A marine park within a city sounds so irrestitible. You are guaranteed to view very beautiful coral gardens in this marine park, though the experience is not what you would get from snorkelling. Good for those who never want to touch the water though.

Marine Park is interesting even for those who have never been diving. You can dive with mask and observe hundreds of fish around you. Don't hesitate bargaing with natives for the boat price, they tend to overstate it. As for me, the amount of insolent souvenir sellers was too high.

I undertook one dive inside the marine park ie. inside the reef as I was diving in June and the sea was very rough outside the reef. We had a shallow 45 minute dive swimming between coral outcrops that were projecting from a sandy bottom. Saw a couple of sting rays and medium sized moray eels together with a very... More

Snorkeling-looking at the fish under the water and following them, looking at the ecosystem was a very enriching experience

the particular area we visited did not have the expected numbers in flora and fauna. KWS should re think how best to ensure visitors get value for the travel across the sea.
