Zanzibar boasts some of the most pristine and unspoilt coral reefs in the Indian Ocean. These vibrant coral colonies lie under clear waters with up to 26ºC (79 ºF) temperatures, and perfect underwater sights of up to 40 metres (131 feet).
These views are particularly vivid off the Coast of Unguja Island, the main island of Zanzibar, and Pemba Island, known fondly as the Green Island. Boasting calm waters and a wide variety of colourful marine species, they make up one of the top dive sites in the world.
Diving in Zanzibar features shallow coral gardens and walls that start at 30 metres deep, with close to two metre spiral corals and high barrel sponges. Encounter neon-tinted fish, such as the blue potato grouper, the indigo Napoleon fish, the deep red cubera snapper, and the green blocked turtle.
Dive alongside a wide range of marine wildlife, bright blue water drop off’s, and shining, strong and shallow reefs. Tough and supple coral patches sustain a rise of reef, tropical fish, and many other sea residents.
Diving in Zanzibar will prove to be an awe-inspiring experience, with some of the healthiest reefs in the Indian Ocean, making this a must and an unforgettable diving destination.
