This was our first diving after certification and it was great! We did two days and saw a ton of animals. We were told that whale sharks aren't very common anymore, but we were more than satisfied with giant schools of fish, crocodile fish, moray eels, sea turtles, cuttlefish, lobster and white tipped reef sharks!

Sven and Chris were both very excellent and responsive when booking (it's nice to be able to get all the questions we had answered quickly from the other side of the world).

I would absolutely recommend Peponi to anyone looking to dive in Kenya!

We decided to dive with Peponi Divers beacuse of the good communication with Chris before we went to Kenya. Chris answered all my questions and organized transport from our hotel to diving centre. Peponi crew were very helpful and friendly. We made a pool check and after that we went diving on the reefs. We had a great time with Peponi, I can recommend this diving centre for everyone, also for not experienced divers.

Hello Edyta,
many thanks for your review. We at Peponi Divers Mombasa are very glad you enjoyed the diving with us. Good communication is a must for us to give full information to our guests even before arriving here in Mombasa.
As you know already, transport from and to your hotel can always be organised by Peponi Divers Mombasa, within north coast even free of charge.
For the dives you did not use we have already sent you the refund and should appear on your bank account very soon.
Hoping to see you soon back in Mombasa for some more spectacular dives we wish you always "happy bubbles".
Best regards
Chris & the Peponi's

I got my Open Water Diver certification with Peponi in February 2011. It was a great experience. Everyone was very nice and patient and lots of fun. And diving at the reefs off the coast was beautiful. I would definitely recommend Peponi. Thanks to Mary my teacher and Omari and Tom my dive buddies. Thank you for a great time and a great introduction to diving! The beaches north of Mombasa are beautiful.
