Diving The Crab
With over 30 years of diving experience in Kenya, Diving the Crab offers an unparalleled level of service and expertise in the industry and is reputed to be the best diving centre in Kenya. Offering a range of dive activities for certified divers, and PADI courses across 2 dive centres, Diving the Crab should be your first choice for scuba diving in Kenya.
Diving the Crab is Kenya’s only dive centre that offers divers the chance to dive with Nitrox and at no extra cost! Nitrox, also known as enriched air, makes diving even safer and can be used to extend bottom times, especially useful when making repetitive dives. If you’ve never dived nitrox you can join our specialty course to get even more out of your time underwater.
Green turtles can grow to lengths of 1.5 meters and can weight a staggering 300kg! Despite their size, they can swim upto 35km/h.
Turtle nests take approximately 60 days to hatch, and the female turtle can lay between 100-200 eggs at a time.
Both Hawksbill and Green turtles are currently classified as ‘Endangered’ due to hunting and poaching of eggs.
Sunk on the 21st February 2002, MV Funguo ran aground on the reef outside Kilindini Harbor. She was salvaged and then re-sunk by Diving the Crab just off Diani Beach. Over the last 15+ years, the wreck has blossomed to become an artificial reef and home to a plethora of corals and fish. A must for any experienced Advanced Open Water diver. Nitrox recommended.
Boat Ride: 5min. Average Depth: 22m
