“Don´t go there - rip off!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

The place - like almost every other in southern Zanzibar is laughable. They charge horrendous prices and you get very little for it. To begin with - there is no beach, even if the picture on their homepage suggests it. I have rarely encountered so unfriendly and unmotivated personell. Food prices are way over the top. Organisation and cleanlyness is sub sub par and so is the diving offered. Trip manager charges 2-3 times the prices for excursions compared to others in the area. I pointed this out - 1 hour later I had a large dent i my rental car.....
. It is a joke. Don´t go there. Dont go to to southern Zanbibar ar all unlessyou like being ripped off. 80 dollars for a single tank dive!!!!!
The whole place and the whole area was a joke!
