Scuba Diving from Bamburi Beach Hotel

Hi, My husband and I have just booked Bamburi Beach Hotel for Aug 2011. I see it has a dive centre at the hotel. My husband is a diver and will be diving whilst in Kenya and I was just wondering if anyone has used the dive centre, and if they have how did they find it for safety and professionalism etc. Would anyone have a contact number or e-mail address for the dive centre, or idea of cost?

Really appreciate any response, thank you

Jambo,

unfortunately i cannot recommend them anymore. Since the Operation Manager left last year it went downhill in terms of quality of equipment,dive guides etc.

As long as the current owner is not investing anymore i wouldn't use them.

On a positive note it's still time before you go and by next year Management might have changed.

All the best,

Chuchu

Thanks for that Chuchu. Maybe he would be better off contacting Buccaneer Diving or another well known set up that would ensure tip top equipment and safety 1st at all times.

Hi there. I have dived with Bucaneer and can't recommend them enough. They have a base at Whitesands in Bamburi and many of the dives are from this location.

Please feel free to PM me if you want to know more.

Peponi divers are a very good Padi diving school also working in the same area. Based at Bahari Beach Hotel, I think.

Thought maybe that this was an appropriate thread to post in...correct me if I am wrong.

Would anyone here recommend an outfit to use to go swimming with the Whalesharks?

Thanks in advance!
