Diving

KINASI offers great diving for advanced and novice divers in safety under professional instruction. We take great snacks and picnic lunches aboard our dive boats and stay out for two-tank dives or, after diving, enjoy the rest of the day with a visit to other islands or historic and interesting sites.

The snorkeling on the shallow reefs surrounding the many islands in and around Chole Bay is a great attraction for non-divers and divers alike.

Novices, adventure diving, (night, wall, reef and drift dives) are regular features of an active diving program. For groups of up to six guests a cruise can be planned to take in the marvelous destinations of Ras Mkumbi, Forbes Bay, Kitutia Reef, Okuza and Nyuni Islands and the reef complex surrounding Songo Songo and Njovi islands.

These safaris offer superb diving and snorkeling over exquisite coral gardens in excellent visibility, and have rarely been dived. Trained diving assistants handle all equipment, help divers and check their equipment, so that you are free to enjoy the dives and all other activities during each day. We have a fully equipped dive centre with equipment for up to twenty divers. The Blue World Diving and Water Sports centre is managed by our resident Dive Instructors.
