Zanzibar’s Islands is surrounded by the warm currents of the equator.
The coral reefs offer exhilarating scuba diving and snorkeling within a short boat ride from most beaches. Especially on the east coast snorkeling is very suitable for beginners as great visibility (according to season 10-40 meters), warm temperatures (never less than 24 degrees) and tidal lagoons protected by the barrier reef give ideal conditions.
All snorkelling trips organized with us are accompanied by an experienced guide that will help you find marine life, answer any questions you have about the fish and ensure that you are safe and comfortable. The equipment used is of top standard. To aid those who are less comfortable in the water we have buoyancy aids available at no extra charge and the guide always takes a life ring.
Snorkeling is part of day trips such as safari blue and free spirit snorkeling trips and we recommend a visit to the uniques marine protection area round chumbe island.
