Welcome to Rising Sun Dive Centre. The only PADI 5* Gold Palm and National Geographic Dive Centre in Zanzibar. Located on the untouched South East coast of the island, our dive centre was the first to discover this unexplored region. With over 12 years experience we offer you the highest levels of customer care and attention whilst encouraging you to conserve and explore the marine environment.
We take divers from complete beginners up to professional level and have a massive variety of diving guaranteeing something for everyone. With our small groups of a maximum of 6 divers per guide we are able to offer you the chance to escape the large crowds and get the most from your dives.
