Wow! I had been told it would be amazing and had heard lots of stories of recent dives in Kilifi with Buccaneer Dive Club... I'd heard so many stories that I was worried to be expecting a little too much! But it was beyond expectations! Diving the cliffs of Vuma was spectacular... Hearing the whales from the bottom surrounded by white snapper, rays and overhanging corals was quite unbelievable... in fact I couldn't believe they were whales! Twenty minutes later... we were snorkelling with a giant Humpback Whale and her baby...

Tim went out of his way to make sure we had the best time possible whilst maintaining the highest standards of security and respect for the marine environment ... What else do you need?

Thanks Tim, it was amazing!

I stayed at the Mnarani Club in Kilifi becuase of the presence of Buccaneer Diving... and not only were my expectation of a dive outfit met, they were blown away and are now the high mark I measure all other dive outfits against!
The dive sites on offer are varied and always amazing - the sealife and reefs off the coast are just amazing to the point I really wished that I had a dive camera - something I rectified on returning home! Rays left right and centre, stonefish of various colours, huge shoals of various reef fish and of course the colourful nubiranchia. And even a surface interval swimming with dolphins!
But the single most impressive thing are the staff of Buccaneer Diving. Tim, Litza and the rest of the team were amazingly friendly which instantly puts you at ease, professional and hugely knowledgable about their patch making every dive special.

It was an amazing 2 weeks in Kenya with a three day safari in the Masai Mara and nine dives with Buccanneer resulting in one of the best holiday experiences ever and definitely my favourite dive experiences. So much so there is a standing plan to return... must see a whale shark!

By meeting Tim Rendell from Kilifi Buccaneer Diving, i made a friend. Tim has been an excellent teacher and guide, which made my diving trips unforgettable. The quality and diversity of the diving spots in the area is also incredible, for amateurs as for professionals.
And i you are feeling lucky you might even swim with humpback wales !

Amazing holiday !

Just finished a couple of days diving with the Mombasa base at the Voyager, and I have been very impressed with the service I received.
The guys are professional, friendly, very knowledgeable and cannot do enough to help, to ensure that your dives go off without a hitch.
Well done everyone, and keep up the good work, especially the humpback whale watching thrown in for free on the last day. Absolutely amazing trip!
