The snorkeling is amazing with lots of brightly coloured fish in turquoise waters. We also got to see dolphins which swam next to the boat for a long time. However I would advise you to book with a reputable tour company because my experience with the boat that took us was not great. First the sail on the boat did... More

Excellent place! Saw dolphins! Organised by one of the agents on Bamburi Beach, Eddie, outside of Neptune Hotel. Snorkelling was fun too. Lunch was option of seafood or chicken and they take you to local village afterwards. Just remember to bring sweets for the kids! Whole day event.

The park covers 28 sq km of pristine coral reefs and offers excellent diving and snorkeling. You have a reasonable chance of seeing dolphins in the Shimoni Channel and humpback whales... More

We enjoyed our day tour Wasini Island, saw many dolphins, the snorkel trip was marvellous and the food very tasty. All in all an adventure not to miss. Best price offer we got with African Bush and Beach Adventures, Diani Beach. Can recommend this tour.

To go to the Island you have to take a boat through the Kisite Marine park. We used a boat operated by Charlies Claw. We got to the island and went to the restaurant which is managed by Charlies Claw. The Island was very beautiful a little piece of heaven.
