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

I dived with Bucaneers in Kilifi many times and was always happy with the dives. Tim and his staff are super nice and always go the extra mile.

Superb staff and service. We were two divers With totally differant Level of experience and we both felt safe and really happy about this dive senter. highly reccomened! Compared to another dive senter in the region, its a little more expencive without accually offering anything extra. But the difference is not that much. Get wet!

All the time I have dived with them I have never been disappointed, they take you to all the best places to see everything from the smallest sea horses to the big whales. All the equipment is of a...

We dived through the Voyager Dive Center,Nyali, Mombasa and further up the coast at Kilifi with Tim and his crew. All the staff at both the Buccaneer centres were great and very helpful.... More

Just got back from 2 great weeks at the Mnarani Club Hotel (Kilifi) and top spot was the amazing sea life in the warm indian ocean. With Tim's help I advanced from Scuba diver to Open water, so the extra 6 metres I can now dive can help me explore more. I would recommend this dive centre, and the surrounding... More

Faulty, ageing equipment, an expensive 'marine park' (cash only, no receipts) that was a very sparse collection of mostly dead coral and sand 5 mins from the beach and, the final insult, lied to about the credit card machine not working (worked just fine when we insisted on trying it) then told to visit a bank to draw cash.
