Zanzibar “Submarine” – exciting underwater journeys

Newly launched on 3rd October 2023, the Zanzibar Submarine excursion is designed to offer visitors a unique opportunity to witness marine life and ecosystems up close while staying comfortably above the water’s surface.

Unlike traditional submarines, the semi-submarine does not completely submerge. The vessel is designed with a submerged hull that allows passengers to descend into a submerged viewing area, providing a panoramic view of the underwater world through large windows.

The semi-submarine’s electric propulsion system ensures quiet and emission-free movement, minimizing disturbances to marine life. The spacious and air-conditioned cabin, with a capacity of 12 passengers, provides comfortable seating, allowing passengers to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views. Trained crew members and guides are present on board to provide information assistance, and ensure a secure journey.
