Diving the Best of Zanzibar With Spanish Dancer Divers

Sponsored article 1

Spanish Dancer Divers is a PADI 5 star dive resort located on the main beach of Nungwi, on the furthest northern shores of Zanzibar. One of the first dive centres to be built on the island, the highly experienced team of PADI instructors and divemasters offers diving and courses in English, Spanish, French, German and Swahili.

The Zanzibar archipelago is situated in the Indian Ocean, off the eastern shores of Africa and is comprised of four main islands: Unguja, the largest, which is usually referred to simply as 'Zanzibar', Pemba, Mnemba and Latham. The area is rich in biodiversity and teeming with fish life. The likes of nudibranch, leaf fish, frog fish, crocodile fish, sea horses, mantis shrimp, octopuses - and much more - are common and very easy to spot amidst the vibrant coral reefs.

Against a backdrop of white sand and clear blue water, Spanish Dancer Divers' Nungwi location makes it ideal for macro photography, and the nearby island of Tumabatu and the pristine reefs of the Mnemba Atoll Conservation Area are within easy reach thanks to the dive centre's speedboat. 

Large pelagics are infrequent visitors to the area, but whitetip reef sharks are spotted several times a month, green and hawksill turtles are common, and two resident pods of bottlenose dolphins are regulalry spotted between Nungwi and Mnemba Atoll - and will often playfull interact with human snorkellers. For a rare treat, breaching humpback whales are sometimes spotted between the dive sites during their annual migration through the area between August and September every year.
