SCUBA DIVING TOUR EXPERIENCE IN ZANZIBAR WITH AFRICANMECCA
The island of Zanzibar and the coral reefs around it are distinct exploratory locations for snorkeling and diving. With tropical climes maintaining the warmth of the Indian Ocean water from 75-94 F (24-29 C) degrees, it is ideal for the proliferation of an awesome variety of coral that in turn supports an equally diverse range of more than 400 species of fish and other marine life.
On your scuba diving trip in Zanzibar with AfricanMecca, you can sight green and hawksbill turtles, playful dolphins and also humpback whales in the months of July through October and also sometimes in November as they migrate along ancient routes.
The shallow depths of the water range from ten to forty meters allowing the sunlight to filter through lighting up an ethereal world where colorful fish, ribbon eels, barracudas, octopus, blue spotted rays, moray eels, green turtles, nudibranchs, whip gobies, seahorses, pipefish to name a few, play among the coral. You might also chance to spot black-tipped and white-tipped reef sharks.
October to March welcomes the arrival of the plankton-eating whale sharks; though Mafia Island is the best place to spot and swim with them as they are regularly tracked by the Kitu Kiblu research crew. The reefs around Zanzibar are suitable for PADI divers with all levels of experience from the amateur “Open Water” explorers to the more experienced veterans.
You can go wall diving, follow the seemingly unending reef lines of zigzagging coral bommies or check out the wrecks around Stone Town. As you sightsee the island of Zanzibar on your beach holiday, you will learn of the efforts being taken by the Tanzanian and Zanzibari authorities to protect this incredible marine world. They have banned fishing at the Mnemba Atoll Marine Park and Chumbe Island Coral Park, so the reef and its many denizens are allowed to multiply without the threat of overfishing.
Note Chumbe only permits snorkeling. The proceeds from the dive and snorkel fees you pay are diverted for the upliftment of the local fishing communities but also for the protection of the surrounding coral reef ecology.

The Zanzibar Stone Town tour guide was superlative. He was outstanding and gave us undivided attention. We felt that was great value and to be escorted round the market place and slave stations was like walking in a living museum.
