Zanzibar, Tanzania

Adv. Open Water Course (3 days / 2 nights. Incl. 5 dives)

The diving
You will most probably fall so much in love with Zanzibar, the diving and the Hakuna Matata lifestyle that you will need excuses to stay! So, why not grab the opportunity and advance your diving skills? It is an incredible place, and we are sure you will love the beach, the sun, the sand, the people and of course… the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course!

The course consists of 5 dives, each of them explores a new area of diving, like deep diving, wreck diving, navigation or underwater photography. It is a playful course, giving you experience and control in the water by simply diving with different purposes and goals.

Very close to the dive center, you’ll find a wide variety of dive sites ranging from walls, gentle slopes to caves, all with exciting marine life to explore during the course. If you don’t know where to go next, then make sure you book a few extra days of diving after you finish your course, so you can get out and use those new skills you’ve developed.



Location
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.

Your resort
Drifters Backpackers is located in the middle of Paje Beach. A very lively, laid-back and youthful town. The hostel is within 5 minutes walk to restaurants, bars, coffeeshops, shops, kite centers, and public transport. But above all, you are just a stone’s throw away from the sugar-white sand and turquoise-water of Paje's glorious beach, which you can see from the swimming pool!

Your room
As a standard, you’ll be booked in at one of the 4 dorm rooms at Drifters backpacker. We have 2 dorm rooms with 6 beds, one with 4 beds and one with 8 beds.The dorm with 8 beds is for female and the remaining 3 are mixed but preferably  separated into male and female depending on the bookings.
The dorm rooms are really quite nice, but the private rooms at Ebb & flow apartments are lovely! The private rooms are located right next door.
You can always upgrade to Ebb & Flow during booking.
