    Boat trip ended at Wasini Island. Very boring food at the included restaurant
    Nothing special about this Island. They have bad food and the population thinks that you should “promote” them just because they are humans. Definitely not a place I want to see again. But we did see dolphins on our boat trip and snorkeling on a nice reef. So after all the day was ok. Therefor three stars. But Wasini Island itself. Not even one star

    Wasini Trip
    The trip to Wasini was averagely good. We got a good boat at the beginning though later it developed some problems. Our tour guide initially told us that we could step out when we got to the marine park and so some of us who were holding on for the call of nature were looking forward to this. When we got there it was the opposite and we had to wait for another 1.5hrs to get to wasini. The snockering was good we saw some few dolphins too. The food at wasini not so good and the facilities there are wanting especially the washrooms. Kwale County and possibly whoever else is benefitting from this should make it better.

    Nice enough day trip
    Did the day trip from Diani as a family. We had no specific expectations and it ended up being a nice day out. We spotted dolphins then went out snorkeling on the reef. Views of the islands were good and the coral was healthy and full of fish. I thought the lunch was quite good. Staff was friendly and informative. Of course we went in high season so the boat was really full (too full) and there were a number of them. The restaurant was quite full too. Overall it was a typical snorkeling day trip that you find in many countries. Although for this one I got the sense that the local community was very involved and benefited, so it felt quite good.

    Nice place
    Lovely location - long trip from Nyali though . Driver wouldnt turn AC on as too expensive (but we were paying fuel!) and i had three kids sweltering in the back. Made the trip unbearable. Wasini beautiful. no dolphins just lots of fish and coral to see . Lunch was so late should have had first really

The experience was superb and the island is a good place for meditation and comfort. Yoga to the top and ambience is great. Not forgetting the hotel service team that we had which was sweet and concerned of our wellbeing

We visited this island with a local guide who accompanied us inside the village, visiting places far from mass tourism. The disembarkation from the fishing boat far from the island due to low tide was beautiful and on the way back the boarding took place near the rocks as the tide had risen.

We took a private tour around Wasini Island. We were lucky to see dolphins which made the trip somehow nice. The snorkeling along a man mantained dead reef was extremely frustrating. You stop at a big concrete pole so no nature feeling at all. If you have not seen the island itself you have not missed much. We have not been to Kesite National park but were told that the whole trip there was disappointing as well. Not worth the money they charge for these excursions!!!!
