Diving in Diani

There are several diving spots along the coast of Diani. There are also several fully PADI certified diving operators who offer diving sessions at an affordable fee every day. These diving operators offer beginner, refresher lessons and advanced courses from the comfort of your hotel and can be completed at a leisure with timing suited to your needs.

There are over 20 world class diving sites in Diani. Diving spots in Diani are away from the shore lines, within a 20-25 minute boat trip from Diani Beach. Often on your way to the diving sites, the boat will slow down for you to see a school of friendly dolphins or, the whale shark. One of the recommended places to dive and snorkel is Kisite Marine Park, only a 40min drive down the road through picturesque coconut groves and local villages of thatched huts and makeshift furniture.

We recommend that you book with a reputable diving company such as Baracuda Diving Kenya who will help you with all your diving needs. You are guaranteed to see a spectacle of stunning coral reefs, different species of fish, squids, and cuttlefish among others. Diani beach is surrounded by a reef that runs parallel to the coast providing protection against sharks and dangerous waves, giving surfers and divers a chance to have fun during the tides.
