Diving

Warm tropical waters, thriving tropical reefs

Overwhelming numbers of tropical fish proliferate on the coral gardens that form a lagoon around Ras Nungwi. The majestic whale shark migrates past us twice a year and humpback whales sometimes breach right outside the hotel. Dolphins are permanent residents often accompanying us on boat trips, jumping and diving with their young.

The secluded beach at Ras Nungwi is also popular with turtles who return year after year to hatch their young. Nearby Mnemba Atoll has been declared a marine conservation area and offers a unique opportunity for both divers and snorkellers to experience the best of Zanzibar’s underwater world.

With warm tropical waters and visibility often over thirty metres, Ras Nungwi is the perfect diving destination, with plenty to excite professionals and beginners alike. Dives are conducted daily, frequenting over twenty stunning sites. For more remote areas and private charter dives, we either use spacious, comfortable dive dhows or a twin-hulled speedboat.

The fully equipped watersports centre is a five star PADI facility staffed by a team of dedicated professionals who focus on service and safety to make your diving experience truly memorable. The complete range of PADI courses is offered by our resident instructors.
