Situated on the beautiful Kendwa Beach we were welcomed by the Leticia who instantly made us feel welcome. The little bar is set up overlooking the beautiful beach and has a great laid back atmosphere. We did parasailing, which was great fun and our driver was easy to understand and a good laugh. We loved the place and the atmosphere... More

Our first impression of ZP Ocean Sports was WOW!!! The owners, Shayne and Leticia are incredibly welcoming and friendly. They are professionals in what they do but full of life and fun. The equipment is fantastic and the very well looked after. Their staff are friendly and full of smiles. I can honestly say that when in Zanzibar this is... More

This concept is a new and awesome idea to have the "real scuba diving" experience without any gear or qualifications. Its is a floating air compressor compressing air to up to 4 people each with their own pipe of oxygen. The floater follows you around as you explore the reef for a timeless experience. We first went for a single... More

This has moved to Kendwa beach last year. Though the approach road to the site is bad, but the activities by Shane & Leticia and team are awesome. We took the banana rides & parasailing and the experience was mind blowing. I recommend this as a 'Must have' experience during their zanzibar trip

I was too scared because it was my first time diving, and I already hated snorkelling! 😄 you can say I'm a wuzz, but the staff's friendly but professional manner made me go for it. Shane and his team were really great! Omari was very helpful and will check you if you're comfortable in the water. Great value for money!... More

We had a great time on our tour with this company and really recommend them because of their professionalism and genuine concern for their customers. Also, they're just really nice guys! My wife, sister and me were recently in Zanzibar and wanted to go diving and snorkelling, as we had heard they were some great sites on the island. We... More

When in Zanzibar, you want to go diving. We looked through a few different dive shops and decided to go with ZP. Shayne, Leticia & the whole staff were simply put great, very friendly and knowledgable. ZP recently opened a second location on Kendwa beach which we used. The equipment was brand new and in pristine condition, they also had... More

they have opened last December, the equipment is new, and the activities well organised. I went diving with them for 3 weekends during my volunteer period in Zanzibar and I really enjoyed my experience. They have also a good snack bar with delicious sandwiches.

Very professional and affordable. The lunch was a nice break from our average hotel food! I will recommend these water activities to anyone who is looking for some excitement during their stay. The new owners have a very hands on approach management style, which is needed for these type of activities. The bathrooms were even in top condition and very... More

Do not even think about doing one of the activities if you are staying a short time in Zanzibar! They waste your time promising the taxi will be there at a certain time only to be waiting for almost half an hour towards the activity centre and back. Also I do not recommend the banana boat since they purposely try... More
