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

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

Just got back from doing rescue certification, a night dive, and a few other fun dives with the lovely folks at Diving Poseidon. I am generally quite critical, however they impressed me on all levels. The staff were friendly and helpful. They did all the little things to make your tanks and such ready for the dive so you really... More

We are a couple from Barcelona, Spain and we went to Zanzíbar to dive and relax and we were very lucky because we found Diving Poseidón, which was close to our hotel and we had a great experience with them that we'll never forget. It is a great diving centre with great and lovely people working there. Thank Bernhard, Ilse,... More
