Our efficient and charming SCUBA instructors, Rob Assad and Patrick Phiri, have just certified their six hundredth and one hundredth PADI divers respectively. Well done, guys – that’s a lot of teaching and diving! So come and dive with Rob and Patrick, knowing you are in safe hands.

Kayak Africa has been operating its Dive School in Cape Maclear, Lake Malawi National Park since 1996. The dive school, Frogman Divers, is right on the beach at Cape Maclear, two doors down from our basecamp. It offers all PADI courses from Discover Scuba to Dive Master. Classes are small and personal so divers get all the guidance and attention they need. A track record of Zero dive accidents in 12 years is strong proof of this.

Cape Maclear is one of the best places to do a SCUBA dive certification, as there are magnificent dives just offshore on Thumbi Island and just off Mumbo and Domwe Islands further out.
