If you’re going diving in Kenya, check out the Vuma Caves near Kilifi Creek – at a depth of 20 metres beneath the surface, the interior of the caves is a refuge for eels, large grouper and barracuda. Exit is through a 10 metre chimney which emerges through a hole in the reef above.
Watamu Marine National Park is an important area for egg laying for the green sea turtles, which lay on the beaches at Watamu several times a year and they are often seen around this reef.
Nearby Moray Reef has a breathtaking overhang dropping 28 metres to a sandy bottom. The coral here is a refuge for octopus, eel and a massive semi-tame moray. Whale sharks pass through each year from October to February, with good sightings reported each day.
