dive centres in and around Diani

My husband and I are coming to Kenya for 2 weeks in December and staying in the modest Diani Sea Lodge. This is so we can spend more money on safaris and diving!!

Can anyone recommend a dive centre in the vicinty? We dive in the UK for the most part and I'm an instructor so looking forward to diving with my husband for a change and in nice warm water :)

This website gives a list....

One of my kids used Buccaneer to get his PADI open water and found them very good. Diving the Crab is another good one.

If you just want an enjoyable day out in the marine park, two lazy dives and lunch on Wasinii Island I'd suggest you conntact PiliPippa.

My camera had a fault - but these are some of what I got with their day out... www.facebook.com/album.php…

Otherwise there are a few dive centres, some mentioned above and also Diani Marine - who have bases in some of the hotels and run a boat.

Hiya,

We got back yesterday, my daughter and I are both Rescue Divers and my wife a newly qualified nervous open water diver. Before we went we researched the 5* PADI centres in Diani and drew up a short list of two. Diani Marine were smaller of the two and seemed to offer a more personal service. After diving with them, they ticked all the boxes for all three of us. Their equipment is well maintained and their staff very helpful, particularly Hamisi, who was absolutely brilliant with my wife who was going into the sea for the first time. If you do dive with them please pass Steph's, Hayley's and my regards onto them, particularly Hamisi - he was so very good.

The Alpha Funguo Wreck, 27m down is a sight for sore eyes:-)

Kindest Regards

Darren
