Day 2 - 7 Let's get geared up

The onsite professional and friendly team look forward to helping you get ready for your days diving in Zanzibar. Once you have been sized up for equipment, head down to the jetty to board the dive boat. Here in Zanzibar the tides vary greatly, so the method of boarding may also differ. If the tide is low, you could be taking a short walk along the beach to board. It all depends on the tidal movement on the day. Transport for anyone with impairment in mobility can be arranged.

On Your way…

The boats leave in the morning at 8:30am for two dives at two different locations. The Dive Point staff will help you to board the boats safely, ready to visit the best dive sites in Zanzibar. The trip to the first dive site takes approx. 25 minutes.

First dive

Your dive guide will help you with safety checks before entering the water and provide a dive briefing. The dive time is roughly 50 minutes, although this will depend on your air consumption.

Surface interval

To make the most of your diving in Zanzibar, the surface interval is spent on the boat. This allows you to take in the beauty of Mnemba Atoll and its turquoise waters. Tea, water, fruit and cake will be served. You can catch some sun rays on the front deck or relax in the shade whilst enjoying your break. Your dive guides will get everything ready for the second dive for you.

Second Dive

Once you are refreshed and rested, the boat will move to a different location. Here we will do our second dive of the day and then head to back to the dive center. The trip involves approximately 3 – 4 hours at sea. You can expect to be back at the dive centre around 1 – 2pm in the afternoon.
