Banana Island Sierra Leone
Scuba diving and snorkeling
Banana Island offers the best scuba diving in Sierra Leone and some of the best scuba diving in West Africa. The islands are 5-15 miles off the coast, amongst the rich aquatic life and the clear waters of the ocean. Visibility is far better than the mainland shores and the diversity of species is greater due to the proximity to the open waters. The length/shape of the island means that calm/clear waters can always be found around the island regardless of wind and tides. The new scuba diving center Banana Divers, is equipped with everything needed for a safe and pleasant experience. Several boats, experienced skippers, 2 breathing air compressors, new equipment and a Padi Pro will offer great time to experienced divers or beginners who want just a taste of scuba diving with the PADI DSD program.
