Snorkeling was first offered as a sport in the tamarind beach hotel
in Mombasa in the early 1970s.
An excursive trip on a boat is known as snorkeling if you are not
competing and have no specific place you are heading to. This sport was widely associated
with the rich and the eccentric, having developed from being an exploratory to a
recreational activity. If you have a penchant for lazy boat rides
over a glass of domestic cultured wine or champagne, then snorkeling along the contours
of the coastline is the extra special treat not listed within the menu. If you feel
envious of the legendary Christopher Columbus who discovered the Americas for being
the first man to experience snorkeling, take comfort in the fact that the Kenyan
coast enables you to be among the first to do it your own way. You
might find yourself a nice spot just as the Portuguese did before they settled here
more than 500 years ago. The eerie feeling around the beaches at
night attracts hundreds of people in special glass boats that can
take up to 35 people. A guide, always available during the trips, will give you
the complete tour of the area. And for all this you only part with 450 Euros per
head. Snorkeling is best enjoyed in the months of September to April,
but around the year one can still enjoy the sport provided there’s not much rainfall.
