Snorkeling in Zanzibar

Snorkeling in Zanzibar

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.

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.

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.

We do get frequent visits from the friendly whale shark that sometimes allows snorkelers to come very close. Despite its name and size it is harmless. Refer to our scuba diving packages for a deeper look.
