Record wind season!


Finally after 3 years of not great kusi seasons, the wind as we know it returned in the mysterious style of global warming. Since June to day the average wind stats were 20 knots above  85% of days. With the remaining 10% being above 12 knots and only 5% with just not enough wind to kite. This has been an outstanding season and the kiters all scored big time. H2o extreme took lessons out every day and those that were not teaching kiting were teaching surfing! YES! Thanks mother nature lets hope this continues year after year! 

The dolphins have missed you!!

 Pilli Pipa Dhow Trip Reopens for the season! 

We are delighted to inform you that Pilli Pipa Dhow will re-open on Monday 15th June 2015.

For more info

Pilli Pipa has been operational since the early 80s and was the original Wasini Island snorkeling trip before anyone had even heard of it. It provides an amazingly consistent service, on beautifully decked out Swahili trade dhows, delicious food, and incredible snorkelling. You can also try out diving, by taking a fun dive to 12m with Yatin the friendly diver, or for the pros you can do a double dive for super low cost dive rates.

You are almost guaranteed to see the local dolphin pods who have great fun surfing along with the dhow and circling you when you are snorkelling.

If you have a few days in Diani this is well worth spending a day here. Bus departs at 7am and returns at 5pm. You need to book at least the day before. Sometimes the trip will be called off due to the weather but you would get a full refund.

25 YEARS OF Diani Rules

What is Diani Rules? 

Celebrating 25 years of Diani Rules this year on the 29 MAY 2015, 4PM at Forty Thieves Beach Bar. It ends on 31st May. 
Diani Rules is an annual 3 days sports event started 25 years ago by a few people who thought it would be a good idea to bring people to the coast during the low season for some fun and to raise money for a good cause. It is always held on the Madaraka Day Weekend.

All proceeds from this fun charity sports event come to Kwale District Eye Centre
We invite people from all over the world to partake in sports that have had their rules changed to make it more interesting. Teams are made up of eight players of which a minimum partaking in each sport must be three women
Diani Rules got its name because whatever sports are played the rules are changed to try and make it a more level playing field for people of all ages to compete in the fun. Most of the sports are played on the beach or in the sea.
A grand raffle is the highlight of the event. By buying tickets, people who may not be able to come themselves, can still support our mission to eliminate blindness in Kenya. The draw takes place on Sunday lunch time.
Come with your friends and family and HAVE FUN FOR A CAUSE!
