Went on the seafari trip with a dozen other people . two hours to get to the first snorkelling site off Mnemba Island. two crew guided the snorklers and assisted those who were not strong swimmer. After an hour we moved to another spot where the reef fell away in a deep wall to the ocean floor. After that we... More

Just back in from another trip to Kendwa rocks. Went out with the Zanzibar watersports team this time for deep sea fishing. Had a great time with the crew and managed to pull in some fish. Stunning day on the water. Highly recommend if you are on the island.

My experience was as follows: The reason my wife and I went to Zanzibar was to relax after 2 weeks in Kenya and Tanzania and for me to indulge in... More

Once again I'd like to offer my sincere apologies for your disappointing experience with Zanzibar Watersports . It is never our intention to leave clients 'pissed off' and unsatisfied. As a result of speaking with you previously, Zanzibar Watersports did immediately offer you a full refund which you accepted. Unfortunately most of your frustration comes from the point that you...

What a great week scuba diving around North Zanzibar. 7 days at Kendwa Rocks Hotel, 6 days diving/12 dives. Some of the dives are a tad shallow so get compromised visibility. It certainly doesn't detract from the enjoyment. The guys at Zanzibar Watersports were superb and even though I couldn't twist their arm to the more extreme dives, the dives... More

Had a downrigger but never put it. Only changed baits twice. Been fising in Cabo and Mombasa all crews worked hard but not... More

My girlfriend and I spent 2 weeks in Zanzibar with 10 days worth on Kendwa beach. Zanzibar Watersports office on Kendwa is located in the grounds of our hotel and came highly recommended. Both of us had never done scuba diving before so we deliberated over which course to choose, but ended up on the scuba diver - open water... More

Spent 6 days in Zanzibar this summer with a friend. We both wanted to dive and she needed to get her PADI certification. She reached out to a couple of dive shops and found Chris, the owner, to be the most straightforward and helpful in terms of service and information. The PADI course they offered with fantastic. She was able... More

During our stay we went for two dives here. The instruction as we asked about diving was very good. We ordered two dives package within the sanctuary (for an extra of 30 USD), which was supposed to be very good. I recommend bargain here as well as everywhere else in Africa. We both got the student discount, even though only... More

Me and my friend wanted to have a lot of snorkeling and scuba diving experiences for our short 4 day stay in Zanzibar. Thus we wisely discussed our plans with different operators and checked prices correspondingly. Two out of three times we ended up with Zanzibar Watersports as we found them the only reliable and honest providers. (The third time... More

Just got back from Zanzibar and had the best trip with these guys. Great pick up and support through the entire trip. Their knowledge of the island and water sports is second to none. From kiting to diving and kayaking I just had great trip. The location in Kendwa is epic! Would not hesitate to recommend these guys. One of... More
