Dive 710, our fully equipped, PADI 5 Star, Dive Centre is managed by our friendly & very experienced PADI Dive Instructors, Filbert, Sebastien and Marlene.

Pemba’s tranquil surroundings have a unique underwater experience difficult to find anywhere else in the world, gifted with a remarkable variety of untouched snorkeling & dive sites rarely visited by any other boats, including beautiful reefs, deep walls & wrecks all being patrolled by an amazing density of marine life and breathtaking fields of corals.

Misali Island is part of a conservation area that was set up in 1998. A non-extraction zone encompasses the north and western fringing reefs, and only a limited number of seasonal fishermen are permitted to camp on the island, within designated areas. As a result of this protection the reefs are covered with incredibly pristine coral.

The waters around Misali contain more than twice the number of coral genera than are found elsewhere in Tanzania, often seen are beautiful gorgonian sea fans and giant sponges amongst fields of ancient cabbage corals. With over 300 species of fish, like barracuda, kingfish, wahoo, tuna and jacks patrolling the reefs, there is plenty to keep you busy with.

Humpback whales can sometimes also be seen and heard as they migrate north in August and early September

US$50 marine park fee per boat per day is levied towards the running of this conservation area.
Boat trips across to the island take approximately 30 minutes.

Please Bring Sunscreen, a Hat, Swimming Costume and Beach Shoes.
Towels & Refreshments will be supplied by the Resort.

Dive Sites:-

Most of our dives are conducted on the west coast of Pemba Island.
The majority of the local reefs have wall and sloping profiles where you will find the pristine corals covering the reef through to the drop off to form almost vertical cliffs.
Visibility averages around 20 metres and can increase up to 60 meters.

The best time to dive is usually on an incoming tide. For that reason the dive schedule can change and we advise you to check with the Dive Centre each day.

There is usually a gentle current so most dives are conducted as drift dives where groups stay with our experienced guides who carry a surface marker.
The Dive Center is fully equipped with new and regularly serviced ScubaPro and Aqualung Equipment.
