Firstly where are you staying?

The best diving and snorkelling would be at Mnemba Atoll which is on the North East Coast of Zanzibar.

That is what I was trying to decide

Z hotel, Double tree are some of the places I was looking at, but am willing to stay any where on the mainland zanzibar, preferably close to the ferry stations and airport ( but am flexible on that as snorkelling and diving is priority )

How bad is April weather for these sports

Thanks for your answer in advance.

In Zanzibar you can dive the whole year. Sept/Oct are very good months the water is 26 degrees. If you come the first 2 weeks of December is excellent…the water is calm and the water temp. is 27-28 degrees!! Good visibility. End of December and February have usually more winds, more waves and less visibility.

The Z Hotel or Double Tree by Hilton are still good option at North Coast or Neptune Pwani Beach Resort,Dreams of Zanzibar,Ocean Paradise Beach Resort,Mapenzi beach Club,Bluebay Beach Resort at North East Coast are all best options because are very closed to the best marine reserved area(best reefs) including teh famouse Mnemba Atoll.
