Completely agree with the other reviews. This was probably the coolest thing I've done in Kenya so far. The trip was incredibly well organized, from airport pickup to dropoff, the food was delicious (lots of fish and coconut!), and the beaches spreading out from under the mangroves were really beyond compare.
There was never a dull moment on this trip--kayaking through mangroves, swimming with dolphins, snorkeling in Kisite marine park, wandering through fields of sea grass off the sand bar... Even during the unscheduled parts we had plenty to do. The bay is calm and perfect for swimming or kayaking, and the island is open for exploring. Shakil is very flexible, and was happy to tailor the activities for us. As a biologist, he knows a ton about birds, fish, and especially coral, so expect to get the most out of the wildlife in the area.
Finally, although there were lots of opportunities to get a workout in, don't worry if you're not in great kayaking shape. The dhow was always there to pick up people when they got tired!
