Something for every ability
With countless dive sites dotted around the coast and islets of Zanzibar, there’s an experience to suit every level. If you’ve never so much as snorkelled before, a Discover Scuba Diving course lets you give it a try without focusing on getting certified. You’ll learn the basics in the pool then head out to a colourful coral wall or sloping reef site with an experienced PADI instructor.
Those with Open Water certification will have a huge choice of sites to discover. Famous options close to Stone Town include Pinnacles, where bright coral clings to pillars and arches, and the Royal Navy Lighter wreck – a purposefully sunk boat swirling with schools of snappers.
