Escape to Zanzibar this Autumn

Published

on

October to December is a fantastic time for a diving adventure in Zanzibar. The Indian Ocean waters are around 27 degrees Celsius and while the seas tend to be calmer, the visibility often exceeds 30 metres. Besides the rich diversity of marine life, there are chances to see migrating Humpback Whales around Mnemba Island.

Local PADI Dive Resort Fun Divers Zanzibar is offering divers a choice of scuba deals until the end of this year. Fun Divers Zanzibar is the only locally owned dive operation in Zanzibar. Their team of friendly Zanzibaris grew up in the fishing village of Nungwi and experienced the reefs around northern Zanzibar as local fishermen for many years before. Diving is offered only in small groups to allow an exclusive and personalised underwater experience.

The following special offers are available for diving until the end of 2020:

Free Scuba Dive

Aimed at certified divers who are keen to do three dives a day! Get an extra dive for free (same excursion) when booking a double dive in 2020.

Diving 2020

Save 20% when pre-booking dive packages, snorkeling trips and PADI courses for 2020. When booking a dive package, certified divers can also enjoy a free dhow sunset cruise from Nungwi Beach as well.

Mnemba, Tumbatu, Nungwi, Leven Bank and more

The marine reserves of Zanzibar Island offer a huge choice of sites to explore and the best dive sites can be reached in 5 to 45 minutes from Fun Divers Zanzibar. Whether you prefer colourful coral walls, sloping reefs, plate corals, bommies or terraced coral gardens, the variety of wall and reef dives suit every level of diver qualification. There is a wide range of hard and soft corals and more than 500 marine species. It is usual to encounter pods of dolphins, sea turtles, tropical reef fish, a large variety of macro marine life, extraordinary sea creatures and, on occasion, white tip reef sharks.
