Kenya Half Term Activities- Scuba Diving for Kids

Kenya Half Term Activities. It can sometimes be tricky to find things for your kids to do during the half term period. Well Ocean Tribe have one of the coolest options available for Kenya half term activities at our dive base in Diani Beach. We offer a range of programs for children aged 8 and above to learn to scuba dive. For children aged 10 and above we can offer full certification courses. This includes the chance to dive on Kenya's fabulous coral reefs and meet their heroes from underwater flicks such as Finding Nemo and Finding Dory.

Scuba diving is also a wonderful activity that all the family can take part in. It is a wonderful way to get out there with your kids and find a common interest for life. Wherever you travel there are scuba diving opportunities. The reefs in Kenya are one of diving's best kept secrets and obviously located just an hour's flight away from Nairobi. For the next month or so, we also have the chance to spot the largest fish in the ocean, the giant whale shark. This is an amazing opportunity sought after by divers to find our own underwater 'Big 5'.
