“Professional outfit remote by well-placed”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Diving in Zanzibar is an expensive luxury, but among the most competitive rates were Adam's.
A little far, but the taxi from Sandies was included. The walk to the boat at lower tide is not ideal, but the ride to Mnemba Atoll is short and that helps when seas are less calm. All equipment was sound and staff "pamper" you by having everything set up. They chose sites to fit level of divers, gave good personal attention and gave impression you were in good hands all the time, while enjoying such rarities as frog fish, eagle rays and, in the case of my son, a dolphin swimming right up.

“The Dive Point ;)”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

I am not experienced diver, but from what I have seen and dived with Dive Point and their crew, I must say it was great experience with good support from Adam (salute;) and His team (salute again;).
There is good selection of places in a nearby Mnemba island and Adam was very good sharing these places with us, also with good tips on how to improve my ("fresh" so far) diving skills.
Adam & Co, thank You for good dives and we're looking forward to see You again sometime, hopefully soon ;)

“nice but not exciting”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

The dive center is brand new - perfect equipment - but brand new is sometimes not the best. The dive masters and the managers are still not very experienced and insecure in terms of diving spots. We only made shallow dives which was boring after a while. Even the boat is ridiculous, like a small nutshell mediated and not necessarily a secure feeling especially with the rough sea and tremendous waves we had.

“Excellent dive center”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

We had 4 dives in 2 days with them, all around the beautiful Mnemba island! Everything was perfect with this diving center, friendly managers, new good equipment, great dive masters.
This was our first dives after the open water course, and we got many useful tips from the staff.

The location is without doubt the best on Zanzibar, only around 15-20 minutes with boat Mnemba :)

“Best dive centre”
Reviewed 13 July 2013 via mobile

We absolutely loved diving with dive point-the staff are so warm,friendly and helpful and their equipment is amazing. They've only been open for 5 months and so all their equipment is brand new. Its in the absolute best location on the island because its directly opposite the atoll and instead of driving 45min one way to get to the launching beach like all the other dive companies have to do, we just had a quick 5min drive around the corner. And after the dive when the tide's higher, the boat took us directly back to the centre instead. Brilliant. Can't wait to dive with them again.
