Zanzibar Islands Unguja, Pemba & Mafia Islands
For those who are certified and beginners can enjoy scuba diving and snorkeling trips in Unguja’s Mnemba island conservation area. Mnemba Island is a popular scuba diving and snorkeling site, with a variety of corals and associated species, as well as occasional sightings of larger species such as turtles and dolphins. The marine reserve comprises four distinct habitats which are home to a diverse array of Indian Ocean wildlife; nesting place of threatened green turtles, humpback whales, three species of dolphin whale sharks and approximately 600 species of coral reef fish. The reef is wonderfully shallow making it perfect for seeing the under water world. Batfish are known to follow snorkelers and divers; much of the marine life reacts calmly to human presence optimizing the opportunity for exploring their world as they swim alongside.

The diving round Pemba is nothing but breathtaking. The untouched coral reef surrounding the entire island makes Pemba one of the top diving sites in the world. Pemba has the most spectacular and healthy reefs in East Africa. They are coral covered walls, coral strewn reef slopes, and enormous, healthy bommies and fans that are surrounded by reef fish. Dive sites are simply stunning. Ribbon eels, fire dartfish and leaf-fish can be found on many of the reefs. The shallow coral reefs are ideal for snorkeling if you have yet to qualify for diving. For those who wish to learn to dive, the calm waters of Pemba are an ideal learning ground.
