good fun. After/inbetween dives, you can go to the upstairs café (also the name of the café; Upstairs) and relaxe and have the best coffe and... More

I loved this place. Was a great choice for me. I was a novice diver looking to take my open water course. There are several places in Tofo and from what I understand, they are all similar. All I can say is that I had a great experience with these guys. Carlos gave me a lot of confidence in their... More

I ended up NOT using Diversity, something didn't 'feel' right. Attitude was a little dismissive, bordering on condescending for starts, even arrogant and certainly not as helpful or as understanding as I would have liked, so didn't dive with them in the end. Dis try their café which was expensive and no free wifi, had to pay?! Also the surfboard... More

Dear Drew, I have asked Tripadvisor to remove your review if you do not. We feel it is highly unfair of you to 'review' our dive centre considering you didn't even dive with us. I have asked the reception staff if they can remember this supposedly condescending interaction with you and they cannot. I can, with complete confidence, tell you... More

I went to Tofo specifically to see whale sharks and humpbacks: I was not disappointed. Diversity's facilities are top notch and even if you aren't a scuba diver, there is plenty to do there: 1) Scuba diving is some of the best I have done in the world, and they use strict safety measures 2) Lots of different dive sites...

Thanks to Carlos, Filipe and Manuel, they took good care of us! We are both AOWD/Nitrox divers and wanted to try some other diving. This is what you get in Tofo!

Dive masters were great. I was there with a difficult group of highly qualified divers that didn't speak any English or Portuguese - despite this the dive leader ensured safety at all times even when they would disperse the second we touched the water. Lots of good deeper dives 25-35m and the whole team uses nitrox. Saw rays (including the... More
