In a traditional dhow you make your way across the Indian Ocean before it’s time to go deep. Thanks to the Kisite Marine Park being protected, you can look forward to a thriving ecosystem and stunning coral reefs.

Additional information

Guides will join you – one guide per four beginning snorkelers and one guide per six snorkelers with experience. Even people who are not able to swim can join with a personal guide pulling them through the water with a floater. Snorkeling equipment is included in this excursion.

The reefs in Kisite Marine Park are not only famous for their colourful fish, but also offer sanctuary to over 200 dolphins – spinner, humpback and bottlenose – which can all be seen breaking above the waves as they porpoise elegantly through the water on a regular basis. From July to December also humpback whales can be spotted here.

Seafood lunch
After snorkeling for some hours you head to Wasini Island for a late lunch. This will truly be a meal to remember with lots of seafood, white wine and beer. After lunch you’ll have time to relax over tea, coffee and patisserie in the Day Dreamer’s Lounge. You do can do some bird watching or look up anything you have seen during snorkeling in the comprehensive marine library.

Once back in Shimoni you can visit the ancient coral caves. In the 18th and 19th century these were holding areas for slaves who transferred to slave markets in Zanzibar. Nowadays the caves are run as a community project and the small entrance fee is used to pay school fees of children from the local community.
