Diani Beach: Kisite Marine Park Dhow & Snorkeling with Lunch

1. Diani Beach: Kisite Marine Park Dhow & Snorkeling with Lunch

You will be collected from your hotel in Diani Beach and drive to Shimoni, a small fishing village. On the way, pass by small villages, sugar cane plantations and fields of cassava.  In Shimoni you will board a traditional Arabian Dhow to cruise to the Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park. Be sure to look out for dolphins as you head out to sea. Tea, coffee, mineral water, soft drinks, biscuits, mandazis and pizza bread will be served on the dhow. You'll go snorkeling at two different sites. There will be plenty of photo opportunities, so bring your camera. If you have an underwater one, even better. Lunch will be served on Wasini Island at a private cliff-top restaurant. Admire the views and enjoy a delicious meal of fish and crab, followed by citronella tea or fresh Kenyan coffee. After lunch, relax for a while and then head back to the mainland to take a bus back to your hotel.

Top Tour Friendly staff, saw a lot of wonderful fish, colorful corals and dolphins. The food was okay, the restaurant was idyllic all around. Highly recommended and really worth the money (if you're unlucky with the weather, there may be no dolphins to be seen and the sea is choppy). Everything was great for me

Highly recommend. The focus is on snorkeling, you spend roughly 1.5h at two different spots. Lunch is tasty - typical dishes, with crab being the main option, but vegetarian dishes are also possible. They support local communities which is always a plus.
