The Barra area is noted for the whale sharks and manta ray species that can be found in its ocean twelve months of the year and beside these magnificent creatures the waters teem with life.

Apart from diving for the pleasure and sport Tofu has a research centre, where research is aimed at studying specifically the whale sharks and manta rays that are found in these waters. If you are interested in learning more or want to offer support, contact us for details.

Dr. Andrea Marshall, the senior resident marine scientist, has discovered a new species of manta ray along the coast of Tofu in 2009.
This species has never before been recorded anywhere else in the world and seem to be endemic to these shores.

Join Dr. Marshall and her team for a dive with the manta rays or whale sharks and make this an experience of a lifetime!
