About the shore based diving

Diving in Tanzania is concentrated to the islands off the mainland - Zanzibar, Mafia Island and Pempa Island. The waters off Tanzania are crystal clear, have a rich marine life and offer very comfortable temperatures. Diving and snorkling can be done for long periods of time without getting cold. 

For hundreds of years there have been tradesmen sailing to, and past the coastline, leaving in their wake a variety of wrecks to be explored.
