The Mombasa Marine National Park is a wonderful, easy place to snorkel. Everyone pays $15.00 to access the park. Boat ride and equipment rental was approximately $20. Bring water and a towel. I highly recommend using Blue Lagoon Water Sports located in the Sarvova Whitesands Beach Resort for your guide, boat, and equipment rental needs. The price was the same as the beach boys offered on the beach, but the professionalism and personal interest in marine life was a special treat. Our guide, James, would find anything we asked to look at, like an octopus hiding in a rock or a string ray sitting on the ocean floor. He was very careful to point out to all of us the special things to see. In the beginning, he found a special sea mushroom to coat our mask so that they would not fog. Then each of us were given bread to feed the fish. Don't miss this outstanding snorkeling experience with a friendly guide who made the experience much more than was expected.
