2. From Mombasa: Watamu Marine Park & Sudi Island Excursion

Get picked up from your desired pick-up location along the Mombasa coast. Drive North towards Watamu and arrive at the Marine Park. Board a double decker boat and begin an incredible tour over the coral reefs with the opportunity to see incredible marine life.

On the fringe, you'll have an excellent chance of viewing the magnificent whale shark or manta rays that are seasonal visitors. The park is also home to 3 species of sea turtles that nest on the beaches. After snorkeling, head over to the white sandy beaches where you will be allowed to step off the boat for a swim in the crystal clear blue waters for a while. Then set sail for Sudi Island where you can enjoy the views of the lush green mangroves along the creek side. A t around 1 PM arrive on the island where you'll receive a warm welcome and little entertainment. Enjoy a seafood lunch then take a guided canoe ride into the mangrove forest. Depart from the island at around 4 PM and return to the marine park, where your driver will be waiting for you to return you back to your pick-up location.

A great day tour, our driver Ismail was super friendly. Breakfast can definitely be skipped that day, lunch doesn't seem to end at all! The canoe tour through the mangroves is also great. Apart from dolphins and lots of small fish we also saw baby reef sharks in the morning
