Pemba and Zanzibar are considered among the best diving sites in the world; their pristine warm clear waters are surrounded by the most spectacularly healthy reefs in East Africa, and have one of the top prolific reef systems in the world. The coral covered walls, coral strewn reef slopes, and enormous, healthy bommies are surrounded by reef fish. There are schools of chevron barracuda, yellow fin tuna, Jacks and snapper to be seen as well as giant groupers who sit territorially on Pemba’s reefs and most sites have a resident Maori wrasse. The dive sites are simply stunning. Ribbon eels, fire dartfish and leaf-fish can be found on many of the reefs.
