Snorkeling in Zanzibar is an experience of a lifetime. Snorkeling opportunities in Zanzibar are amongst the most spectacular in the world, with stunning coral gardens and more than 350 recorded fish species. The diverse aquatic life off Zanzibar's coast includes turtles and dolphins as well as occasional sightings of humpback whales and whale sharks! Unlike many other popular snorkeling destinations around the world, it is still possible to find places that have never been explored along the coast. The many varieties of coral provide a home to thousands of colourful and exotic creatures, including blue ribbon tail rays, fire fish and for the “Finding Nemo” fans, clown fish.

Mnemba Island, and hour boat ride away from Zanzibar mainland, provides the best snorkeling spot. Many of the sites surrounding the island are colourful and thriving, making for fun snorkeling at any time of year. Expect to see lion fish, moray eels, stingrays and turtles swimming around in the shallows as well as humpback dolphins while you are sailing to the island.

On a trip to Mnemba Island, you will be provided with masks and fins if you do not have your own equipment. You will stay out for 5 – 6 hours, starting at 9am. After snorkeling at Mnemba you will enjoy lunch at a nearby beach before heading back home under the power of the dhow sails.
