Updated: Jul 9, 2023

Africa may be the second-largest continent on the planet, but this huge landmass remains relatively undiscovered by tourists and divers. Mysterious, exotic, and offering some of the world's richest ecosystems, Africa is worth a second look when considering your next dive vacation.

There is a huge variety of diving available around Africa's 18,950 miles of coastline, from the tropical endemic waters of the Red Sea through to the wild pelagic hunting grounds of Mozambique and South Africa. Discover where we think the best scuba diving in Africa can be found or read more details in our specific destination guides such as diving in South Africa, Zanzibar diving, scuba diving in Madagascar, and Red Sea dive trips.

Here at Bluewater, we not only offer dive trips to Africa we also run topside African safaris. Experience first-hand the awesome big game in Tanzania or come face-to-face with mountain gorillas on our trekking expeditions in Uganda and Rwanda.
