My Summary


Diversity Scuba is a 5 Star Gold Palm IDC center, operating in Tofo since 2000. We have one 7.4 metre rib (semi-rigid inflatable dive boat), with a capacity of 12 divers, and two 8 metre ribs with a capacity for 16 divers. We can do as many as three launches in a day from each boat, offering recreational diving on twelve different sites in the Tofo area, including the famous Manta Reef. All our dives are guided and we aim to have no more than 6 divers in one group with one divemaster and offer personalised, professional service to our clients, with safety and enjoyment our priorities. We also now offer NITROX courses and fills.


The Diversity Scuba team are friendly, experienced PADI professionals whose services include a full range of PADI training courses from Discover Scuba all the way to Instructor. With our on site training pool, classroom facilities and enthusiastic instructors, we offer a high standard of diver training in a safe, relaxed environment.


The Tofo area offers spectacular diving on pristine reefs with an abundance of marine life ranging from soft and hard corals, pelagic fishes, multitudes of coral and reef fishes, shrimps, nudibranchs and Manta Rays. There is also a good opportunity to see White Tip and Grey Reef Sharks at certain sites. We often have the opportunity to snorkel with whalesharks on the boat trip to some dive sites!



We also offer Ocean Safaris. The aim of our snorkeling adventures is to take people up close and personal with magnificent whalesharks that frequent our waters. This is a truly unforgettable experience and the best way to spend time in the water with the whalesharks!

Whalesharks are gentle, non-aggressive plankton feeders that can reach up to 12m in length with average lengths of 8-9m! We are fortunate enough to see Whalesharks throughout the whole year, though we do tend to see them in greater numbers from November through to around May, June.We often see dolphins during the snorkeling trips and from June through to October we often spot humpback whales!
