Being a certified Open Water Diver, i opted to do my Advance Open Water Certification with Zanzibar Watersports. And the experience was really good. My instructor Nacho was simply excellent. He had a keen sense on safety and learning while sharing lots of local knowledge. The equipment is also in good condition, but the boats maybe something Zanzibar Watersports may... More

We only had one day for diving and chose Zanzibar Watersports. They took us to the island on the east side which meant an hour and a half slow boat drive. I'd recommend getting the fast boat if you're in a hurry. We were the only divers on the boat, so we had a private dive excursion.

We went for Discover Scuba Diving with them, the instructor was very patient and willing to go the extra mile to ensure a fantastic experience for us. I and my partner are not very confident with water sports, he still managed to show the amazing sealife at Mnemba. This was experience of lifetime, one that we will hold dear forever.... More

My sister and I initially did the discovery scuba dive with this company and liked it so much we decided to do our scuba certification with them. We had done discover scuba with other companies in Europe and this was the only one who told us the basic rule of scuba of breathing continuously and not holding your breath. The... More

We went on a half day snorkelling trip to Tumbatu and enjoyed every minute. You feel well looked after and they even gave us dive suits to wear as it was jelly fish season. We saw lots of fish and beautiful coral and were allowed plenty of time in the water. Well worth it.

We (three persons) booked two dives with a refresh because we did not scuba dive in a while. We got the refresh for free as well as some other 10 dollar discount which sounded really nice. We would do the refresh in the afternoon with the dives the next day. However, the instructor was not in so we were told... More

These guys really know what they're doing. We got great group rates for scuba diving, snorkelling, boat rides, a beach barbecue, everything. Friendly, competent staff, props to Shida and Fadil, amazing dive instructors and super cool guys. I wish there was a ten-star rating, they totally deserve it. Highly recommend them for anything.

We just finished taking a group of 22 students to Zanzibar and really cannot say enough positive about the owner and staff of Zanzibar Watersports. From our initial arrival and meeting on the island to plan our group activities to the training they gave our students in diving and snorkeling to even dealing with some challenging issues with taxis, Zanzibar...
