VAMIZI ISLAND DIVING
Vamizi offers diving for all levels of divers, with shallow pristine coral gardens for beginners to deeper slopes for advanced divers. The dives on the Metundo Canyon are the most rewarding for advanced divers. Our dive centre also offers PADI dive courses, snorkeling
A big part of Vamizi is surrounded by a coralline lagoon that is lined by a fringing reef. A major part of the lagoon is gazetted as a marine sanctuary, and as a no take zone there is no extractive fishing happening in there at all. The lagoon is a wonderful place snorkel, and is naturally packed with fish of all sorts.
A combination of wild underwater landscapes, the bounty of tropical ocean currents and an abundance of marine life, makes Vamizi diving beyond world class.
In this incredible ocean environment, Vamizi Diving fanatical team - which includes qualified PADI divemasters and instructors - take the tropical scuba experience to new depths.
Chilled by water from over a kilometre below, corals on Vamizi's dramatic drop- offs (unlike most of the world tropical reefs) have not been bleached by the global rise in sea temperatures and make up among the healthiest and most pristine reef-systems you can see anywhere.
There is also a huge variety of marine life here: great shoals of tuna, barracuda, grey reef sharks, turtles and giant groupers, amongst many others.
These are the kind of conditions that divers mostly dream about. One particular Vamizi site, Neptune's Arm - where coral gardens tumble down the edge of a thousand metre cliff so crowded with fish you can hardly see the view - has been named as one of the top ten scuba sites on the planet.
That said, there are also plenty of easy dives, shallow sites and snorkelling spots for the casual or beginner diver - still stunning, full of life and very close to the island.
Altogether, this makes Vamizi Island more than a great place to dive, it is an oceanic Nirvana.
