Snorkeling in Zanzibar

The outstanding corals of Zanzibar offer a stunning experience for every snorkeler on a holiday in Zanzibar and Tanzania as a whole.

Snorkeling in Zanzibar is regarded among the best in the world. Our sites will thrill you and give you an unforgettable experience. More than 350 different fish species are recorded here alone.

Common Marine Animals


Some of the most common species you should expect to see while snorkeling in Zanzibar are butterflyfish, parrotfish, clownfish, boxfish, lionfish, angelfish, stingrays and many more.

Others include turtles, dolphins, lobsters, squids, crabs, nudibranches, starfish cucumbers, sponges, shrimps, sea urchin and the list goes on.

The deep water around Zanzibar attracts some of the real giants of the Indian Ocean and sometimes we see the amazing Humpback whale very close to the beaches.

Another visitor is the friendly whale shark that sometimes allows snorkelers and divers to come very close. This giant is despite its name and size a harmless and friendly encounter. Refer to our scuba diving packages for a deeper look.
