“nice but not exciting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

The dive center is brand new - perfect equipment - but brand new is sometimes not the best. The dive masters and the managers are still not very experienced and insecure in terms of diving spots. We only made shallow dives which was boring after a while. Even the boat is ridiculous, like a small nutshell mediated and not necessarily a secure feeling especially with the rough sea and tremendous waves we had.

“Excellent dive center”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We had 4 dives in 2 days with them, all around the beautiful Mnemba island! Everything was perfect with this diving center, friendly managers, new good equipment, great dive masters.
This was our first dives after the open water course, and we got many useful tips from the staff.

The location is without doubt the best on Zanzibar, only around 15-20 minutes with boat Mnemba :)

“Best dive centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We absolutely loved diving with dive point-the staff are so warm,friendly and helpful and their equipment is amazing. They've only been open for 5 months and so all their equipment is brand new. Its in the absolute best location on the island because its directly opposite the atoll and instead of driving 45min one way to get to the launching beach like all the other dive companies have to do, we just had a quick 5min drive around the corner. And after the dive when the tide's higher, the boat took us directly back to the centre instead. Brilliant. Can't wait to dive with them again.

“Beautiful place, great instructors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

I visited this dive centre a couple of months ago as an almost total novice. The centre is set in an attractive hotel with a great view out to sea. They have their own specialised pool for learning to dive and everything seemed perfectly set up (at least to a beginner). We went for a double dive at Mnemba and given helpful advice and instructions along the way, as well as a good lunch. On the way back we even took a bit of a detour to get a good look at the dolphins. Add to that the friendliness of Adam and Gaba and the fact that we were picked up and dropped off at our hotel in Matemwe and it was an all-round great experience. Highly recommended.
