Zanzibar offers a captivating underwater world that beckons adventurers to explore its depths through scuba diving. With its crystal-clear turquoise waters, Zanzibar boasts an array of stunning dive sites teeming with vibrant marine life and colorful coral reefs.
As you descend beneath the surface, you’ll be greeted by a kaleidoscope of tropical fish, including angelfish, parrotfish, and butterflyfish, darting among the coral formations. The warm Indian Ocean currents provide excellent visibility, allowing divers to marvel at the intricate ecosystems and diverse marine species that call Zanzibar home.
From shallow reefs suitable for beginners to exhilarating drift dives and awe-inspiring underwater walls for experienced divers, Zanzibar caters to all skill levels. Discover hidden caves, explore shipwrecks, and encounter majestic creatures such as sea turtles, dolphins, and even the occasional whale shark.
Best dive sites in Zanzibar & difficulty levels:
|Wattabomi Reef||Beginner -Intermediate
Depth 5-20 m
|This is a great reef for all experience levels; it starts in 5 m of water at Mnemba’s Moray Eel City, which is covered in lion fish, scorpion fish, moray eels and darting inquisitive anthias. This site has a gentle slope which helps the diver decide which depth suits their experience.|
|The Small Wall||Intermediate-advanced
Depth 5-40 m
|This is a great drift dive for the more experienced diver. The reef starts shallow and slopes down to 30 m, where it drops down vertically to 45-50 m. Several Napoleon wrasses live in this area, and sometimes white tip reef sharks can be found on the bottom.|
|The Big Wall||Advanced-Expert
Depth 12-90 m
|We usually drop in blue water, and after a short swim arrive at the wall itself. The top of the wall starts at 40-50 m, and drops to 80-90 m. When the currents are favorable, large schools of fish can be found here (barracudas, bigeye trevally jacks), as well as some white tip reef sharks, black tip reef sharks and Napoleon wrasses.|
