I think if you are spending a day here and a couple of days there, you will find yourself packing, unpacking, waiting at the receptions and organising your transport more than having time to do what you want, especially as all activities start early in the morning! My advice will be to choose one place and have it as your base. From there you can do whatever you want. Here are some names for you on the South Coast (Diani, Galu, Shimoni)

Snorkelling/dolphins/Kisite Marine Park: Charlie Claws and Pilli Pipa

Diving: Kenya Marine and Diving the Crab

Deep sea fishing: Majik Sports Fishing and Get Hooked

You will have more chances to do all these if you stay in one place.

Also, what are your planning to stay in Mombasa for a day for? Old Town and Fort Jesus - 2 - 2.5 hours tops, do it on the way to or from the South Coast. There is nothing more really in town.

Good luck planning!

Diving the Crab are great. nice boats. well maintained gear plenty of staff on dives and some really nice dive sites. After seeing the way they run things and some photos of the turtles my mrs got the dive bug and did her open water with them a couple of weeks ago (It has only taken 17 years to get her to do it )
