Berhart reserved my dive planning spots well before I arrived in Zanzibar. The dive crew provided water and snacks on the way too and from the dive sites, which are all simply incredible. The crew hooks up the regulators, BC's, and checks everything prior to each dive, including helping divers put on their gear. I cannot recall any dive operator... More

We had a perfect diving trip to the mnemba marine park with "diving poseidon": Ilse & Bernhard. equipement is 1st class level, boat-crew is very service-orientated and experienced with the see and the navigation. The owners are personally involved and guide you through the whole day by themselves. It is like diving with good old friends. Very good atmosphere. So... More

We did 9 dives with Poseidon at the end of October and it was great! The service Ilse and Bernhard provide is really good - the equipment is in a very good condition, the boat is comfortable, the groups are not too big, the crew does all the work (real vacation!;) and between the dives you're awarded with delicious fruit....

Great team. We especially liked that the refresher course was offerred for free if you booked a dive with them thereafter. This is great value as most of the other dive centres charge 30$ for a refresher. Good safety and helpful staff.

Diving Poseidon is THE dive group in Nungwi. They were incredibly responsive during the planning of our vacation, and when things unfortunately didn't work out at the hotel we had booked, they did their best to help us get into a more comfortable setting. As a PADI operation, they value a "hands off" approach to the sea life, which is... More

I highly recommend this diving company. I had not dived before and was a little nervous before I started taking the scuba diving certificate. The couple who owns the diving Company are from Austria and they are experienced divers and speak English fluently. I felt very safe during the different divining’s exercises and I had three great dives outside Nungwi

While in Zanzibar, I wanted to dive with Diving Poseidon due to the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. By email, I was able to schedule diving and transportation to their shop in less than 24 hours.
