This was one of the highlights of my trip to Kenya. The Wasini trip boat trip is a snorkelling/boat trip/dolphin extravaganza/lunch. To make matters even sweeter, unlimited soft and alcoholic drinks plus return transfers from your hotel front door.
Water is provided for the transfers, and you are taken straight onto the boat on arrival. When you get on the boat, you are offered soda, water and beer before taking off towards the islands. You then get in a few snorkelling sessions and explore for some dolphins before heading on-shore again for lunch and some incredible views. We also had the option to go to tour the Shimona slave caves, which was an extraordinary and humbling experience.
The itinerary itself is one that cannot be beat. However, what takes it over the edge are Jomo (Jay) and the incredible guys who run the whole operation. They are so helpful, attentive and willing to go out of their way to get you what you need. More, the amount of languages they speak is mind-blowing - they definitely put the Brits to shame. Their service is top notch.
For me, this was incredible. As a solo female traveller, they made sure I was okay throughout the trip, talked to me and educated me about where we were and Kenya in general. They were very knowledgeable, personable people. I felt 100 percent safe at all times - something very important for a lone woman.
I would recommend this trip for anyone who visits Kenya. It is an experience in the Indian Ocean that you will not forget. If you are not the best swimmer, that’s fine - they have life-jackets and other inflatables. Just get yourself on this boat.
