This lilac blue soft coral reef is stunning. A rainbow of multi coloured fish such as Surgeonfish, Anglefish and Orange Damselfish and smaller tropical fish which live en-mass within the reef’s boundaries fill the picture. Larger fish such as Sweetlips, Jacks, Triggerfish and Hawksbill & Green Turtles reside amongst isolated coral heads to the west.

DOLPHIN POINT

Popular with snorkelers and divers alike this site is appropriately named after the friendly Dolphins that frequent the area. The reef slopes sharply to a sandy bottom where predatory Flatfish lie perfectly camouflaged, and brilliantly coloured soft & hard coral is home to numerous psychedelic fish including Turkeyfish, Lionfish, massive shoals of Squirrelfish, Bigeyes, Parrotfish and Yellow-striped Snapper.

CORAL GARDENS

Unquestionably the best example of multicoloured soft, and hard corals on the Kenya coast, these superb coral formations boast numerous shoals of Butterflyfish, Emperor Anglefish, Rainbow Anthias, Goldies, Bufferfish and Striped Snappers, thousands of small tropical fish filling in the picture. Both Hawksbill & Green Turtle are common sight as are Spotted & Tropical Stingrays.

KISITI POINT

This dive site is ideal for close-up photography with pristine examples of multicoloured coral formations. Large numbers of tame fish and Dolphin mingle with other species including big Surgeonfish, Jawfish, Yellow Snapper, Unicorn fish along with huge Parrotfish. Crayfish, Rock Cod and Lobster hide in the reef’s coral whilst thousands of Garden Eels poke their heads out from the confines of the sandy bottom. Green & Hawksbill Turtle are also often sighted.

NYULLI

‘The All Inspiring’ extreme dive experience in Kenya! Nyulli is a current swept wall starting at 25M with a steep, vertical drop to 40+M. Leaving the buoy line you swim through clouds of Yellow Snapper and Orange Anthias before hitting the larger fish! Schools of circling Big-eyed Jacks get out of the way of inquisitive Giant Groupers and whilst fighting against the current huge Barracuda guard their domain whilst beneath you, you may strike lucky and sight a sleeping Leopard Shark. Full of action its hard to take in all the activity around you! This dive is a must for advanced divers.


Just wanted to say that I enjoy all your posts

Reading celebrity gossip is my guilty pleasure... lol.
Are you guys (who post pictures) the photographers, or do you find them on other sites to post here?
Saw Sinbad today, at a tropical fish store in Chatsworth. He'll be back there on Saturday to drop off his 9ft boa that they are going to sell for him. Couldn't figure out why he looked so familiar, so I said "You look so familiar..." and he replied that it's because he's always in the store. Then someone called his name from the back of the store and he laughed and said "Or maybe you've seen me somewhere else" Ha! I felt like an idiot, but at least I wasn't gushing at him or something equally annoying; we just talked snakes & reptiles while they finished my sale & his paperwork about the snake
