Tofo is a place few people get to know. This is why I immediately got hooked when Isabelle from SeaCrush told me about this destination.

I was looking for a remote place to go to, far from the tourist attractions. A place I could feel inner peace, I could dive and also discover the culture of.

With no doubt Tofo brought me what I was looking for.

As a Divemaster, I always go on a holiday with the objective to explore the underwater world.

If you dream of seeing humpback whales, manta rays and whalesharks, go to Tofo!! I was lucky to see these three species in the first few dives.

Imagine, you’re twenty meters down, you close your eyes and you listen to the whales’ songs. You are immediately submerged by a magical and relaxing sensation! So many emotions go through your mind!

Let’s not forget all the other species I have seen… I won’t tell more and let you discover these in the video I made!!

What’s very specific about the diveshop is that you get to dive with research scientists of Marine Megafauna Foundation. They identify, research and protect manta rays and whalesharks. They explain you what they do underwater during the briefings, and if you’re curious, they’ll show you their work. You won’t dive the same after!!

Tofo offered me so many beautiful moments, you come back transformed, grateful, and willing more than ever to embark into another flight to go back to Mozambique…

Adopt, adapt, improve is his motto. His best book: his passport… He is PADI divemaster. He dived in Thailand, Egypte, South Africa, Mauritious and Mozambique. Where he wished to go for his next underwater explorations: Bahamas, Keys Island, Japan and and and… 😉
