Swimming with Wild dolphins
We can only offer this activate between the November and April monsoon. Louis has been going out swim with dolphins for many years and has become friendly with a number of local pods. On a good day, and when the dolphines are in the mood to play one can spend ages in the water swimming and being observed by them!
There is a small coral island out to sea where we see the dolphins, called Kynika Rock It has excellent snorkelling and lots of different species of coulerful fish. We are also able to get onto the little island which has its own mini white beach and natural infinity pool to spend some time while we wait for the dolphins to show them selves.The trip costs $USD 50.00 per person and a minimum of 4 people are needed to do the trip. We provide equipment and drinks. The trip leaves at 9am and returns around 12 Noon

Historic Lamu Town Tour
Lamu old town is the oldest and best preserved Swahai settlement in east Africa and has therefore been declared a world Heratage site by UNESCO. When you first see it from the water it looks more like a set for a film from the Middle ages. Lamu is one of the few old historical towns of the word that is still fully functioning in the way that it has done for hundreds of years. It has not been washed and sterilised and turned into a giant museum and instead real life still exists here. Sometimes this can be a bit overwhelming for the new arrival but once you look past the dust and donkeys you will find it to be a very unique and special place. We can arrange a boat trip to take you to the town leaving here around 9 am before it gets to hot and bringing you back at lunch time. We also have a great guide called Abdul who for a small extra fee can show you round and point you to the best spots to have a fresh fruit juice!
Lamu Town Town Tour - USD$70 for the hire of the whole boat - The guide appreciates a Tip and we recommend you give him a minimum of USD$10 for the tour which lasts about 2 hours
