Some of the best SCUBA diving in Lake Malawi!

Diving in Lake Malawi National Park

Previously known as Frogman Divers, Cape Maclear SCUBA began operating as a dive school in Cape Maclear, Lake Malawi National Park in 1996. We operate from premises next to famous landmark, Mr Stevenís Rest House. The team consists of instructors Rob Assad and Patrick Phiri, dive master Louis Chitsulo, and boatmen, Sign and Watson.
We dive out of Cape Maclear using traditional wooden boats with 15 HP engines and all the dive sites are within a twenty-minute, pleasant boat ride from the lakeside school.
Cape Maclear SCUBA offer all PADI courses from Discover Scuba to Dive Master. Classes are small and personal so you get all the guidance and attention you need.

Info Pack

Our Gear

The school uses T-ONE Scuba Pro BCDís and new Scuba Pro 5mm wetsuits, so no diver at Frogmanís should ever get cold. Cylinders are filled by a Bauer electric compressor so the fresh, filtered air is always clean.
Safety and fun are the dive teamís focus and their track record of zero dive accidents is strong proof of this. Your safety and enjoyment are the teamís number one concern.
