We have dived at this centre several times and it is second to none. Being experienced divers we are given a degree of freedom but at the same time there was always a watching presence. New divers and snorkelers were welcomed, time was taken sorting out kit that they were happy with and a clear outline of procedures explained so... More

We were not told that we can go snorkel again after a rest? Only when people asked if there was something wrong with the boat and when are we going back did they tell us that we can snorkel again? I was then a bit see sick of sitting on the boat. The boat did not have a roof and... More

Me and my partner decided to speak to the lady at the Royal resort. She was lovely and not pushy so we decided to book the Mnemba snorkelling tour. She walked up with us on the day to the centre which was around a 10 minute walk. We were given snorkels, flippers and a t-shirt. We had a group of... More

I did my PADI Open Water Diving certification course with them and it was awesome! They have great equipment and access to any facilities needed for the program. My instructor, Jennifer was fantastic and her enthusiasm for diving is contagious. She is very knowledgable and made the whole experience a lot of fun. The rest of the team is also... More

Good managed dive shop with daily trips to Mnemba island and local trips in north west area. For local trips a local boat, to Mnemba they use a inflammable speed boat. Also german speaking staff.

We were picked up and dropped off from our hotel each day. Staff was knowledgeable and kind. Dive boats and rental gear was in very good shape. Diving in remote locations in a gear heavy sport is not easy. East Africa Divers met all our needs easily, took us to great locations and we would not hesitate to use them... More

I booked a snorkeling excursion via my hotel (though I am also an experienced diver). It was $60. The trips leave from Nungwi Town - they came and collected me from my resort. All said and done, it was a 5 hour excursion, with probably 60-75 minutes of snorkeling. The fins and snorkel looked new, as did the BCD and... More

We went on trip to Mnemba Island...snorkel gear and wetsuit provided which was a plus...unfortunately first boat had a broken outboard so we wasted an hour trying to fix it...then shifted to another boat, which was smaller and made for tight squeeze... Staff was friendly enough...was good to be on high speed inflatable as we got to island more quickly... More

I'm a fairly well-travelled diver having been to PADI resorts all over the world. I tend to use the 5* rating to help guide my decision in choosing a dive shop, and using reviews as well. I stayed at Essque Zalu which is a very expensive resort and as such, expected them to pair with a high-class diving operator. The... More
