Wonderful diving off Stone Town, on lovely dhows with delicious lunch. All the staff, crew and instructors were so friendly and helpful. Made me feel completely comfortable and safe in the water despite not having dived for two years. Small groups (low season) just 1 or 2 other divers (including instructor!) meant close attention, personal guidance and more freedom to... More

My family joined me in my diving adventure by doing some snorkelling as well. It was easy to book. I needed a refresher course which was simple and easy to do at the Dive Centre. The next day, we were picked up and taken to the set off point, and as we were boating, we hit the reef and the... More

We went snorkeling with One Ocean at Matemwe atoll and got the impression that the team was extremely professional and friendly and that the gear was in a very good conditions. The snorkeling was great and we managed to view so many different fish. It seems that they took us to an excellent spot!!

I took my PADI open water with Richard the instructor at the One Ocean centre at Stone Town. The teaching was excellent and I never once felt nervous in or under the water thanks to the calm and professional nature of the staff. The boat staff and the office staff are very friendly and helpful and it's nice to see... More

My wife and I took our PADI Open Water course with One Ocean and are very glad we did. Boko, (our instructor) was fantastic. We are/were a couple of rank amateurs and Boko’s competence, good humour and patience went a long way. In addition, Boko is from the area and a great source of information about the amazing natural wonders... More

We went diving for 2 days with One Ocean out of Matemwe Beach Village. It was the only dive centre we went with so we can't compare to others on the island. Our views were mixed. It was a professional dive centre with good equipment, a good boat, good instruction and the local staff were very friendly (although our dive... More

We had our first diving experience with the One Ocean Dive Center in Stone Town. The experience was excellent from start to finish. Special props to the lead divemaster, Faridu. We were able to see the corals (including a 100 year old shipwreck) and the fishes up close - and this was our first diving experience! Even snorkeling was well... More

I was on leave end of the ‘2013 in Zanzibar and had scheduled 5 x 2 dives with One Ocean Dive Center sometimes in advance. When I showed up at the dive center, no surprise, all was perfectly organized as expected. I was warmly welcomed by Julie and Sebastien who are the two dive masters running the dive center. The...

I've just finished a scubadiver course with Sebastian & Julie and I was extremely impressed with how well run the dive school is. Even though they were really busy, everything ran like clockwork. My pool skills and first few dives were one on one and everyone was very very patient with me (which I needed!). Beautifully run and highly recommended.
