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

Unfortunately, a change in my tour's schedule forced me to cancel. The shop was again prompt in their communication and courteous concerning my last... More

Bernhard and his wife provide a very professional service, with attention to both the comfort and safety of their clients. Bernhard makes a point of not running trips when conditions are not optimal, including rough seas leading to sea sickness or poor visibility. The numbers are strictly limited to 10 per trip, ensuring a more comfortable trip with access to... More

Diving Poseidon is a first rate dive operation. Bernhard and his dive masters run a friendly, safe and competent operation in a laid back relaxed manner. The rental gear is in good shape and Bernhard was kind enough to throw in extras in free of charge. I definitely recommend a night dive from shore with Mbwana, he knows how to... More

Bernhard runs a very nice diving shop there in Zanzibar, an hour north of Stone Town. He and his wife are personable, friendly, and easy to work with. I've dove all around the globe, and Bernhard's shop is the first one that doesn't nickle and dime you for everything. Need a light for a night dive? Most shops will rent... More
