Kisite is one of the most rewarding snorkeling locations at the coast.From Shimoni to the reefs in Kisite-Mpunguti is a 4 to 8 km boat ride.The dhows anchor at the edge of the reefs at dephts of between 4 and 8 m.From here you will have to swim forth and back to the reef.The dolphins are usually very playful and often come close to the dhows.
