What you'll do

Come and experience our awesome underwater world with us. Wasini is surrounded by living coral structures, and a community managed protected reef area. You have the opportunity to snorkel with us close to the shore in shallow water up to a maximum depth of 5 meters and see a wide variety of healthy corals and reef fishes. We would like to introduce you to the amazing sports of snorkeling, and the identification of corals and reef fishes such as banded eel, reticulated eel, calamari, cuttlefish, various anemone fish species, box fish, puffer fish, indian lionfish, sturgeon fish, butterfly fishes...and many more. According to your energy level, we can make several snorkeling turns, interluded by some chilling and snacking on the island's shores.

Being born and raised on Wasini Island, l have a special love affair with the underwater world. Since my childhood days, I've spent many hours of my free time - and later in my professional life - with a snorkeling mask on my head. I have been trained over several months in rescue & life saving at sea. One of my professional tasks is working as a snorkeling guide with an association of local boat operators called Wasini's Blue Whale Boat Operators. I know our waters like the back of my hands.

Where you'll be

After an hour's drive through the coastal countryside, we will sail from Shimoni for about 20 minutes to reach our snorkeling sites off Wasini Island. Together we will explore the little known coral formations along her southern coast in the community's Marine Conservation Area where a middle sized reef is full of sea life! At the end of the tour, we will sail back to Shimoni - unless you opt to stay on in one of our Blue Monkey Beach Cottages.

As a Non-Swimmer this was extraordinary. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, patient and attentive. I felt completely safe under his supervision. The location was beautiful and the excursion was priced perfectly. I'd definitely recommend this experience.

WOW!! Amazing!! We loved the snorkeling! Our guide was amazing and helpful. My friend can’t swim but our guide was able to get her in water to make her feel comfortable! This is a must when in Diani!

THIS IS A GREAT TRIP. The crew was wonderful, welcoming, helpful, and encouraging. The local community's efforts to manage, regrow and maintain the reef are worthy of support. BOOK A PRIVATE TOUR and BOOK THE LUNCH. It was AMAZING. Fresh local seafood. Three course meal. Everything was fresh, well prepared, and WONDERFUL. BOOK THE LUNCH. It rounded out our day really well. It would be great if all Airbnb travelers took the time to support local communities! This trip is one wonderful, pain-free way to do it.

Feisal was super kind and helpful from the moment I booked this experience. I had family visiting from the UK, they were blown away by the amount of fish we saw in the conservation area and it was great to see the projects Feisal is working on with the coral restoration too. It is a fantastic experience and makes for a great day out. We had a great pick up from our guest house in Diani, smooth drive down to Wasini, great meeting with Fiesal there, lovely boat, watched dolphins frolicking in the ocean, we then snorkelled twice with a great fresh fruit and mandarin snack break in between. I'd really recommend booking this trip! The equipment is all super too!

Such a wonderful experience with an expert guide. All the equipment to ensure safety for weak or non swimmers was available so really, no worries ! I thoroughly enjoyed snorkeling, there were lots of beautiful fish and corals to see at the location. Thanks to my guide, I left there more knowledgeable about the activity and even the surrounding community. Five star experience if you ask me !

Great snorkeling tour of Wasini island reef! Everything went smoothly, and the snorkeling was one of the most amazing spots I've been to. Note: you do not go to Kisite Marine National Park. We didn't realize this at the time of booking, but snorkeling just off of Wasini Island was still great.
