We offer daily excursions to the best dive sites of Zanzibar, which can be reached in 5 to 45 minutes from our base at Nungwi Beach.

Great local Diving Crew, very friendly and great vibe and atmosphere. New and good equipment. The swimming pool for beginners and refresh courses is quite dirty, probably not cleaned in a little while and no showers on location. You can pay with card and you’ll get some fruits and water. The dives felt a bit rushed, no briefing and quick water entrance and descend. First dive site was cool and well guided, but a bit short.. On the second dive we got some current and missed the dive site and just wandered around for 30min then ascended and drove with the boat a bit further to dive another 10min. So both dives about 40min. I was surprised they tried to make up for it and get back in the boat to dive further away again so thank you very much for that, appreciate it. All in all a nice simple experience and saw some great new fishes :)

Thank you Leon for your review. We are surprised to learn that you were not satisfied with your dives. For our feedback talk on site you seemed to be happy :) Our business development plan foresees investment towards scuba equipment and then upgrading our facilities. To install a shower for our customers is part of the plan as soon as funding is available. Due to the water scarcity on the island, fresh water is purchased and supplied to us by water tanker. The wells in the village are for the use of the local residents only. Because of the effect of the pandemic and travel restrictions, the tourism industry have been hard hit. Yet we managed to build a fresh water training pool equipped with a cleaning system and were able to purchase a water tank to enable fresh water supply for our diving centre. Upon request, we would gladly have supplied you a bucket of fresh water for an impromptu fresh water rinse after your dives. Our fresh water training pool was not operational when you walked by to take a look at it. Since we had not received any booking that would require the use of the pool, we had no need to clean it that early in the morning. Due to the location of the facility in an unsheltered beach front area, the wind carries sand and leaves into the pool in a short time. We would like to reassure you that all our customers arriving for scuba refresher and confined water sessions will enter a freshly cleaned training pool at Fun Divers Zanzibar! We hope to see you next time for diving with us!

We enjoyed 2 dives with the Fun Divers team and it was great. Serious diving team with training in the pool the day before the dives for briefing and practice. The spots we dived in on the D-day were amazing and they even stopped us on the way back to enjoy snorkeling with the dolphins. Amazing ! Fruits and water offered on the boat after the dives. We highly recommend them. Thanks again a lot ++

My son (12) did his open water course with Chole and the team, we later did lots of dives as a family. We had a great time. A professional team who teach in a relaxed and easy manner - no stress, which is important for new divers. Even the local dive sites around the North of Zanzibar were great. Thank you!
