Fishing

The ocean depths around Mnemba are a fisherman’s paradise, with game fish species such as barracuda, tuna, mackerel, kingfish, sailfish and marlin frequently encountered. Fly-fishing enthusiasts can fish directly off the island’s beaches, while deep sea fishing can be arranged at an extra cost. Mnemba follows a policy of catch and release.

Kayaking

From those wanting a little more exercise, kayaking and windsurfing off Mnemba’s white coral beaches are both available for guests.

Scuba Diving

Scuba Diving

A variety of scuba diving activities are available from novice to the more experienced. A valid diving certificate is required, however courses are also available for those guests who do not possess the required certification.

Snorkelling

Snorkelling

For those wanting to take it easy, snorkelling around the island offers our guests a memorable experience, with boats and snorkelling guides available to take guests to more remote reefs. Both snorkelling and scuba diving equipment are provided at no extra cost. More than 430 species of reef fish have been recorded on the Mnemba reef, a mere two minute swim from the beach. Bottlenose dolphins frequent these waters year round and guests have the opportunity to interact with these magnificent creatures either from the boat or in the water.
