Me and a friend booked a 8 day-16 dive package over a two week period. i ended up doing 19 dives because the quality was that good. 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. 'We... More

I dived six times with Buccaneer Diving, and found them to be very good. Briefings were clear and accurate, Equipment was measured and checked, however you need to invest in new shorties. Mine had holes in. Not what I pay for... The boat is tired, but works, and the captain knew his stuff. Tim is very polite, knows the marine... More

Dive with Buccaneer to get the chance to dive with Whale Sharks in November, wreck dives, shark diving with white tip reef sharks at shark point, or take it easy on one of the beautiful reefs. Or even go for a night dive and concentrate on the macro. The staff are professional with an emphasis on safety whilst ensuring you... More

My partner and I completed out Advanced Open Water diving certification with them. Tim arranged the logistics and Shelley was our Dive Instructor. They were very friendly and flexible and most of all we felt very... More

Great team, great dive centre. I did 4 days diving with Tim and the team at Buccaneer Kilifi in November this year. Great team, great dive centre. Very professional, and very friendly. I would recommend this centre especially if you like Macro life especially Nudibranchs and Ghost Pipe fish. The night dive off the house reef was probably one of... More

Yesterday i made my last dive at Angies. First time, which is strange after 5 years of diving with Buccaneer Diving, excellent dive. This is a graat operation. Service oriented, especially the divemasters, Steve, Nicolas, Bakari and Shaddy from Whitesands, the captains Saidi & Mamoud. Good material. Even if you are alone they will take you out.
