Welcome to Likoma Island Divers- a registered PADI resort, located on Likoma Island, and surrounded by the pristine waters of Lake Malawi. Join our PADI instructors and dive into the most ecologically diverse fresh water environment in the world! We have courses to suit every level, from those first bubbles to the professional ranks of Divemaster.
Lake Malawi offers an incredible dive experience, with over 1000 different species of fish to encounter. Likoma Island is widely regarded as having the best diving on the Lake, both in terms of the diversity of fish species and their sheer abundance. Our dive sites offer spectacular underwater formations, as well as swim-throughs, vertical 30m walls, and even a rock carving. With Catfish up to 2m in length, mouthbreeders swallowing their young, and the occasional otter, Likoma is the perfect fresh water dive location.
