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 ensures that calm/clear waters can be always found around the island regardless of wind and tides. Established in 2009 the scuba diving center Banana Divers is equipped with everything needed for a safe and pleasant experience. Several boats, experienced skippers, 2 breathing air compressors, up to date equipment and a Padi Professional will offer great time to experienced divers or beginners who want just a taste of scuba diving with the PADI DSD program.
