Kisite Marine Park
A great dive Site for beginners or those who have not dived for a long time. It is a very relaxed easy dive with little or no current .
Fantastic with pristine blue waters and creatures that rarely see humans and are thus not afraid. Depths vary from as shallow as you like to as deep as you are prepared to go.
Dolphin Point – Depth 3 – 12 meters
This dive site owes its name to the dolphins that divers are lucky enough to spend time with here.
Hassan Reef – Maximum depth 16m
Turtles have been spotted resting among the coral growths, and brightly coloured angelfish and surgeonfish abound. Further to the west are isolated coral heads that attract bigger fish, such as inquisitive jacks (caranx), big groupers and some large sweetlips.
Pink Reef – 14-16m
This site is made up of small islands of beautiful pink flower soft coral over sand. Once the swarms of sweepers move away you will see small and beautiful creatures hidden among the soft corals. There are a plethora of nudibranchs and flatworms. Try to see how many different coloured leaf fish and ribbon eels you can spot. Also beware; the scorpion fish will be watching your every move.
