Zanzibar is exotic in so many ways. This small island was once the center for traders from India, Arabia and Africa. Apart from ivory and spices, slaves where once traded in Stone Town. History is still very visible in the winding alleys of this town and you must allow yourself to "get lost" and carried away. But... Exotic is also the diving! With all year round warm weather and great visibility you get an amazing experience of the Zanzibar marine life. In the coral gardens, caves, gentle slopes and walls all around the coast of the island you can expect to see a great variety of reef fish.
In addition, you have a number of sites on the outer reef within a 25-minute boat ride of the dive center, offering a wide variety of bigger fish like king fish, yellow fin tuna, barracudas, reef sharks, turtles, napoleon fish and from time to time dolphins. But, the biggest and the best - but only in season - humpback whales! That would be something for your logbook...
On the day of arrival, your equipment will be fitted and packed for the following days of diving; the rest of the day is left for exploring on land and settling in. The days consist of diving until early afternoon on the sites around Zanzibar. All dives are dived from boat and are arranged according to weather and requests. Please check with the dive center what dives will be done the day before they are conducted. There will be no refund on dives not used. Check out at noon.
The longer option with 8 dives spread out on 4 days of diving, 1 day of arriving and 4 nights of accommodation. The dive sites will vary depending on weather and experience level.

The hostel is within 5 minutes walk to restaurants, bars, coffeeshops, shops, kite centers, and public transport. But above all, you are just a stone’s throw away from the sugar-white sand and turquoise-water of Paje's glorious beach, which you can see from the swimming pool!
