Diving on Pemba Island;

Pemba Island’s waters are home to some of the world’s most beautiful and diverse coral reefs. With its clear visibility, you can expect to see an array of marine life, including sea turtles, barracudas, and reef sharks. If you’re a beginner, we offer beginner courses, advanced instruction and guided day or night dives and provide all of the equipment required. For more experienced divers, we offer a variety of dive sites.  Most of our dive sites are wall dives. At present, the West and South coast of the Pemba Island has been explored more often than East coast because it is close and easily accessible to the mainland.

One of our most popular dive sites on Pemba Island is Misali Island. It is the nearest dive and snorkeling spot from Fundu lagoon. It takes about 15-20 minutes on our speed boats. The first and the last impression of this island is the colour of the water, which ranges from a vivid turquoise in the shallows to deep indigo blue, where land falls away. Misali Island is covered by a pristine diversity of corals and marine life.
