Mafia Island is a diver’s dream, a bucket-list destination. These are some of the richest reefs you will ever see, with a great variety of hard and soft corals and diversity of tropical fish. There are shallow reefs from 6 down to the base of the Pinnacle at 28 metres, bommies, walls, caves and clefts and walls outside the bay. There is great diversity from a host of tiny nudibranchs to rays, sharks and large game fish to study close-up. Download our Guide to the Dive Sites of Mafia Island HERE

SPECIAL DEALS for keen divers with a Flexible Calender

The “green” seasons in Tanzania – when hotel rates are at their LOWEST – coincide with some of the best times of the year to dive, so our offers are especially attractive in June before the kusi (SE) monsoon begins and March, after the kaskazi (NE) monsoon, are great dive months for visibility and calm seas.
