Welcome to Scuba Do Zanzibar Our philosophy is to offer our customers the most incredible snorkelling and diving experiences with our professional team of instructors and divemasters. We use top-quality equipment, follow stringent safety standards, and offer our guests a superior service. We have a fleet of six custom dive boats which can take you where you want to go, whenever you want to go! Scuba Do is a PADI 5-Star, Gold Palm Resort operating two dive bases on the stunning Kendwa Beach. In addition to being one of the best beaches on Zanzibar, Kendwa is the ideal place to launch the boats, swim at any tide and see spectacular sunsets.

Zanzibar’s life-rich coastline offers some of the best diving and snorkelling in the Indian Ocean. Our sweeping coral reefs, made up of hard and soft corals, are home to a spectacular variety of tropical fish, turtles, dolphins, stingrays and eels. With a passion for the aquatic realm, our eco-friendly snorkel guides and divemasters are well versed in our local marine life and enjoy sharing their knowledge. Our list of weird and wonderful sightings includes weedy scorpionfish, Mauritius scorpionfish, seahorses, leaffish, pipefish, and a variety of shrimps and nudibranches just to name a few.
