The diving around Paje is pristine with some of the finest corals to be found in East Africa. There is a protected natural lagoon only ten minutes away by boat, a great choice for all levels of divers and accompanying snorkelers. The dive sites close to Paje offer a number of good safe and protected dives also in the rougher rainy season and in general for beginners. Doing the Open Water course in Paje, you will experience the amazing marine life, the instance you are ready to leave the swimming pool. Even the dive sites for beginners are full of exciting things to explore.
In addition, you have a number of sites on the outer reef within a 25-minute boat ride of the dive center, offering a wide variety of bigger fish like king fish, yellow fin tuna, barracudas, reef sharks, turtles, napoleon fish and from time to time dolphins. But, the biggest and the best - but only in season - humpback whales! That would be something for your logbook...
Situated on the beautiful east coast, Paje is the perfect place for not just a diving holiday, but also to explore the Island of Zanzibar. You can easily reach “must see” places like Stone Town, Jozani Forest and Nature Reserve, Spice Farms and of course amazing dive sites! Hang on the beach, chill in the hammocks or go active with kite surfing – a sport that is very popular in the area due to the soft sandy bottom and shallow water.
