Established in 1968 Malindi and Watamu Marine Parks were the first of their kind in Africa. The marine parks teem with diverse coral kingdoms
and varied coloured fish species like Angel, Butterfly, Surgeon and Trigger fishes. The marine department offers glass bottom rides for a fee for tourists to view the aquatic marvels. Boats can be hired privately for half day or full day excursions. Scuba diving and snorkelling can also be facilitated.
