PADI Diving in Mombasa - Water sports in Kenya
We, Eastern Vacations Tours and Safaris and our diving agent will take you through the experience of a lifetime, and guide you along the fantastic coral reefs of the blue Indian Ocean. Whether you are a qualified diver or ready to start a new adventure, our PADI Resort Facility is the right choice for you!

East Africa boasts the second longest barrier reef in the world, stretching from the coast of Somalia along Kenya to southern Tanzania. It provides a food source and shelter to a vast array of marine life including the majestic  

whale shark and manta ray. Kenya also strives in marine conservation and has set up protected breeding sites for sea turtles along the coastline. For the diving industry, environmental friendly moorings have been installed to avoid damage to corals by anchors.

The Kenyan coast is among the worlds best sites for whale shark encounters. These gentle giants roam the worlds oceans in search of plankton rich waters. They can reach lengths up to 12 meters and weigh 6 tons. Good sightings in Kenya are in the months of Sept/Oct and Jan /Feb. Easily spotted by boat, our captains slowly approach the whale shark and then stop the boat nearby. Under the watchful eye of our staff, the divers may enter the water with mask and fins and fullfill every diver's dream, of swimming with the largest fish in the ocean in its natural habitat. We do not, however, allow any handling of the animals. 

Transportation between Dive Bases
All non-resident divers are transported to and from the Buccaneer dive base of any dive they are booked on with us free of charge as long as they are staying within the Mombasa area.

All divers leaving on the same boat meet at the dive base the trip commences from. All rental equipment required will be set up and ready for you here. You will be briefed about the dive before boarding the boat and will have a chance to ask questions.

Dive Supervision
Each boat of divers is split into small groups which are led on the dive by one divemasters or instructors. All dives are guided, this ensures our divers don't miss points of interest and increases safety.
