Activity description

Have you ever wondered what it's like to breath underwater? If you want to find out but aren't quite ready to take the plunge onto a certification course, then the Discover Scuba Diving course will be the underwater experience for you!

This is a great way for non-divers to experience diving for the first time! Under direct supervision of a dive instructor you will get the theory instructions and a pool session teaching you the minimal skills on the first day. The next day you will join us on the boat for 1 dive to discover the beautiful underwater world of Mnemba.

Dive spots;
Kichwani
Depth: 5-35m
Current: mild to strong
Perfect site for snorkelers, novice and experienced divers.
A gentle sloping wall covered in hard and soft corals. The reef starts at 4 metres and drops down to 35 metres. This site is also excellent for snorkelling. Kichwani is home to many schools of reef fish, such as goatfish, snappers and mackerel. The diver with a sharp eye will find frog fish, leaf fish, scorpion fish, moray eels, crocodile fish and the torpedo ray. Keep an eye on the deep water, where big Napoleon wrasse, bleu fin trevallies or white tip sharks can come closer to the reef.

Sand Banks
Depth: 6-30m
Current: mild to strong
Colourful dive site with amazing macro life.
Drift into schools of fish, look above, below and all around and be surrounded by fish. The corals and soft corals are colourful and in the small caves you will find plenty of surprises! For lovers of bleu spotted stingrays, Giant Spanish dancers, blue ribbon eels and nudibranch, this is heaven. End your dive in a school of batfish, this is the perfect dive site.

Coral Garden
Depth:
6-25m
Current: mild
An easy drift dive.
This is a colourful reef on the south-east of Mnemba Atoll. Coral garden is very good as a second dive with a lot of fish, soft corals and colourful sponges.

Schools of snappers and butterfly fish will pass by, groups of Blue fin trevallies come to the shallow reef for hunting and occasionally there will be a Napoleon cruising around.
