Watamu Marine Excursions was formed in 2014. Currently, the community group has 60 members with 15 shared boats. We take visitors on boat excursions generating income for the local community through eco-tourism activities.
Ventures to the nearby coral gardens for snorkelling, swimming and relaxing are popular among visitors to the Watamu area. For people who can’t swim, our glass bottom-boats are the perfect opportunity to experience the marine life of the coral reef.
In addition to countless other fish and sea life, you may see whales, whale sharks, dolphins, manta rays and endangered sea turtles. October to March are the best time to observe the fascinating behaviour of dolphins; humpback whales are best seen August through September.
Sailing trips with traditional boats, or dhows, are also available. We are aware and sensitive to conservation issues and take care to mitigate human-caused damage near the captivating coral gardens or between the channels of Mida Creek. While cruising the waters, ask to stop for a picnic or lunch at Mida Creek, which is known for the abundance of wildlife and birds.
We are committed to conserving the environment and protection of marine wildlife. We are committed to responsible client care. All our members carry a WME identity card that visitors can request to be displayed.
