Better for diving! Too high waves for snorkeling, makes it really difficult. Quite deep so better views by diving. Better when the wind is mild

Snorkeling and Swimming with the 🐠
May 2021 • Family
Have been in October 2020 and May 2021. In May the weather is not so favourable as the fish and dolphins are not easily seen. Despite the choppy waters, we were able to see fish during the May visit. Kiddo got sea sick but all in all it was an amazing experience

Snorkeling is ok here. Fish used to humans, makes it fun

Make sure you go while water is clear. Not every time (low-high tide), season is gooed for snorkeling. Fish are used to humans so you swim in fact together with different kinds of fish. You can bargain on price at the boats, better book directly with them than via travel agency. We hade a fun trip. If its the right season fir dolphins, make sure you go early in the morning, not after 9.30 because you’ll miss them for sure.

Snorkeling was ordinary
Feb 2021 • Friends
I drove from Malindi to Watamu to go snorkeling. If you have been on some great places in the world freediving and snorkling... It’s absolutely not worth it!! I think it’s never a good sign if they have to through bread into the water. You see a few fish, but it's far from being amazing.

Unique Coral Gardens

Surrounded by the Clean and white sandy Watamu beach and nestled in the marine reserve it has unique coral reef garden and rich with turtles, cute fishes making it perfect for snorkeling or glass bottom boat rides.

Beautiful - but oh so much plastic on the beach
Nov 2020
One of my favourite places on earth - the sandy white beach is gorgeous and the park teeming with life. But on this trip I collected 25 sacks of plastic along the high tide mark. I know it is a Sisyphean task, but it has to be done (on one morning alone I saw two dead turtles on the beach) - and no one seems to be showing any inclination to keep on top of the huge problem. One would think that the many hawkers, beach boys and coconut sellers would understand by now that it is in their best interests to keep their "office" clear. But no. I actually saw one fellow just dump the debris from his picnic at the high tide mark..sigh.
