Kisite Mpunguti Marine National Park is considered to be the most magnificent of all Kenyan marine parks. It covers an area of 39 km2 and comprises four small islands surrounded by coral-reef.Major attractions include dolphins (Bottlenose and Humpback Dolphins), sea turtles (mainly Green Turtle and Hawksbill), sea birds, and a multitude of coral fishes. Several times per year, Humpback Whales can be seen relaxing in the shallow waters of the park before they are heading further on their migration route.
Tours to Kisite Mpunguti Marine Natioanl Park and Wasini Island are offered where participants have plenty of time to watch the pods of resident dolphins, for snorkeling in the coral reef, or to even make a scuba dive (for more info regarding diving in Kisite Mpunguti Marine National Park see “Wasini as a Dive Base”).
We kindly ask all visitors to support the island population by opting for a Wasini Boat Operator where a very high percentage of the proceeds benefit the island population, instead of being channeled to foreign bank accounts (see also “Sustainable Tourism on Wasini”).
