My family had a great first time diving experience with Didi and Buckeneer Diving. My 10, 13 & 15 year old did a Discover Scuba course with Didi. He was calm, kind and very good at instructing the children. He instilled confidence without giving them too much bravado. My sons really enjoyed both their dives out in the lagoon. Sadly my daughter was seasick and could only do one dive. They all came back wanting to dive again in the future. Thank you Didi!

Dived with Didi. He was so informative and ensured we were confident in the pool before going into the sea. I struggle with equalising and Didi stayed with me the whole time. Other instructors were with us so this didn’t impact anyone else which is fantastic. Didi was very considerate throughout and continued to check my well-being but also the environment. Didi collected some plastic items throughout the dive and pointed out a wide range of marine life. Couldn’t recommend Buccaneer diving enough! A must if you are travelling to Zanzibar!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Buccaneer Diving. Having done a few discovery dives over the years, we decided to go for our Open Water certification here in Zanzibar. Didi, our instructor, was incredible. In addition to being a scuba expert, Didi understood human psychology and knew just what to say and when. I struggled with clearing my mask, and he told me I was too much in my head, then had me practice in calm waters until I felt confident. With the right balance of humor and seriousness and strong communication skills (both pre-dive and under the water), we couldn't have asked for a better instructor. Thank you, Didi, for guiding us through this amazing experience. Beka and Bernard, who accompanied us on the dive boat, were also fabulous. They were relaxed, knowledgable, and they made us feel safe on the boat and underwater--even when we felt anxious or, in one instance, seasick!
