    We left stone town early morning and made the short drive to the first of our two final beach resorts. We arrive at the Zanzibar Retreat & are greeted by Karin, the wonderful assistant manager. The resort is small, 18 rooms & ours has a magnificent ocean view. It is built in the traditional Swahili architecture style, Arabic influence with …

Kitted up in our wetsuits and looking like Scuba Steve's, we tried to remember the things we learnt the day before and prayed that I wouldn't actually get asthma and die.
