Diving in Kenya

Kenya is becoming increasingly popular as a dive destination. The Indian Ocean is a wilderness just as rich and diverse for exploration as any of Kenya’s game parks. The calm turquoise waters of Kenya’s beaches lie in the protective shelter of reef after reef, home to a myriad bounty of sea life. You will discover a new kind of safari – the world’s finest scuba safari.

For those seeking out Kenya’s giant species- our elephant herds are matched by the migratory pods of whale sharks that pass by the outer reefs from October until March.

Diving in Kenya is best from October until April, visibility lessens during July and August due to silting and high seas.

There are dive sites ranged along the 450 kilometre long coast from Malindi in the North to Shimoni in the South. Some of the best sites are centred around Kisite Mpunguti Marine Reserve. This area is your best chance to sight some of the largest Manta Rays on the East African coast.

A good excursion for both diving and snorkelling is a day dhow trip to Wasini Island, within the Reserve – easily arranged from Diani. This usually includes snorkelling and/or diving, and a seafood lunch on the island.

From unexplored sites to easily accessible undersea gardens of coral, schools of sharks to breaching whales, friendly dolphins to endangered turtles, incredible caves to mysterious wrecks, a Kenyan scuba safari gives you the whole wild world-underwater.
