I regularly dive with Blue Fin in Watamu and am very happy with their helpful and efficient team. The crew carry your tanks to and from the boat. After gearing up you will be helped to do a backward roll into the water. Relax, follow your guide, and ENJOY. You can even remove all of your heavy gear in the... More

Blue fin diving is the best diving club in Kenya. We did open water and were very well accompanied with professionals. They get you so comfortable that all the fear disappeared. We highly recommended them to pass the PADI !!

I really enjoyed my 6 dives with this dive center which switches between Malindi and Watamu with the seasons. Angelo and Lorenzo are on top of things and run a tight outfit, very much oriented to the satisfaction of the customer. I brought my own equipment so I cannot speak about the quality of the rental equipment but I had... More

We visited the place with a group of friends and appreciated a lot the crew and modern equipment. The dive was actually good - it does not compare with carribean or south east Asia sites, but it is actually enjoyable with nice corrals. The only thing is that the dive spots are a bit hard for beginners. There are no... More

Probably the best diving centre in Malindi. Excellent instructors, helpful and always smiling people, good equipment, real professionals. I spent five days with them in early March 2014, diving in the Watamu national park. I had a pool check first as I hadn't dived since completing my Padi course in 2005. That was a really very nice restart, feeling very... More

Even though we were in Watamu, Angelo, the owner of the diving, was organized every morning to pick us up at our hotel and take us to Diani. I used my equipment so I'm not able to give an opinion on equipment that they rent . The boats they use are appropriate to come out even at low tide. The... More
