Deluxe Scuba Diving HolidaysThe waters off the Kenyan coast are warm, hospitable and literally teeming with fish; more species have been identified here than almost anywhere else on earth. Along the entire Kenyan coast stretches a vast fringing coral reef, protected in many places from over fishing and development by marine park laws. Here you have the opportunity to swim with dolphins or encounter a fifteen metre Whale Shark. Combining these underwater wonders with a safari is an opportunity not to be missed.

Days 02 - 04 : Watamu - Malindi Marine Park - B, D

Turtle in Watamu Marine ParkTransfer to Watamu, staying, for the next two nights, at the famous Hemingways Hotel.

Situated in a beautiful cove on an eight kilometre stretch of sandy beach, the hotels comfortable rooms have ocean views and there are two pools, a restaurant and a bar.

The Watamu Marine Park is one of the finest in Kenya and offers excellent scuba diving and snorkelling.

Mombasa Marine Park encompasses some of the best coral gardens in Kenya; offering a diverse range of diving activities, from wreck diving to drift reef diving, deep dives and spectacular night dives. An absolute must dive is Vuma Caves; where stunning caves can be explored at a relatively shallow depth.

Large fish, Reef Sharks, turtles, groupers and occasionally even dolphins can be found here. Not to be missed is the MV Dania, sunk especially for wreck penetration, with its continually evolving marine habitat.

Feedback From Clients

Judy Mosfat Kelling


The trip was beyond belief! Everything went like clockwork. We were met and taken care of by people in all three countries. Of all the trips I have taken out of the country (and there have been many), this was the easiest I've ever done. Wilderness Safaris has an incredible staff and wonderful camps too. Sefofane Botswana Charters did a fabulous job as well. One of the pilots even went on a game drive with us in the morning so we didn't miss it. We got to see all the animals I wanted to see and a lot more. We would go back in a heartbeat, so you may be hearing from us in the future. Thank you for setting up a terrific trip.
