This should be in anyone's bucket-list who is looking for amazing scuba diving adventures. The Rising sun dive team - Rebecca, Wisse and Luis were fun and really took time with every diver....discovery or certified. This part of the Zanzibar island offers a dive experience that is truly unforgettable :)

My 15 year old son decided he wanted to try diving. Rising Sun was great! We had a great dive outing the day after his pool training. We saw lots of sea life and the water was very clear.
