Humpback Whale, spottet in Marine Reserve

The Turtle Bay Dive Centre is located in the grounds of Turtle Bay Beach Club. It is next to the Watamu National Marine Park - one of the world's best-preserved underwater reserves.

 

The Park, encompassing Mida Creek and Whale Island, provides exceptional opportunities for both novices and advanced - level scuba divers. There are over 150 species of hard and soft corals, such as brain corals, fan corals and sponges and over 1000 species of fish. Larger species include whale shark, manta rays, barracuda and octopus. Watamu is also an important turtle breeding area - primarily Green and Hawksbill turtles but it is also possible to see Olive Ridley's, Loggerheads and Leatherback turtles.
