Dhow Safari to Kisite Marine Park
Enjoy a day trip on a traditional dhow boat to Kisite-Mpunguti Marine National Park. The trip departs after a early morning breakfast, and takes you to 2 sites in the marine park. Here you can snorkel or scuba dive. Diving ranges from introductory "fun dives" in the shallows of the marine park, all the way to advanced drift dives in a number of secret and exclusive with the opportunity to dive with pelagic species.
The trip finishes off with an amazing seafood lunch on Wasini Island. After lunch the dhow will bring you back over the channel to the camp where you can enjoy the rest of the afternoon at the poolside enjoying some cold drinks.
We have a fully operational Dive Center at the camp and offer fun dives, day dives, and night dives. Our center is both PADI and NAUI accredited and offers dive courses ranging from Open Water, Advanced Diver, Rescue Diver, Dive Master, and Instructor courses.
We offer dives in the Shimoni channel where you can view the coral restoration project being undertaken by Reefolution Foundation and we also offer dives within Kisite-Mpunguti Marine National Park.
We offer half day and full day fishing charters. The day starts off with early morning coffee and snacks at the restaurant before boarding our fishing boat at the camp jetty.
Our experienced captain will motor out to the area where you have the highest chances of catching some big game fish. Typical catches include Dorado, King Fish, Yellow Fin Tuna, Wahoo, Baracuda, Sailfish, and Marlin.
Shimoni is one of two places along Kenya's coast where you can see the sun set over the ocean. The other is Lamu. At around 5PM the boat is laid out with comfy cushions, cold beers, Gin & Tonics, or Champaign - whichever you prefer. You will enjoy a slow cruise down the channel to the western point of Wasini Island, passing by Shimoni village on your right and Wasini Island on your left. The cruise will last until the sun has gone down after-which the dhow slowly makes its way back to the camp jetty.
This is the perfect way to end a perfect day in one of the most beautiful and tranquil parts of East Africa.
Enjoy a paddle around in the calm waters of the Shimoni Channel or crosss over to Wasini Island. We have 6 Kayaks that groups can use to explore the beautiful surroundings of the coastline.
