A Dhow is one or two masted Arab sailing vessel, common in the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean for transporting people across water. Their bows are sharp, with a forward and upward thrust, and the sterns of the larger dhows may be windowed and decorated.
Wasini Island lies off the southern Indian Ocean coast of Kenya next to Shimoni. It is approximately 5km long and 1km across. There are no cars or roads on Wasini Island. The island is next to the Kisite-Mpunguti Marine National Park.
A site of early Swahili civilization, its attractions include exposed coral reefs. Pick your day and send us an email; or simply call us on +254712918589. @BeachHolidaysKE Your gate-way to Wasini.
The popular full day Wasini Island Dhow tour starts in the early morning when you are picked up from your hotel, apartment, cottage or residence anywhere in Mombasa. You will then cross the Likoni ferry and head for a small town called Shimoni, lying in the South coast of Mombasa.
Enroute, you will have an opportunity to see coastal homesteads and palm tree plantations along the way.
Wasini Island Dhow safari itinerary.....
On arrival at the Shimoni Jetty, at approximately 0800 hrs, you will board a traditional Arabic dhow and sail into the Wasini Channel. The day is focused on relaxation, viewing stunning and colourful surroundings.
Highlights will include snorkeling in the Kisite / Mpunguti Marine Park to spot dolphins, and possibly turtles. Sighting of Dolphins is NOT a guaranteed experience as we will be out in the open seas.
Take time looking at marine-life at the Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park, enjoy an excellent seafood lunch, and then a historical tour around Wasini fishing village. Optionally, instead of the Wasini Village tour, you can simply relax by our pool-side as you reflect on the beautiful day!

You will depart Shimoni in the late afternoon hours to arrive back in Mombasa where you will be dropped at your hotel or accommodation base in the early evening.
