One Ocean – The Zanzibar Dive Centre
One Ocean is one of the oldest and most reputable dive operations in Tanzania. Since 1993, thousands of tourists have been delighted by the snorkelling, dives and courses provided by our team.

In 1999 Gary Greig, an Australian, bought the company and since then it has expanded its operations on Zanzibar to include some of the best resorts and beach lodges on the island. It is now the biggest dive operator in East Africa.

We currently have the only dive centre in Stone Town, as well as four dive centres on the east coast in the Matemwe and Kiwengwa areas.

One of the many highlights on the island is a boat trip to a secret sandbank in the Indian Ocean to go snorkelling and scubadiving among breath-taking, untouched reefs. Daily sunset cruises along the verdant west coast of Zanzibar as well as visits to Prison Island and Grave & Snake Island are also offered.

A visit to the famous spice farms, just 3 kms away from Chuini Zanzibar Beach Lodge, is an absolute must. There are also many other attractions including Old Stone Town, Jozani Forrest and the Colobus monkeys coupled with endless beaches in the East… just to name a few.
