Spearfishing Program in Pemba Island

Spearfishing Program in Pemba Island

Pemba Island is well known in the scuba diving world for having some of the cleanest waters and dramatic drop-offs in the world. There are but a handful of resorts on the island developed for tourism, so the local population continues to coexist with the natural environment they live in, practicing fishing and subsistence farming.

The island is mostly covered in lush vegetation and rain forest, and it’s shorelines are dotted with little coves and inlets that teem with baitfish, making them perfect settings for Dogtooth Tuna and other pelagics to hunt.”

On a normal day the visibility off Pemba will be 40 m. On a bad day it will be 15 m. On an amazing day the visibility will be over 50 m. Large schools of Yellowfin Tuna feed off the island’s southern and northern points due to the upwelling currents bringing nutrient rich waters to the island’s steep drop-offs.

The best season for Wahoo and large Mahi Mahi is from July through October while Dogtooth Tuna are present year round but prevalent in larger numbers from October through March.
