There is only one word for this activity that sums it all up: Breathtaking. We were picked up from our hotel at 5 a.m. & had a good three hour drive (which was due to our hotel location). The driver & guide Ismail told us a lot about his country on the outward and return journey and answered countless questions. The trip alone was worth the money. Arrived at the destination we met our captain who also has an incredible knowledge of the waters and the animals that live there, so we had the chance to see dolphins and even whales which have been sighted off the island the last few days. We are one Followed the animals for a while and observed them well before we drove to the dive spot, where we experienced a breathtaking underwater life that will stay in our memories forever. After the insights we went to the wonderful food, followed by the island & cave visit. Book & be enchanted!Asante sana

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.
