There is nothing to complain about on the tour itself. After a private drive in the company vehicle with the very nice driver Mackenzie, we went on the dhow. People who get seasick easily should be careful here. The dolphin tour was extremely successful. However, I have to deduct a star because of the snorkeling. Not because we didn't see anything. On the contrary. The reefs and their inhabitants were breathtaking. However, you had to be very careful not to lose sight of your group, as there were four groups in the water at the same time and no fixed time or meeting point was agreed. But with a little bit of attention it was no longer a problem. You just have to know ... The food on Wasini Island was delicious and the village and slave cave were also very interesting. A little tip: if you want to make the local children happy, take a few sweets with you :)

We spent our second-to-last day in Kenya on this excursion. Unlike our other excursions, this one had other groups on our dhow ride to Kisite. It’s about a 45 minute journey to Kisite. If you’re prone to seasickness, take your meds beforehand. Once there, some of us went snorkeling while others simply swam in the Indian Ocean. It was a relaxing 30 minutes. Afterwards, they took us to Wasini for a local lunch of fish, crab and rice. It was tasty. Note beverages are extra so bring shillings. If you’re looking for some r&r in the sea, I would recommend this excursion.

it was a wonderful day and everything was perfectly organized. the guids on the ship were so friendly and warm that they made my day easier with their presence. the snorkeling was breathtakingly beautiful !!! the food on the island was also very tasty and on the way back the guides sang for us. made my day i can only say with your zest for life and your singing you made an already perfect day even more perfect !!! i can recommend this excursion to everyone! it was definitely worth every cheap one i paid for! well done and thanks for a wonderful day!
