Full description

Get ready to board an exclusive private boat and sail for about one hour searching for dolphins, before snorkeling and diving (for these who choose the diving option) in the Kisite marine national park. Kisite Marine national park is the second most famous marine park in the world, after the Australian Marine Park. Explore 30 kilometers of turtles, marine tortoise, bearreeffs, coral reefs and different types of marine fishes. Next sail to Wasisni Island where your lunch of sea food and Swahili dishes will be served. After lunch, you’ll have the option to do a guided tour of the Wasini island and experience the local Swahili culture, visiting the beautiful coral garden, mangrove forest and fishing village to learn more about the Swahili people and their history. Your local guide will give you an in-depth explanation and background throughout the tour. Alternatively, you can relax at the restaurant, enjoying the sea view and the breeze.

Once you are done with the island tour, board the boat and back to the mainland where you will take a guided tour of the Shimoni Slave Caves. Then, start the journey back to your accommodation.

Although we didn't see any dolphins, our time was very good and fulfilling. We were able to swim in the warm, clear and beautifully undulating Indian Ocean and saw some colorful fish. Lunch on Wasini Island was tasty. The visit to the Slave Caves was a memorable experience.

The day was magnificent and the crew was amazing. From Mackenzie, who came to pick us up very early and Ismail who drove us there and back, to the excursion boat captain and the restaurant in Wasini, we really enjoyed our time. Kudos for a great organisation and wonderful service.

We spent our second-to-last day in Kenya on this excursion. Unlike our other excursions, this one had other groups on our dhow ride to Kisite. It’s about a 45 minute journey to Kisite. If you’re prone to seasickness, take your meds beforehand. Once there, some of us went snorkeling while others simply swam in the Indian Ocean. It was a relaxing 30 minutes. Afterwards, they took us to Wasini for a local lunch of fish, crab and rice. It was tasty. Note beverages are extra so bring shillings. If you’re looking for some r&r in the sea, I would recommend this excursion.
