The southern coast of Kenya offers some of the best diving and most beautiful reefs in the entire country. The area spanning Diani Beach on this part of the coastline is also home to an incredible community of tortoises. You will also find the wreck of a sunken ship here and the possibility of encountering whale sharks from November to February.

Diving for children

Water, fun and adventures are the perfect ingredients for a happy family holiday. Children will be able to enjoy all three with a PADI diving course.

From the excitement of your first breath beneath the water to discovering how easy it is to make somersaults underwater while feeling completely weightless, and from learning how to assemble diving gear to the exploration of incredible reefs. Send your children to their first magical underwater wonderland adventure at one of the best-known diving spots in all of Kenya – and it will become a holiday that they will remember for the rest of their lives.

The diving centre offer a series of courses that were developed especially for children and satisfy the highest safety standards drawn up by PADI, the world leaders in diving education.

Courses vary from only a few hours to a full-scale Junior Open Water Course which lasts 3 to 5 days.

The best diving spots in Kenya

The waters at Diani Beach and the southern coast of Kenya offer some of the best diving spots in the entire country. They are suitable for divers at all levels of experience. From diving spots simply brimming with coral and fish, to the largest fish in the ocean – the whale shark – these locations offer ample opportunities for unforgettable underwater experiences.

Add to that a mix of some of the strangest, most colourful and simply bizarre animals and the macro underwater life, and it is not difficult to understand why divers tend to return to these spots time and again. Of course, let’s not forget the world-class wreck of a sunken ship and the community of tortoises that you will find here as well!
