Snorkeling of Kilwa Kisiwani & Masoko Pwani
We offer half day trips to a nearby coral atoll, choose to travel by local sailing dhow or by motor boat. Our “house reef” is only a few hundred metres offshore.
Underwater you’ll find a world of texture and colour: metallic-blue starfish, giant clams with royal-purple lips and baby puffer fish floating past. Among this paradise you may see a lionfish lurking under a shelf, his mane-like tentacles fanning out along his backbone.
These waters also shelter five species of turtle, including the rare loggerhead turtle, as well as dolphins and whales, although sightings are rare.

Having run exploratory dives in the area over 10 years ago, we know that the diving potential of the area is comparable to that of the nearby islands of Mafia and Zanzibar.
We were offering diving in Kilwa with another operator but they have now stopped and there is currently no diving in Kilwa and we hope to offer our own diving in mid 2018.
