Diving and Snorkeling
The waters of the Indian Ocean and surrounding Unguja teem with thousands of species of fish and coral reefs. In every corner of Zanzibar, you can find a diving base offering dives on local reefs. However, we recommend the underwater world located on Zanzibar’s northeast coast, i.e. the reefs surrounding famous Mnemba atoll. These waters are a marine reserve where you have the opportunity to encounter turtles, nudibranchs, clownfish, crabs, dolphins, and reef sharks. All this is available from our friendly diving center, “Dive Point Zanzibar,” a PADI dive center (Professionalism and Security). Dive with the best! Diving pictures – Adam Sokólski
A trip with Safari Blue is the most epic adventure on the Indian Ocean surrounding Zanzibar. Take a several-hour cruise with the professional and licensed Safari Blue crew on traditional dhow boats. Enjoy snorkeling and a delicious lunch on an islet in the middle of the ocean. It’s truly a blue safari!
There is a barrier reef along the entire east coast of Zanzibar, and the wind from the Indian Ocean creates ideal conditions for kitesurfing. There are two wind seasons per year. The Kusi wind blows from mid-June to mid-October with a force of 12 – 20 knots (south to north). The Kazkazi wind occurs from mid-December until the end of February, and sometimes even until mid-March, with a force of 10-18 knots. We work with several kitesurfing centers, which we recommend depending on where you are staying on the island. They all belong to IKO, the International Kiteboarding Organization, which associates professional instructors of our favorite sport. Zanzibar – a perfect place to learn to kitesurf!
