Your local guide will give you an in-depth explanation and background throughout the tour. Alternatively, you can relax at the restaurant, enjoying the sea view ...

    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.
