Zanzibar Diving and Snorkeling

Scuba Diving


Mnemba Atoll


Mnemba Atoll is the best place for Diving & Snorkeling in Unguja Island (Zanzibar), located north east coast of the Island. A Marine Reserve, this atoll features an easy dive down to about 20 meters and quite a bit of coral, you can also spot dolphins, whales, and sea turtles due to the deeper water in the area. Its area is well known for its fish life and you can expect to see lion fish, moray eels, stingrays and turtles swimming around in the shallows. If you venture further out the reef drops away into a big wall where you will see schools of giant trevally and emperor fish hunting, yellow snappers, barracuda and if you are lucky napoleon fish and turtles. Mnemba Atoll really offers you a stunning underwater world with schools of tropical reef fish, turtles, nudibranchs and beautiful hard and soft coral formations. Between the snorkeling times you can stay on the boats and taste fresh seasonal fruits.
