“Absolutely Spot On!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I arrived in Zanzibar a non-diver, calling from Stonetown the owner Bernhard made the organisation of my diving seamless. I completed my PADI open water with Dive Poseidon and can say I genuinely never, ever had a single complaint or problem!!

The equipment is brand new, the dive spots are incredible and the staff a pleasure to dive with!

The location is 30m from the beach, variety of accommodation and great restaurants!

100% recommend Dive Poseidon!

“Highly recommened”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

From the first moment we saw the centre we understood it is a pretty new business which just started to develop. However this does not has to put you off as everything was perfect.
We passed our Open Diving courses there and we really enjoyed it. Just a couple of advantages in comparison with let's say other more established diving centres:
1.A lot greater chance that it will be just two of you . Remember that big diving centres already have a lot of clients and most probably will take more people together . With Diving Poseidon we were very lucky to be just two of us and the instructor.
2.The prices are relatively lower in comparison with other more established centres.
3.A lot greater chance that it will be just two of you when passing through the theory and exams which gives you the possibility to ask more questions and a far more personal approach.
And , the most important , the instructor of course. He is a real professional and nice guy to deal with. We felt really safe and confident with him. Highly recommended.
He was really keen to go for that extra mile and did his best for the whole course.
The equipment is OK and more or less the same as every diving centre has.
So , in conclusion wanted to say: if you are in doubt of which centre to go with as we were , go with Diving Poseidon and you will say Thanks to me when finished.
