Diving in Zanzibar
Paradise Beach Resort is a certified PADI diving centre. Our resort pool is prepared for diving courses. We offer a complete range of PADI scuba diving training classes from beginning to advanced courses. Enjoy our fun diving tours tailored to meet your individual needs.
Zanzibar is reputed to have some of the best diving in the world, and the coral reef structures that surround Unguja and Pemba ensure that the marine life is abundant.
Good visibility (20 - 60 metres) and a year-round average water temperature of 27°c ensure that you enjoy your Zanzibar diving experience, and also present an ideal opportunity for learning to dive or upgrading your diving qualification.
Diving in Zanzibar isn't restricted to beginners. Experienced scuba divers can enjoy exciting wall dives, night dives and drift dives. In deeper waters, lush coral gardens often stretch as far as the eye can see, and large gamefish (barracuda, kingfish, tuna and wahoo) hunt together with large Napoleonic wrasse, graceful manta rays and sharks. Shallower waters are the playground of tropical fish, including a huge variety of Indo-Pacific marine fauna.
As a certified PADI diving centre we ensure:
- Professional dive staff
- Well equipped boats. Important things to check for onboard include medical oxygen, first-aid facilities, radio communications, sufficient life jackets and back-up engine/s.
- Being a member of the reputable PADI training organisation.
Be a SAFE diver!
