I came to Pemba for the diving. I have done 1300plus dives, I've been diving for 30 years. I live on a barrier ref and i know my diving. The diving was spectacular. Theses guys were pros. If you can get Raf to lead your dives, you will not go wrong. He knows the reefs like no other.
These guys are the best.
The lodge is wonderfully comfortable. Cisca runs a great show, she also runs kayak tours, to my shame I kept diving and missed out on this. This is not a 5 star barefoot luxury lodge. It is a rustic comfortable divers lodge. No airs and graces here.
The food is great- two healthy choices at every meal. I wanted no dairy- reduced fat and it just happened.
