The morning drive is across the ferry to the South Coast where we stop briefly at Diani beach for other pick ups.

At the Shimoni village jetty we board the motorized dhows for a cruise in the marine park and the surrounding Kisite, Mpunguti Islands. Snorkel and marvel at the rich marine life where corals, exotic fish and sea plants are protected. As we sail in the calm waters, we will be on the lookout for the resident dolphins that approach our dhow and beckon us to join them for a swimming duel. At Wasini Island, disembark and take a discovery stroll through the Island and its pure Swahili culture also visiting the giant coral garden and adjacent mangrove swamp forest.

After a short reflective siesta, board your dhows for the sail to the mainland jetty at Shimoni.
