I completed my Padi open water diving course at bucaneer diving in Kilifi. The whole experience was absolutely fantastic. To start off with bucaneer diving is located on the beautiful Kilifi creek. (Kilifi is very accessible and an added bonus is that you avoid the chaos of Mombasa traffic). Diving in April is wonderful as the water is very calm... More

We recently returned from an incredible family trip to Kenya with our two daughters. We spent the last few days relaxing on the coast near Kilifi/Bofa Beach. Based on a recommendation we contacted the Buccaneer Dive team and arranged an introductory lesson & dive for our girls (university aged) and refreshers for us. Tim was our instructor and did a...

I want to extend a big thank you to Tim & his crew with Buccaneer Diving in Kilifi for taking me on my first scuba diving experience. From instruction to pool, everything went smoothly. Even when I had a bit of a "moment" with my first attempt at the drive in the Indian Ocean, Tim was understanding and patient with... More

I dived with Tim at Buccaneer in Kilifi and he (and his boat captain) was very professional and he has a couple of very good dive sites he has found, which had very prolific marine life (perlagics, guitar shark, eagle rays) despite not being in a marine reserve. Tim then arranged for me to dive with his colleagues at Buccaneer... More

This was a wonderful experience sailing out to the Indian Ocean .The food was out of this world and you get really large portions.There is entertainment on board which makes it even more memorable.

I am a scuba instructor and visited Mombasa White Sands Resorts with my sister (a Rescue Diver). Buccaneer Diving center was our main choice since they had an outfitter at the hotel and they had the best reviews in the area. My sister and I made a reservation online before traveling to Kenya. Once we got to the resort we... More
