Diving the Crab overview

Diving The Crab was established in 1985 when the first school was opened at Jadini Beach Hotel. Since then we have concentrated all our efforts in providing a professional and dedicated service to our clients. As a result our reputation is known worldwide.
We are extremely privileged to be operating on Kenya's south coast, where the Idyllic Indian Ocean provides warm hospitable waters, teeming with marine life.
Often on our way to dive sites the boat will slow down to play with a school of friendly dolphins or the gentlest of giants, the whale shark.


Diving The Crab has qualified Instructors offering PADI and SSI Scuba Diving courses, from basic "Scuba Diver" through to "Divemaster". If you are not sure whether you want to sign up for a whole course; informal introductions can be given to inspire you and let you see some of the wonders of diving to whet your appetite. The operation prides itself on being friendly but professional.

Excursions are so much fun for the whole family. Visiting Chale Paradise Island includes a barbeque on the gorgeous private, swimming, snorkelling, island walks, bird watching and mangrove tours.
In addition to the diving excursions, dolphin watching trips are very popular. Here you can see wild dolphins swimming alongside the boat, enjoy the pleasant atmosphere as you travel along the lush tropical coastline and if you are really lucky you may even see a whale shark, the gentle giant of the ocean, which also frequent the warm ocean in this area.
The coral reefs along this part of the coast are diverse, so no matter what standard your diving is, you should find interesting dives with a variety of things to see, explore and experience.
Mario Scianna,is the owner of "Diving The Crab" and he is so passionate about boats, diving and the coastal life that he's also had his own boat making company since 1982".
