Enjoy Kenya’s most popular snorkeling and diving boat safari to the famous Kisite Marine Park, just 55km from Diani Beach. This is a personalized and professional sea safari that includes snorkeling and diving at the Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park graced by the presence of dolphins, with a delicious Swahili seafood lunch (or vegan).
We sail from Shimoni peer to Kisite Mpunguti Marine National Park in a Dhow – a traditional wooden Arab sailing boat. On our journey, we search for one of the many pods of resident dolphins to enjoy the company of these beautiful mammals in their natural habitat.
Then we head to the coral reefs of the Marine National Park where we have the possibility to go swimming/ snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean (assistance for non-swimmers provided), and/ or relax on the boat or a sandbank at low tide.
Afterward, we continue our journey to Wasini Island where we will enjoy delicious Swahili seafood lunch (or chicken/ vegan dish).
In the afternoon, a guided visit to the island’s main village with an optional visit of Wasini’s community conservation project “Coral Garden” and its boardwalk through the mangrove forest is closing up your day on Wasini island.
