Wasini Island Marine Dhow Tour helped establish the protected status of the area that is now within the boundaries of Kisite Marine Park, Kenya's best and secluded sealife park. This excursion begins with Global Star Tours transfer pickup from your beach hotel and a drive to the south coast's Shimoni Pier that overlooks the Wasini Channel.
When you arrive, you meet the experienced dive team and listen to a brief introduction about the trip and available options before setting sail in an authentic dhow. As you sail to the park site, you may spot dolphin, including the rare humpback dolphin, as well as aquatic seabirds. Once in the marine park, your adventure begins as you slowly go below the surface to enter an underwater realm that is filled with beautiful coral, fish, sea turtle and other inhabitants. For snorkelers, the outer reef of a rocky islet gives you the chance to see underwater life from a unique vantage point of gazing down into the water to locate and observe the animals.
After a morning of diving and snorkeling, lunch is served at the Wasini Island Restaurant and then the rest of your day may be spent with a visit to the local village by Wasini Coral gardens, or you may even rejuvenate with a nap or just relax on the beachfront and watch the ocean waves splashing against the rocky corals.
