Mafia Island, found in the south of Tanzania, is a treasure trove of marine life. It’s like an underwater paradise with more than 50 kinds of colorful corals and nearly 400 different types of fish. Here, nature thrives in perfect harmony, making it feel like you’ve stepped into a magical world beneath the waves.
If you’re a fan of scuba diving, Mafia Island and the nearby islands are a dream come true. These waters are famous across Africa for their fantastic diving spots. When you take the plunge into the deep, you’ll meet an incredible variety of marine creatures. Picture yourself swimming alongside different kinds of sharks, from ones with white tips to those with guitar-shaped fins. You’ll also encounter bustling schools of barracuda, graceful rays, friendly turtles, and some pretty big, fierce fish that’ll make your adventure extra thrilling.
When you’re a scuba diver, you’ll hop on a smaller boat to reach the best diving spots, which keeps you safe and lets you explore the most amazing underwater scenes with ease.
But that’s not all – Mafia Island is also a fantastic place to spot whale sharks. These gentle giants love to visit from October to February, with November and December being the best months. During this time, you can often see these impressive creatures swimming near the shore, creating a truly unforgettable sight.
