Our trip started from Diani resort and took us about 1 h and 15 min to reach the dock point, where a local boat was waiting for the tourists. We sailed for 1 h towards an island where we did some diving and snorkling. If you are seasick, reconsider this trip. I didn't know I was, until I was on... More

Since the trip to Shimoni takes 4 to 5 hours and can be quite tiring, its good to leave Mombasa very early in the morning or a day before if you wish to make the most of your visit.Also, one requires a good amount of time for the marine park visit.

This review is not for the island itself, but for the snorkeling trip to Kisite as well, as a package. I went with Steve and Richard Safaris on a day trip from Mombasa. It was a very simple set up - they take you to the simple jetty where a small boat that fits about 20 people leaves to the... More

Near the island is a place surrounded by a coral reef where you can see dolphins swimming around the boat and you can do snorkeling. We were around 20 persons on the boat and the crew (4 persons). The crew are also doing the... More
