Zanzibar is exotic in so many ways. This small island was once the center for traders from India, Arabia and Africa. Apart from ivory and spices, slaves where once traded in Stone Town. History is still very visible in the winding alleys of this town and you must allow yourself to "get lost" and carried away. But... Exotic is also the diving! With all year round warm weather and great visibility you get an amazing experience of the Zanzibar marine life. In the coral gardens, caves, gentle slopes and walls all around the coast of the island you can expect to see a great variety of reef fish.
In addition, you have a number of sites on the outer reef within a 25-minute boat ride of the dive center, offering a wide variety of bigger fish like king fish, yellow fin tuna, barracudas, reef sharks, turtles, napoleon fish and from time to time dolphins. But, the biggest and the best - but only in season - humpback whales! That would be something for your logbook...
Situated on the beautiful east coast, Paje is the perfect place for not just a diving holiday, but also to explore the Island of Zanzibar. You can easily reach “must see” places like Stone Town, Jozani Forest and Nature Reserve, Spice Farms and of course amazing dive sites! Hang on the beach, chill in the hammocks or go active with kite surfing – a sport that is very popular in the area due to the soft sandy bottom and shallow water.
