This place is full of pros and all you will do while here is laugh and smile. Except for the people around trying to sell you their stuff which can get annoying,it is fun. We did banana boat,Ringo, parasailing and jet skiing. The guys that do it really make it a memorable experience. Thank you...

This was my first diving experience and I went on a full day diving to Mnemba Island which included two seperate dives and a lunch on the boat. The instructions given at the start of the dive were really clear and were practiced in the water before diving any deeper. Also the guidance throughout the dive was excellent with constant... More

Zanzibar Watersports were recommended by a friend in Uganda who's used them several times. I found them to have reasonable costs, a very knowledgable crew, good equipment and a friendly owner. The experience was relaxing and fun. Would definitely recommend a dive off Mnemba Island off the north east coast, where I saw giant turtle and Bottlenose dolphin in crystal... More

The Jet Ski's are quite pricy. $50 for 15 minutes. Or you may go on the trip we done for about 2.5 hours for 2 people, it cost $180

We paid for a snorkling tour to Mnemba island but never enjoyed it because of too many jellyfish. The captain never talked to us and the animator did not look to care about us. The food was not good. What a pity because James with whom we booked the tour was very nice!!

I was staying at Kendwa Rocks, and met the owners at the bar on my first night at the resort. We got talking, they really liked my moustache and offered me a 'moustache discount' on all their activities. :D I did my PADI open water scuba course and half a day of big game fishing here. The guys were really... More

We booked our diving with from the Kendwa Rocks hotel. Chris told us that we would have an instructor for my partner and myself, as I am not a confident diver. On the day we were diving with two other people. One of whom was completing a PADI course and we waited for him to complete skills etc. Our instructor;... More

After doing some research and getting in contact with a few companies, only Zanzibar Watersports seemed to be replying in a friendly and informative, way. Other companies I contacted seemed like they were not interested in hosting us (I never made... More

I found my scuba diving day at Mnemba Atoll very exciting and beautiful. The instructors are professional and assertive which was very much appreciated. In particular my instructor Juma gave all the necessary information in a very good manner and the entire diving was a great success and pleasure with him. On a separate note thank to Kaamis who is...
