Kenya’s tropical coast boasts over 300 miles of white sand beaches. The bustling island town of Mombasa is connected to the mainland by bridge and ferry and overlooks a wide harbour where commercial shipping mingles with traditional sailing dhows.

Marine life is excellent with many good dive sites including wrecks, walls, reefs and drift dives. Kenya’s reefs have suffered in the past from bad fishing and diving practices, however the situation has greatly improved with the introduction of mooring buoys and Marine Parks. The "creme-de-la-creme" of the Kenyan dive spots along the south coast has Nyuli Reef on the top of its list. Located in the protected National Marine Park Shimoni, where fishing is prohibited by law and protection of the reef not just a word. Only for experienced divers, the reef starts at 30m, with depths of more than 50m on the sandy bottom. Due to the weather conditions, this dive excursion can only be offered during dry season. Look out for Manta Rays
