They were very organised and are situated very close to the hotels. We signed up at the Maru Maru Hotel office. Their equipment is in good order (note though that no nitrox dives are available anywhere on the island) and the staff were well trained and very friendly. The boats are in excellent condition and the snacks in between the... More

It's one of the most recommended dive centers in the area. Run by a German lady, it's organized, safe and reaches all the best spots. Great staff with local Divemasters with a huge experience on the area. The boats and all the safety measures are top quality.

I only did two dives with East Africa Diving and in general I can say that they are professional and all gear seemed to be in very good conditions. We did two shallow dives at Mnemba Atoll which were nothing special, but that was partly due to the fact that one of the divers was not being able to descend... More

My wife, 12 year old son and I chose East Africa Diving Centre for our Open Water Diver course. Morgane, our instructor, was very patient with us while being diligent to ensure we undertook the specific training tasks to the required standard. Following successful completion of the course we then went on to undertake six additional dives. Delene and Michael... More

Did a 4 day package. Excellent dive masters. Well run dive operation. Types of boats. Dhow or zodiac. Back roll entry. Mnema island 30 minutes. Tumbatu 1 hour. Local sights only 10-20 minutes. Sights are beautiful. Lots of fish life, healthy hard and soft corals. Lots of macro, nudibranch's etc. Particularly liked the different leaf fish. Note that there can... More

Slightly more expensive compared to some other PADI centers in the area. However, the service and equipment were impeccable. Had a fun experience while feeling completely safe from start to end. I've rarely experience a dive master being as compliant with safety procedures and good conduct as our dive master at East Africa Dicing Centre. Personally I don't mind spending... More

We were diving as family 4 days with East Africa diving In August it was with 26 degree Celsius not warm but especially the speed boat trips to Mnemba were really great. Delene& Michael are very helpful Absolutely recommended

My husband did two morning dives, and I came along to snorkel. It is not the cheapest diving option in the neighbourhood, but that reflects more than fairly the top caliber of this outfit - everything was 100% professionally organized. The equipment was top-end and looked to be perfectly maintained, including the snorkling gear for me. You could really tell... More

Dived with these guys last week and could not have been more impressed with their set up and attention to detail. Very professional and the only team in Nungwi to dive with in my opinion.

I dived once here, and my boyfriend 3 times during our stay. (We were only there 6 days - that's how much he loved it). Neil and Michelle were fantastic. They were friendly and gave thorough safety briefings. East Africa diving centre are also one of the dive centres with a rib... Meaning we got out to the best dive... More
