Run By Local

Our unique little PADI Dive Resort is run by friendly Zanzibaris born and raised in Nungwi, who experienced the reefs around northern Zanzibar as local fishermen for many years before.

PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor Cholo Ussi is appreciated by customers for his deep knowledge and experience in diving, his excellent care for their safety as well as his personal appearance and talent to teach as a PADI instructor.

Having grown up at the center of traditional dhow ship building on the fishermen beach of Nungwi, FUN DIVERS ZANZIBAR are rooted in their local culture and strive for both marine conservation in their local community and the growth of their local economy.
