Octoplus Zanzibar Diving Trip

It is with great excitement that we are finally allowed to Travel again.  We know times have been tough and would love to invite you to Zanzibar with us.



10-19 October 2022


What about the covid dilemma?

If you are fully vaccinated, no PCR is required. For the individuals who are not vaccinated, a PCR is required no older that 72 hours upon entering Zanzibar.


Where are we staying.

This trip is really a special one for both Wayne and I.  We will be your personal tour guides.

Upon arrival we will meet our transfer to the lodge. This is a 1h15 drive from the airport.  We are staying at a gem called Sunshine Marine Lodge: www.marinelodgezanzibar.com Please feel free to follow the link to check out this amazing spot.

The lodge has its own PADI dive center called Dive Point: www.divepointzanzibar.com


Let’s talk Diving.

Well, its pristine diving in Zanzibar, warm Indian Ocean with great visibility and current in some parts.  We will be diving with Dive Point diving center and will visit the Marine Park of Mnemba Island.  Macro Photographer’s paradise.  Not a Certified diver? Well, I can do a Discover Scuba Diving course with you with some basic skills and briefing explaining Scuba Diving principles.

Just want to Snorkel? You can see beautiful coral reef, fish and complete eco systems of the Marine world.

Wayne and I will have some evening talks on Scuba Diving tips that we have learned over the past years and would love to share this information with you. Join us for sundowners and a dive debriefing.

About us…

Wayne and I have visited this amazing Paradise a year ago.  Diving is our passion and as many of you might know, my job.  We had the most amazing dives in Zanzibar.  The people are welcoming and friendly, and the weather is just amazing.  We have been to many places and just love the whole package.  Zanzibar should not be experienced in a 7-star manner, the Island life is what you need to explore here, from fresh seafood and cold beers at the local Shebeen (Bar or Pub) to a rich history of slavery and trade.

Very safe holiday destination and not to far to travel. Only 5h45min from Dubai. 

There are no hidden costs, what you see is what you get.


So yes, this is a personalized and personally designed and involved trip and not a drop off and go holiday.

Let the Adventure Begin…
