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

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!
