I spent 2 days in a row diving with Peponi and I have great memories of those days. First It is important to highlight the importance they give to safety by carefully checking experience of everyone, detailed briefings and lectures about the dive sites. The rest is pure fun...Mombasa really has great dive sites, clear water and beautiful colours to... More

First off i would like to say that the staff and Chris the owner was so professional with everything. they helped us to book a dive and a fishing trip, both was really excellent! The dive site was amazing. We got to see many different fishes and nice corals. We were 5 guys and 3 of us already had Open... More

We did the 7 days no limit diving, which sounded great until we found out that each visit to the marine park was going to cost us an additional $20 usd/ person for each visit to the marine park. (so if we wanted to go out twice in the same day it would cost us $40/ person in marine park... More

Hi Jeremy and Kelsey, many thanks for your review here on TripAdvisor. We are glad you enjoyed the diving with us. We are also sad about the fact that Kenya Wildlife Services are charging US$ 20.- per trip and diver. The Mombasa beach operator association has really tried to stop that increase of the entry fees from US$ 10.- to... More

I had a great day of diving with a very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable Peponi team. The equipment was well maintained, and I was given a free refresher in the pool before the dive. My divemaster Julius was fantastic, and the owner Chris was very welcoming and accommodating. I highly recommend Peponi Divers in Mombasa.

It was one of the greatest experiences in our trip around Kenya. Chris is very kind person who helped us not only with the scuba diving but also he gave us useful hints for our following travelling and we had a good time there :) Absolutely worth stopping by :)

I dived with Peponi on the 28th and 29th November. On-line booking of services was excellent and easy to complete. Prices were very competive and a range of price options available. You had the choice of diving inside or outside of Shanzu Reef, but the latter is the best option. Travel out by speed boat which was first class and... More

Chris and his team are very friendly and helpful. Because I didn't dive for a long time, they offered me a free check dive to polish up my skills and make me feel more comfortable. My diving instructor and the whole team were very relaxed, friendly and considerately. Sadly, the visibility under water (diving in the reef) wasn't the best,... More

We found Peponi Diving before arriving to Kenya. We contacted Chris on WhatsApp just to know some information not even knowing if we would dive or not.

Dived here one year ago and was curious to see how Peponi was doing now (Jan 2015) that tourists are fewer in general at the Kenyan coast. What has happened is that business has scaled down a bit (closed Sundays) with fewer staff. Apart from that, it's just as good. Minimum two divers are required for a dive trip to... More
