Nothing but praise for diving Poseidon. Before I came to Zanzibar, I arranged everything through email with Bernhard. Always fast in response and very friendly (and a good price as well). When I got there, I received great personal (1 on 1) training: knowledgeable, friendly, and tailored to my needs. Great equipment and overall a really good experience. Thanks Diving... More

Small but very professional dive center, helpfull staff, nice boat with shade. Going to all diving locations around, Mnemba Island National Park was great, but my favorite will be "Shanes Reef". Between the dives water & fruits. Thanks to all the staff for their effort taking care!

We did a three day course and recommend it to everyone. Very helpful and friendly staff. They had good equipment and a nice boat. All diving sites we visited were great, we saw a lot of different kinds of fish, few turtles, an octopus and a stingray.

We liked the they services. Both owner and local guide were kind and did everything to ensure high quality services for us. They are 4-5 minutes walk on the beach from Double Tree Hotel, close to Mamma Mia Restaurant. The price is acceptable.
