My family have just returned from spending over three weeks in Kenya and Tanzania on Safari. We ended our trip with a week in Zanzibar. My two teenage sons did the PADI Open Water Course with Emmanuel. Both passed and had the most wonderful time. The whole team were fantastic from the Dive Masters to the boat crew. Something I...

A small but very friendly and helpful outfit. Staff were very attentive and helpful, particluarly with my wife who has limited mobility. Dive masters are excellent and the diving off Mnembra was memorable. We also did a snorkeling trip which was excellent, lunch on a picture perfect sandbank in the middle of a perfect blue sea!

It was fascinating, smashing and simply unforgettable. My husband Alex and I, Alina, flew on our honeymoon to Cancun. Before we went back home we decided to try and go for diving.

My wife and I went on a snorkeling trip with them and found the boat staff -- especially Chunni, the snorkel guide -- to be excellent. We were lucky enough to see dolphins and the boat crew went all out to pursue them so we could get a glimpse. I gave them an average rating because we were paired up... More

What I liked : Staff is working really hard on the boat and price is cheaper them the other companies. What I don't like: The unprofessionalism of the Owner/Instructor, Emmanuel. He is too friendly and some times you have to be serious when diving. The equipment is old. Lots of gauges to tell you how deep you are are not... More

Great staff at "Scuba Libre" in Matenwe. Good scuba at Penwa island. (OneOcean seems to be a leading company nearby, but more expensive and too busy...).

Went on four dives with them. Dive Master was helpful and we saw some great fish and lots of sea cucumbers. The boat was too crowded and logistics could use improvement. Overall friendly staff and got the job done.
