Fun Divers Zanzibar on Pemba Island | Your New Diving Destination in Paradise

Stay tuned as we unveil the exciting journey of opening our new dive center on Pemba Island!

In 2017, we turned a cherished dream into reality by opening the first locally owned and operated PADI Dive Resort in Zanzibar. Now, we’re excited to embark on a new chapter, expanding to Pemba Island! This island holds a deep significance for our owner, being the birthplace of both him and his parents, and playing a vital role in his family’s history. While Nungwi nurtured his childhood memories, Pemba holds a special place in his heart, and we’re thrilled to share our passion for diving in this beautiful location.
