we have a 4-night package because the flights back to dar es salaam are all unpressurised and you are in danger of an embolism if you dive the day before. so we suggest 4 nights to allow 2 full days of diving and a dive on your day of arrival if the tides and your arrival flight work. all diving in the bay is tide-dependent. the diving is extremely varied with turtles, rays and over 460 species of fish and 54 genera of coral. depth is 18-28 m with walls, bommies and coral gardens. check out our kinasilodge website for the PDF download on the dive sites and the 4, 5, 7 and 10 night packages. welcome to mafia !
