I had a pleasure to dive at Mnemba Atoll with Spanish Dancer Divers. Beautiful underwater marine life. Not the best but somewhere after Red Sea and Mauritius. It's a marine park - you'll be ask for a $30-35 supplement.

We had a nice dive here, but for our expectation the corral was not very colorful and the fish were 'hiding'. Our snorkling party did see some dolphins.

Crowded with other boats and other snorkelers, looking at the same few fish. This place ought to be teeming with fish! Instead it is filled with dead/dying coral and few species or numbers of fish. An expensive, long boat ride (90 minutes each way) for...More

If you plan to Snorkel or Dive in Zanzibar this is the place to go! I wouldn't take a trip to a different part of the island for such an experience if you haven't first went here.
