Kayak tour

Guided Kayak tours are organised regularly and allow one to experience the Island from a different point of view. Depending on tide and wave heights the tours start either from the beach or the jetty. Please enquire at reception for times.

 

Fishermen Village

Two kilometres to the West of the Island, a local fishing village, Gazi, is bordered by mangrove swamps to one side and a coconut plantation to the other. Excursions to Gazi allow one a glimpse of traditional Kenyan life at the coast.

 

Scuba Diving

The Diving Base is located further on from the Chapateria Restaurant and is open from 09:00 till 18:00

Daily one or two tank dive excursions go to a selection of dive sites both to the north and south of the island.

Shallow coral reefs dropping to depths of 30 meters abound with marine life and the added highlight of frequent Whale shark sightings from November to February make this a diver’s paradise.
