The dive instructor in particular was amazing, I was a very nervous first time diver and couldn't have asked for a more patient helpful instructor! The dive was incredible. The food amazing... More

We were staying at Diani Blue (hotel) and went for the day trip. the bus took us to shimoni and we jumped on a dhow. From the moment we met the crew we had a great time, their knowledge and attitude as well as their friendly personalities made the day amazing. We did the fun dive and saw loads; turtles,... More

We had an excellent time at Wasini with Charlie Claw's. I scuba dived at Kisite Marine reserve and my wife snorkelled there. The corals are beautiful there, visibility is great and water temp comfortable. As luck would have it, 11 dolphins started swimming with me while I was inside the water. Overall, Charlie Claw's service was commensurate to the price... More

Trip was well organized and crew was helpful and customer oriented. Snorkelling itself Is mediocre. Corals are good but not as colorful as in Caribbean. Water is too deep- maybe 30 feet and visibility is limited. Some fish but not ask exotic. Water was but choppy churning sand. We spent only one and half hour snorkelling. Lunch was fantastic, great... More

This was a day-long excursion. It started early in the morning and it took us about an 1h30min to get to Charlie Claw's base. We were taken on board of one of their boats and then we sailed towards the Kisite Marine Park, where we did two sessions of snorkelling on the reef, spotting fishes. We have had an amazing... More

The snorkeling was amazing, the boat crew handled a near fatal situation graciously but all we got from the office crew was "sorry about the situation on the dhow" We left our hotel - Mzima House at 7 am and picked up other guests before making our way to Shimoni. We got on the dhow, travelled then guys got in... More
