What to see

Zanzibar’s warm equatorial waters attract a myriad of ocean creatures that habituate both the reef and the deeper pelagic waters. Common favourites among divers are blue spotted rays, crocodile fish, ribbon eels and dolphins.

For advanced divers that wander into the outer reefs and deeper waters there is the opportunity to see barracuda, white tip, black tip reef and whale sharks. In addition Zanzibar is a magnet for macro creatures with various species of nudibranchs, frogfish and ghost pipefish. Night diving on the islands is recommended with sighting of hunting Bluefin trevally and honeycomb morays.

Description

Buccaneer Diving is East Africa's leading dive company and a PADI 5* IDC centre, on Paje Beach in Zanzibar.

Whether you’ve never breathed underwater before or you’re a seasoned diver looking to explore the picturesque reefs of Zanzibar, Buccanner Diving's expert instructors will make your trip the best yet. From customized boats to luxury accommodation options, you’ll experience the best Zanzibar has to offer.  

The center offers a selection of over 20 local dive sites suited to all experiences, levels and tastes. These vary from inner-lagoon dives, sloping outer-reef dives, and wall dives. Some of which are further afield and some require diving experience of an advanced level. All of the dives are drift dives with a boat following the dive group for support. 

There are three dive sites within the reef just 15 minutes boat ride from our base in Paje and Jambiani. Because the lagoon is within the barrier reef it is protected from the outside elements, creating calmer conditions for both marine life and divers! The depth ranges from 6 m to 22 m.
