Tufi's Scuba Diving - Tufi's outer reef experience is unsurpassed with a choice of dozens of world-class dive sites. The fjords are excellent for macro diving with gobies, nudibranch, shrimps and clams. Because there is very little current movement in the fjords, many sponges and coral species grow prolifically. You can also dive the famous Dutch cargo ship the "S Jacob" or "Blackjack," an intact B17 bomber, as specialty charter dives. Spectacular marine life is in abundance everywhere: schooling barracuda and reef fish, hammerheads, reef sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, grouper and cruising pelagic as well as soft and hard corals. Experience a pristine marine environment, unspoiled.
