This was mostly not the fault of the instructor, but circumstances made it a pretty awful experience. First of all due to scheduling issues I waited for more than hour just to meet the instructor at someone else's pool. A previous client was in the pool with him and not picking up the instructions very fast which resulted in me... More

I got in touch before travelling to Zanzibar to book my 4 open water dives to complete my Padi open water qualification. I could have waited until I arrived as they were very accommodating. After choosing the days that I would like to dive, the staff at East Africa Diving made me feel very confident in their instructing and competence.... More

Me and my husband have done Discover Scuba through this company, recommended by our hotel. Our instructor Malu taught us all basic stuff in hotel's pool and following day we went to Mnemba to dive and snorkel. I always wanted to dive but felt a bit anxious as it was my first time. Malu took a brilliant care of me... More

Unlike the other dive centres in Nungwe East African is a slick, prefossional, well equipped operation. They are not laid back, so you can be. They have quick comfortable well maintained semirigid dive boats. While it might quaint to dive from a dhow, its not practical. East Africans dive masters were attentive, experienced and made sure the dives were about... More

We had our own equipment with us but from what I saw they have good quality equipment. They are one of the first dive centers in Nungwi so have a good reputation and they... More

Very professional dive center with experienced dive masters. With my only eight logged dives, I am quite unexperienced, so I was a bit anxious when I booked my dives. The day before we went out, I had a refresher in the pool. The instructor was superunderstanding, did all the regular exercises and made sure that I was fit to go... More
