Dolphin spotting boat trip full day - from South or North Coast

 delfinsmileEarly morning, our tour guide will collect you in front of your hotel, and driving along genuine Swahili villages, will tell you about the history of the Kenyan coastline. In Shimoni, we will visit the famous Slave Cave, where as the story says, to-be slaves were sent off to the main distribution point, the Island of Zanzibar.

Here, we will take a boat and go dolphin watching. In the channel between Wasini Island and the mainland, we can almost always see the populous dolphin population that lives in this area.

On the boat, we serve tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits.

Dolphin spotting

When we have had enough fun watching the playful dolphins, we head to the ocean. According to the weather and the guests’ need, we head to nearby islands and reefs, where everyone can enjoy the wonders of the Mpunguti National Park to his/her liking.

Cannot swim? – no problem, you can see the fabulous life of the reefs through the glass bottom viewer from a little boat.

Would you like to snorkel? – On the boat, we have all the equipments necessary for snorkelling, including masks, snorkels and fins. But be careful, and put plenty of sun cream on your back!

Would you like to dive? – Dive sites around Wasini Island and Kisite Islands are of an approximate depth of 15-18 metres, but in case of appropriate weather, we visit deeper dive sites too. Marine life is especially diverse, so if you are lucky, you can dive with dolphins, whale sharks or even manta rays too! Travel to Kenya and spend your holiday on Wasini island

Dolphin spotting

For lunch, we will stop on Wasini Island, at Paradise Divers, where chef Mohammed will blow you away with genuine Swahili seafood dishes. Obviously, we have offers to those not fond of seafood and vegetarians too! If you have any special requests, please let us know a day in advance!

After lunch, you can have a short repose in the breezy, shady relaxation area, where Mwanajabo will serve you tea and coffee. Then we will go to a nearby fishing-village and see how coastal people live their everyday lives on the Equator.

After this exciting day, we voyage back to the mainland, from where you will be transferred to your hotel.
