Dive With Us

We felt we had the right dive operator after our first email conversation and we were right. Our Safari operator gave us Fun Divers as a contact when I asked WAT rep Joyce for a Zanzibar operator. They were close to our hotel and pick up was no problem. We explained that even though we have been diving for 20 years, we only go once a year and might be a little green. They suggested a free review on our first dive and it was settled. After going thru the skills, we began our dive but buoyancy and technique needed practice. Our dive master Bakari had assured us that he would be there the whole time to assist and look out for us. Everything "poli poli" Swahili for slowly. It turned out we did need a lot of looking after and he was right there when needed. Our first dive site was Mnemba island which had some wonderful reefs and lots of protected other aquatic life. Octopus, Snake eels, Moray eels and others. The place is crowded but mostly w snorkelers who only matter when you surface. After such good care was taken of us the first 2 dives, we had Bakari take us on 2 more later in the week. The whole team including the boat driver and other dive masters worked well together and all we had to do was gear checks and go. When we forgot our dive booties, the owner sent a driver to the store to get some socks so we wouldn't get blisters. No problem. It was this level of attentiveness and over and beyond service that makes this dive operator one of the best I have worked with in a long while. You will be very pleased when you choose Fun Divers Zanzibar to be your dive operator too.

I recently spent an unforgettable five days scuba diving in the stunning waters of Nungwi, Zanzibar. My dive guide, Shauri, was truly exceptional. His meticulous attention to my dive gear and unwavering commitment to safety made each dive not only secure but profoundly enjoyable. Shauri introduced me to the best dive sites, revealing the incredible diversity of marine life in the Indian Ocean. Our boat captain, Ali, was nothing short of a master navigator. His skill and expertise in maneuvering the open ocean were awe-inspiring. Beyond his seafaring prowess, Ali also shared a delightful skill with me—how to cut a pineapple like a seasoned pro. The warmth and hospitality of the people of Nungwi have left a lasting impression on me, and I'm deeply grateful for this extraordinary experience. I highly recommend this diving adventure to anyone looking to explore the beauty of Zanzibar's underwater world.
