The crystal clear tropical waters surrounding the island of Zanzibar are home to some of the world’s most diverse sea life and colourful reefs. At Mnemba Atoll marine park turtles are a common site and are used to seeing divers. At least three pods of dolphins live in the area and are seen on almost all trips and the majestic whale sharks migrates past the island twice a year. Around the same time of year whales can be seen and a pod of rare humpback dolphins have been sighted many times. These strange creatures number only twelve hundred in the world and we are lucky enough to have around forty in the area.
