Resort Description

Tofo Mar Hotel is boutique beach resort with one of the best african dive centers on site.

"Perfect service and the best spot on the beach" sums it up superbly. Popular with guests and divers from around the world, Tofo Mar Hotel makes the most of life's simple pleasures. Diving with rays and whale sharks is encourages in the day, and nights are spent snoozing only 12 steps away from the warm sea, surrounded by untouched nature.

The restaurant has spectacular views of the turquoise bay and an enormous terrace pushing out towards the endless sea. Pad across the beach to work off your meal, then stroll over to the rooftop bar for live music, theater and a night cap. The 5* PADI IDC dive center on site will introduce you to the famous Manta Reef - or to 18 other equally stunning dive sites. 

Explore diving around the Tofo Mar Hotel

What to see

The Agulhas Current passes through the coast off Inhambane and Tofo and this brings about plankton rich waters. As such, whale shark and manta ray sightings are almost guaranteed here and you might even spot the great oceanic manta rays which come by to feed and clean. Cleaning stations are filled with lyretail anthias, cleaner wrasse and butterflyfish. Migrating whales also travel along the Agulhas Current which is why there are chances to see the likes of humpback whales off the coast from June to November.

At the outer reefs, sharks are quite plentiful with whitetip sharks, blacktip sharks, leopard sharks and if you are lucky, hammerhead sharks. Besides that, consider it a lifetime opportunity if you manage to dive with a dugong but otherwise the reefs and walls have plenty to offer. These include great personalities of the humphead wrasse, giant grouper and potato cod. There are also green sea turtles and the rare loggerhead sea turtles. Smaller critters like moray eels, seahorses, garden eels, and scorpionfish are also a delight to find.

Dive Center

Highlights

  • Nuvair Nitrox membrane compressor for longer dive times
  • Spot six or seven whale sharks at a time in one of the world's biggest whale shark populations
  • Take a unique and unforgettable two hour snorkeling safari with dolphins and rays
  • In winter months, witness humpback migrating along the coastline
  • Have a drink and swap diving tales at the center's rooftop bar
  • Discover the wonders of Tofo’s reefs by night - it's the only dive center in the area to offer Night Dives
