Professional Diving at Voyager
Discover the secrets of the sea. The warm tropical waters of the Indian Ocean are home to a stunning array of coral gardens and a rich diversity of coral fish in every size, colour and shape imaginable. For deep sea diving, the Buccaneer Dive Centre has qualified instructors to accompany you on the most fascinating diving sites along the coast. Closer to shore is the Mombasa Marine Park where you can snorkel in the company of the beautiful coral fish or simply watch them through the glass bottom boat. The dive center owns its own shipwreck, the MV Dania sunk in the deeper waters where you can dive to the ghost ship which has been colonized by the coral life. Night dives can be arranged on request.
The dive center offers PADI courses to both beginners and also to children – the only requirement is that you have to know how to swim.
For sporty sailors, go kayaking or sail the catamaran or the fun boat – if you are a novice, the instructors will guide you. All you got to do is sit back and enjoy the sea mist or join in and learn how to handle the ropes. The paddleboat is the easiest, requiring no skills but is great for the leg muscles. Enjoy the sea – it’s not only a fascinating world of the blue planet that we are on, but also great for the body and soul.
The Buccaneer Diving Centre works with local conservation groups involved in marine conservation such as the turtle and whale-shark groups, collecting data to monitor their movements so as to come up with strategies to safeguard their movements in the sea. You can sign up for the specialty digital underwater photography, turtle and shark awareness courses offered at the dive centre.
The dive center is also involved in the artificial reef project, investing in ‘reef balls’ made of cement and sunk at various points in the sea to create artificial reefs for the coral fish to habitat. The divers are also continually searching for new dive sites and have discovered secret alcoves of sea horses where only divers with Buccaneer are taken.
The Buccaneers collect rubber flip flops washed ashore for the Flip-Flop project. This innovative project has received worldwide acclaim as local artisans have built a life-size whale from the flip-flops washed ashore and other arty objects depicting sea life.
Passengers can join in the clean up activities in the sea or on beach. Competitions are arranged for the most bizarre object picked from in the ocean and the biggest haul collected. You make you mark as a concerned citizen of the world when you join us.
