Current Watamu conditions

Hey guys, im looking for some info on the current water conditions over at watamu. I'm arriving there on 2 April from Nairobi, and with all the rain I'm wondering if the river has clouded up the ocean any?

This is my first time to Watamu, any suggestions on transport from Mombasa? How about to Malindi, since I'm wanting to get up there one day and check it out. Any other advice?

Thanks!

Watamu should be better than Malindi while heavy rains are sweeping topsoil into the Tana, but to get there and check it out is a very easy 25 min matatu ride from Watamu village.

Getting up to Watamu from Mombasa is likewise straightforward. If you're travelling by public transport you'll need to first get into town from the airport (most people take a cab, lots available) and get the driver to drop you on Abdel Nasser Road where all the northbound buses and matatus wait. Prices vary depending on speed and comfort, starting at Ksh200 and about three hours.

Hope that's a help.

hi chriscenter1.

There are no rivers flowing into the sea at Watamu and the nearest is the galana river at malindi and there the sea will be very red from all the mud from in land. it will be worth a visit at the moment to see from the jetty in malindi and malindi in general is worth a look.

there has not been much rain at watamu yet but the sea will be choppy and an amount of sea weed but still very warm

hope you enjoy
