We stayed at the Diani Sea Resort and they had an office in the resort. Bakari was the person we met at the office who gave a us all the details about scuba diving. It was my first experience and so he explained everything. We took the discover scuba diving package which was of 165 euros and included 2 dives of an hour each (we managed 45 mins both times). Bakari is a wonderful instructor, very patient and helpful. The day prior to the dive we did the pool training in the Diani Marine village (5 mins from Diani Marino resort) was extremely helpful. This pool session was extremely useful for first time divers as it helps understand all the basics and get acclimatise to diving practically before the real deal. Bakari walked us through everything in the pool and in the mock dives inside we did all the emergency scenarios. The next day we were picked from our hotel at 8. We started our boat ride at about 8:30, after which we did our two dives and back by 12:30. It was really a breathtaking experience underwater with lots of corals, sea turtles, fishes. Bakari, Saidi and the entire Diani Marine team were very helpful, professional. The equipment’s were great as well. And in the end we got our certificates when we were back.
Special thanks to our instructor Bakari who was with us every second of the two dives.
