Diving in Pemba

The island offers an incredible mix of thrilling drift dives, marine walls and large reserves of pelagic life. Pristine reefs and dramatic vertical coral cliffs of more than 800 meters are the defining feature of many dive sites along the west coast. Coral gardens, sponges and sea fans cover these marine cliffs, which often stretch as far as the eye can see and host a fascinating array of colourful reef fish. The view over some of these spectacular precipices is typically excellent, although local conditions mean that predicting visibility remains unpredictable.
