My husband and I stopped over at Zanzibar for a couple of days and decided to dive with Buccaneer. They were extremely informative and welcoming right from the start. My first interaction was via email with Wycliffe, would very promptly explained the costing etc. We had already booked our stay at Paje, but Buccaneer diving is in the same premise as Paje beach apts which looked pretty great. We needed to do a refresher course, before our boat double dive.
I can’t seem to remember the name of the instructor who carried out our refresher, but he, like ibra (dive master) and beka (dive instructor) (latter two guided us on our boat dives) were absolutely wonderful! Their knowledge was always on point and their infectious personalities always had us laughing! Diving should always be a happy sport, and they made sure it was.

Buccaneer Diving is totally recommandable. Didi and Polar were very competent, professional diveinstructors. The reef was amazingly beautiful. If you are in Paje, you definitely should go diving with them. Without seeing that reef you miss out the best part of your holiday.

I had an excellent time in Paje doing my PADI open water course. Staff is super friendly and professional. Big thumbs up for the environmental initiatives, distributing optional mesh bags during the dives to collect waste if seen (personally, didn't see any in the water), encouraging reusable water bottle. I did diving before and Zanzibar offers a huge variety of aquatic life with an amazing visibility! I highly recommend Didi who was a great and hilarious instructor, I felt safe the whole time. Plus, Paje is definitely the coolest place to be on the island! Have fun!

I joined the Scuba Discovery course at the Diving Center. I'd never dived before, so i am a complete rookie. But the guys give you a good felling. We practice safty things at the pool. And after that we had two ocean dive sessions. It was amazing under Water. Thank's to the Team. And Ibrahim. Enjoyed the trip with them.
