the clear blue Indian Ocean waters, large napoleon wrasse
swim side by side with pelagics such as tuna, jacks,
wahoo and schools of barracuda. Manta and eagle rays
cruise the edge of the reefs along with many species
of shark and giant groupers. Hawksbill and green turtles
roam the top of the reefs for food, rest and shelter,
while many smaller reef fish are playing in the shallower
depths. Between crustaceans, brightly colored starfish
can be found in a setting of vibrant colors from the
surrounding beautiful coral and sponges.
The best diving is found around the islands of Pemba,
Zanzibar and Mafia Islands. Both landbased and liveaboard
operators ply much of these waters.
Pemba Island is remote, relatively unknown and on many
experts list of top dive spots in the world. It is surrounded
by numerous small islands, fringed by beautiful coral
reefs and plunging drop-offs which gives a deep blue
color to the ocean that gradually turns into the turquoise
waters of the shallows.
Mostly the western coast has been explored for diving
as this side is sheltered and closest to the main land.
The shallows around the islands offer stunning snorkelling
and excellent conditions to experience lush coral gardens
which stretches as far a the eye can see.
