Fun Diving We are situated directly in front of the beach, with prime location to all of the Mafia Island Diving Sites inside and outside Chole Bay. Diving is affected by the local tide times and trips have to be planned according to these times. This means that the diving times will change daily. We offer daily double dives on either the low or high tide (according to the time) and sometimes it is possible to offer a third/night dive as well (according to the tide time). For all of our double dives, we have our surface interval on the boat with tea, coffee and biscuits before going on to do the second dive. This means that you need to plan to be out for 4-6hours, depending on the sites that you are visiting. Your PADI Instructor or PADI Divemaster will be happy to discuss a plan for your vacation to make sure that you get the best diving whilst you are here! If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.
We are situated in a prime location on Utende beach in the Mafia Island Marine Park. Come and experience true relaxation.
