Zanzibar Scuba Diving Snorkeling Day Tour in Zanzibar takes place at Nungwi fishing village – the perfect Scuba Diving destination, with plenty to excite professionals and beginners alike.
Ras Nungwi village lies 60 kilometres from the Zanzibar airport and ‘Old Stone Town.
Here marine life is abundant with Good visibility (20 – 60 metres) and a year round average water temperature of 27 degrees ‘Celsius ensure that you enjoy your Zanzibar Scuba diving experience.
We offer the best diving in East Africa for small groups of experienced divers. The day before we will confirm with you the pickup time for the shuttle bus for the next day.
The drive from Stone Town to Ras Nungwi is a scenic one and half hours. On arrival we will start with filling in the forms, try the equipment and we need to see the certification cards.
Depending of the tides we will leave by boat (30 minutes) or by bus (30 minutes bumpy ride) when it is low tide. We keep the groups as small as possible and it depends of your qualification in which group you are diving.
All groups are always diving with a PADI instructor or Dive Master who will do a good and informative dive briefing before each dive.
We do maximum 1 hour dive, 1 hour surface interval and then the 2nd dive of maximum 1 hour. In the surface interval we will have some Zanzibar snacks, fruits and spice tea and we relax on the boat.
The first day we will choose an easy dive (depending of the certification and your last dive). What you can expect to see is Green turtles, Moray eels, Giant trevallies, stingrays, frogfish, white tip sharks, lion fish and of course the Bottlenose Dolphins.
If you are lucky you can swim with them in between the dives, but there is a strict no touching and no chasing policy. We will return to the dive centre depending of the tides with the bus or boat trip.
At the dive centre we will log the dives, check the fish books and our drivers will return the guests back to the Hotel.

Zanzibar Scuba Diving Snorkeling Day Tour Information
Depth : As always, depths vary by location. Most diving is well within recreational limits
Skill Level: Beginners through advanced divers will find something incredible in Tanzania
Scuba Gear: It’s always a good idea to bring as much of your dive gear as possible but equipment hire is also available
Visibility : Running from good to excellent throughout Tanzania’s Indian Ocean sites, visibility can reach 30 metres/100 feet.
Currents : The currents vary by location, but range from virtually nonexistent to strong at dive sites off Zanzibar and Pemba.
Water Temperature : Being close to the equator means water temperatures are consistently about 27º C/80º F. Courtesy Unguja Divers
Featured Creatures : Myriad Indian Ocean reef fish, ribbon eels, fire dartfish, chevron barracuda, yellowfin tuna and giant groupers in Pemba.
Length of Stay: Although it depends on your time and budget, you’ll want to spend enough time here to add incredible land excursions to your dive vacation.
Dive Season : Generally speaking, September through March is the best time to dive East Africa because the winds and dive conditions are at their best. You can almost always experience great diving at Zanzibar and Pemba’s sheltered sites, while Tanzania sees heavy rains in April and May
Weather: Since it’s just below the equator, the only discernible seasons are dry and wet. The tropical climate in the major dive areas means you’ll rarely see temperatures drop below 20º C/68º F and easily soaring to 35-38º C/95-100ºF in Dar-es-Salaam
Transportation: Domestic airlines, trains and buses are the best ways to get around Tanzania. Driving is generally discouraged due to the poor road conditions and other hazards
