We were in Zanzibar November 2014 & I used One Ocean and thought the entire dive was good. We went past Mnemba into the most bluest water I have seen yet. The dive master Boca was really nice both above ground and underwater. I was with 2 other divers as we all had our PADI open water so overcrowding wasn't... More

We had no gear and let all in the store (included) Ok gear and we had no problems neither the group we traveled with. The dive boat was probably only 15 meters long, slow but the sea was high and rough and we probably could not have traveled faster than we did. The dive master informed us about the dive,... More

One Ocean is undoubtedly my favorite dive center in the whole world. Silvia at the Bluebay Resort and the team are outstanding. I've been diving with them for over 4 years and all I can day is that they are excellent. Safe, knowledgable, professional, friendly & funny. Most highly recommended!

I had spent some time corresponding with Silvia prior to my arrival in Africa, and her advice and helpfulness were very appreciated. When I arrived at the dive shop to check in, I met Silvia in person and she was a bubble of energy. I got to do my first day of dives with Harry, who was hilarious and was... More

From the booking (Sylvia was perticularly helpful throughout),induction, boat trip, dives and return to hotels everything was dealt with in a professional and friendly manner. I managed to see a turtle, scorpion fish, stone fish, frog fish, lots of... More

Managers Julie and Sebastian were really friendly and professional as were also others. On the way to the dive site they made the briefing and also... More

Had a very easy time arranging a pool-refresh course and a following divetrip in very short time and a a good price. I was taken out on my own to 2 good diving spots and enjoyed both trip, dives, lunch on the deck and good company by the staff. Thanks for a great experience.

We did a snorkelling session with One Ocean and had a great time. The guides were knowledgeable and most importantly fun. They pointed out everything from stone fish and lion fish that were impossible to spot to whole brightly coloured shoals of moorish idols that weren't. We were on a mixed boat with half divers half snorklers with 2 captains... More
