We enjoyed our day tour Wasini Island, saw many dolphins, the snorkel trip was marvellous and the food very tasty. All in all an adventure not to miss. Best price offer we got with African Bush and Beach Adventures, Diani Beach. Can recommend this tour.

You don’t have to go in the water if you won’t be comfortable doing so. I didn’t go in. 😀 You can see the dolphins while you’re on the boat. There is scuba diving too but if you don’t want to do it, it’s also okay. 😀
