Diving the Big Blue
'These are the kind of conditions that divers mostly dream about. One particular Vamizi site ... has been named as one of the top ten scuba sites on the planet.'
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 Island’s fanatical dive 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.
