Three Ways to Make Your Water Adventures Thrilling when You’re in Mombasa

Scuba Mombasa KenyaIf you’re planning a trip to the tropical paradise of Mombasa, you’re going to be exposed to some of the most amazing, crystal clear waters anywhere in the world. That means if you’re like most people who come here either for vacation or business, you’re going to be spending a lot of time in the water.

There are plenty of things you can do at the beaches here in Mombasa. In order to make your vacation the best it can possibly be, consider the following three ways you can make your water adventures the experiences of a lifetime.

1. Learn to Scuba dive before getting to Mombasa. It doesn’t matter where you live in the world, there’s likely a scuba school somewhere near you. That’s because millions of people from all over the world take to scuba diving and head to the warm waters where they want to explore.

You can’t scuba dive unless you have a certification and that takes time. You could certainly earn one while you’re here, but there’s no need to spend that time when you can do it near your home.

2. Get a waterproof guide to water life. You can snorkel or scuba dive, but when you see coral, fish, and other amazing sea life and don’t know what it is, you will be missing out. Instead, be sure to pick up a quality waterproof guide you can swim with. The best kind are those that strap to your wrist and are easier to leaf through so you can quickly and easily identify the water creatures you come across.

3. Have a waterproof camera. Most cameras today are digital and one that can be taken underwater will cost a fair amount. Yet there are still disposable cameras that you can purchase relatively inexpensively along with a waterproof case, which will allow you to snap some incredible underwater pictures.

The waters in Mombasa are incredible and when you take this advice, you’ll be telling stories to your friends and family back home for many years to come.
