Buccaneer Diving, Paje

Scuba / Snorkeling · Boat Tour
Buccaneer Diving Zanzibar is located in Paje on the wonderful South East coast of Zanzibar Island. Away from the overcrowded beaches of Kiwengwa, Nungwi, and Kendwa, Paje is renown for its stunning beaches, unspoilt village life, small sized guesthouses and lodges. The stretch reaching from Kizimkazi (south point of island, famous for dolphin spotting) through Jambiani, Paje, Bwejuu, Dongwe to Michamvi (which is situated on the eastern tip of Chwaka Bay), is often referred to as the secret coast of Zanzibar, where the real identity of the island is still preserved and untouched from mass tourism.

Nonetheless Paje and the neighbouring area offers a variety of bars, evening hangouts, restaurants and regular nightlife.

The diving around Paje is pristine with some of the finest corals to be found in East Africa. The protected natural lagoon which is only ten minutes boat ride from the Buccaneer Diving base at the Arabian Nights hotel is a great choice for all levels of divers and accompanying snorkelers and it also means that we can offer a number of good safe and protected dives in the rougher monsoon and in general for beginners. The lagoon also is an ideal spot for night dives.

In addition we have a number of sites on the outer reef within a 25-minute fast boat ride of our base offering a wide variety of topography ranging from walls, gentle slopes to caves and exciting marine life, some also suitable for beginners and some of which accessible only to more expert divers ...and we are always looking for more!

We also offer dives and snorkeling from our sister operation at the Swahili Beach Hotel in Kizimkazi in the South of the island. Kizimkazi is renowned for its dolphins and idyllic sand banks and a days diving followed by a seafood lunch is a must.

In addition to our special Kizimkazi trip, we also organise a day trip to the atoll of Mnemba, located in a marine park that is a great location both diving and snorkelling. Watch out for other seasonal special trips.

  • I must admit, when I looked up for dive centers in Zanzibar, Bucanner Diving wasn't on my list. But then, chance would have it, I got in touch with them via my hotel. I'm more than happy it happened.....  more »
  • Way overpriced for the service you receive! $205 for 2 dives is way too much! After being given the equipment you had to carry it yourself everywhere and wash it yourself after the dive. When I asked for water I was given a communal cup that sat next to the huge water bottle. Overall a very disappointing experience for what you pay for. The dive itself was nice though.
