We often get asked by our divers which of the Kenya dive sites you will visit on your dive safaris with Ocean Tribe in Diani Beach, Kenya. Ocean Tribe runs daily diving trips to both the local Diani reef and wreck dive sites as well as the Kisite National Marine Park. All of these sites rank amongst Kenya’s best dive sites and have remarkably unspoiled coral and a wide range of marine life.

Diani’s dive sites offer opportunities for awesome underwater encounters from the giant whale shark and manta rays (from October to March) with a vast array of macro marine life and a very large turtle community. There is also a shipwreck which was purpose sunk as an artificial reef.

Daily dive sites are selected based on conditions and the experience levels of the divers but the dive sites can cater to a large range of divers from beginner, to intermediate and advanced levels.

All of the dive sites are within a half an hour’s boat ride and are visited on two tank dive trips. The exception to this is the Kisite National Marine park dives which are done on a full day out on a dhow.

We reserve the right to alter or cancel specific dives/tours/courses without notice due to weather, sea conditions, minimum numbers or other factors. We always recommend that you travel with flexibility in your itinerary and with travel insurance – please contact your local travel agent for details on the best travel insurance for your travel needs. Ocean Tribe recommends Divers Alert Network insurance for your water sports insurance needs and they also do a favourable travel package.
