Zanzibar is a flat, palm-clad coral atoll surrounded by a shallow warm sea. Water temperatures average between 25 and 29 degrees C and visibility ranges from 20m to 60m (200ft). With conditions like this the world of Big ‘Marine’ Game will clearly be in view!
A series of fringing and atoll reefs provide suitable diving from beginner to advanced with depths from 6m to 35m. Shallow coral reefs, sloping banks and vertical drop-offs with hard and soft corals and over 350 species of Indo-Pacific marine fauna await you. Whale sharks, manta and eagle rays, bottlenosed, spinner and common dolphins, sailfish and marlin are also found. In deeper waters, lush coral gardens often stretch as far as the eye can see and large pelagic game fish - barracuda, kingfish, tuna and wahoo hunt together with large napoleonic wrasse.
