Don't expect 5 star luxury, gourmet dinners and valet parking here. This place is wild but the diving around Pemba Island is absolutely amazing, pretty much virgin and will impress even the most travelled scuba diver. The untouched coral reefs surrounding the entire island really make Pemba one of the top dive sites in the world! Manta rays and Whale sharks come into the Pemba channel to feed every year between October to April. A resident school of around four hundred spinner dolphin, which inhabit the west coast of Pemba are very likely to be encountered from the dive boat. And under water you have the opportunity to encounter bottlenose dolphins which are very likely to interact with you! So pack your things and go!

Generally the long dry season, when rainfall is fairly unusual, lasts throughout June, July, August, September and October. The main rainy season, or the 'long rains', last during March, April and May. During November and December there's another rainy season: the 'short rains'. These are much lighter than the main rains and less reliable.

So generally speaking the best season would be from June to October

Pemba Island (Airport Code PMA) can be accessed via Zanzibar Island or the city of Dar es Salaam. But the most frequent route is from Zanzibar to Pemba with either Zanair (www.zanair.com), Coastal Air (www.coastal.co.tz) or Auric Air (www.auricair.com).
