Wattabomi

Located near the Mnemba atoll, the Wattabomi dive site is one of Zanzibar’s most reputed. The dive begins at 7 meters and can go down to up to 35. This means there is something for everyone—all levels can get their kicks! Several times, a strong current sweeps through the site and the water becomes crystal clear and fills up with fish!

 

This site has a sandy bottom full of coral heads that change color when you touch. Mainly made of hard coral, this dive site is very rich in fauna. You will see lots of scorpionfish, reef stonefish, red lionfish, giant toadfish, and frogfish. When the dive center, Dive Point Zanzibar, talks about this site, they call it the “lunar” site.  You will understand why—a large expanse of sand full of coral heads with little eel heads popping out and popping back in as soon as you get near. It’s a strange picture, but a magic one at that!
