I did two dives and a snorkelling trip and my boyfriend did his advanced course. The equipment was fine and looked in good condition. Unfortunately, the meter that tells you how much oxygen you...

We spend one day at mnemba for 2 dives and one discovery dive. We had one divemaster for 3 people. The staff is very friendly. There was a lot of fishes and corals and one turtle. The visibility wasn t very good and the divemaster was a bit too fast. So it was difficult to follow him. They were not... More

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. The experience was over and way better than anything we could imagine about diving. As soon as Erica introduced us to the diving in the swimming pool and... More

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...).
