Dive Center is located in the hotel Albatroz Lodge
Peri Peri Divers are the freshest and ‘hottest’ dive centre in Tofo, we possess a combined 15 years of experience diving Tofo’s world renown reefs.
Peri-Peri offers a personalised dive service that rivals the larger more commercial operations by taking smaller groups of divers to explore the world famous dive sites of Tofo beach.
We offer comprehensive PADI training schemes from Open Water through to Dive Master, as well as specialist courses. In association with neighbouring Albatroz Lodge & Backpackers, we have a range of dive packages to suit all budgets and experience levels.

We have over 20 sites which we have ranked on a scale from ‘lemon and herb’ to ‘hot’ relating to the experience level required to dive there. We welcome all ages and abilities from those wishing to snorkel with whale sharks on an Ocean Safari or to ‘Discover Scuba’ through to the more adventurous diver who wishes to visit some of our fabulous deep reefs.
We offer scuba diving, courses and snorkelling from tofo beach..
We have over 20 different reefs to choose from ranging from Lemon & Herb ( 18mtr shallow reefs ) through to Hot ( 25mtr deeper reefs )
In Tofo we are blessed enough to encounter giant manta rays that clean on tofo’s many impressive and abundantly colourful stations dotted perfectly along the outside edges of our walls, to the huge potato groupers and sometimes brindle bass that so curiously come to divers for an inquisitive look. Encounters of Marlin, sailfish, Giant barracuda, huge shoaling kingfish, many differing species of rays including the “ small eye stingray “ the largest and rarest stingray in the world, to name but a few, are all common occurrences on these outstanding reefs.
For the “ macro “ divers amongst us there are amazing opportunities to capture leaf fish, frog fish, impressive sea moths, banded pipefish and a wide variety of shrimps. The list is truly endless.
We dive conservatively and 2 minutes before deco on the most conservative computer.
No real season as we do get manta rays and whalesharks year round. This year we have had some super diving from Jan till June. Humpback whale season starts June til November , peaking august. Often see whales on scuba. Temp January through to April 27-30degrees, in winter June – October as low as 22degrees, October through to January approx. 24-26 degrees.
We need always to see cert cards and logbooks should they have. For PADI if no card we can check on the internet system. Divers need to be AOW and above and dove within 6 months of arriving. If not additional courses will have to be taken at additional price. I.E. deep adventure if open water diver or scuba review if longer than 6 months out of the water etc.
