About diving in Zanzibar North Region

by Scubacrowd

The Zanzibar Archipelago is located on the East coast of Africa, in the Indian Ocean. It is composed of two main islands surrounded by a few small islets. The archipelago is reputed to have dive sites of outstanding quality and an abundant marine life, due to the coral reef which surrounds Unguja, the largest island of Zanzibar. Diving in Zanzibar is accessible to all divers, from beginner to advanced who will enjoy some great wall and night dives. The marine life is not to be forgotten, as the water gets deeper, you encounter endless coral gardens, a large variety of fish, such as barracudas, tuna, kingfish, manta rays and sharks.

Diving conditions in Zanzibar's waters are quite good, as the visibility varies from 20 to 60 metres with a year-round average water temperature of 27ºC. The ideal conditions to enjoy your dive and eventually get higher scuba diving certifications.

Zanzibar can be reached by plane, with a couple of African airlines operating international flights to the island or other international airlines operating flights to Dar Es Salam.
