Diving in Malindi

Located on the central coast of Kenya, Malindi boasts shorelines of beautiful sandy beaches and offshore corals. These reefs form three bays full of marine life: Watamu Bay, Turtle Bay, and Blue Lagoon. Another biologically diverse area is Mida Creek, a significant mangrove habitat characterized by dramatic currents, 6km long corals, and fantastic birdlife. The Watamu Marine National Park & Reserve protects the majority of this unique habitat, making it one of the world’s best-preserved underwater reserves.

The Watamu Bay area is home to most of the dive centers that offer diving in Watamu National Park. Most Malindi diving offers daily two-tank dive trips, night dives, and wreck diving adventures. Also popular in this region is cave diving in the Vuma Caves, one of the most exciting scuba diving adventures you can experience. Both beginners and expert divers will be amazed by the magnificent underwater treasures of the Malindi coast. Most dive centers are located inside of the hotels, with dive boats usually departing directly from the beach. It typically takes 20-30 minutes to reach the best Malindi dive sites.
