Cape Maclear Scuba

We are employing a number of local and international diving instructors and Divemasters, Cape Maclear Scuba can offer you a huge variety of specialty dive courses and a wealth of information on diving here in Malawi and elsewhere around the world.

Using traditional wooden boats with 15 HP engines, all the dive sites are within a twenty-minute, pleasant boat ride from the lakeside school. Cylinders are filled by a Bauer electric compressor so the fresh, filtered air is always clean. Safety and fun are the dive team’s focus and their track record of zero dive accidents is strong proof of this. Your safety and enjoyment are the team’s number one concern.
